Sylvania halogen light bulbs are an excellent lighting source for brighter, whiter, cleaner light. While this certainly benefits home users by providing a more enjoyable living space, it benefits retail businesses and restaurants by increasing sales. How, you might ask? Many studies have shown that the type and quality of lighting present in a commercial location has a major affect on foot traffic and sales. Often times, stores will decide to forgo a lower cost lighting option and install high quality Sylvania halogen bulbs since they realize from experience that the slightly higher cost of halogen bulbs will be easily covered by increased profits from sales. The Sylvania 60PAR16 is an example of a flood style halogen bulb often used in track lighting or recessed lighting. Certain floor lamps also work well with the PAR16 light bulbs.
You can see and feel the difference in the construction of the Sylvania PAR16 bulbs. One of the most noticable things about the physical look of the bulb is that it has a ceramic shell around the outside of it. This is specially designed for heat dispersion and bulb protection. The bulb has a standard base, like most incandescent halogen bulbs. The diameter can be a very important factor in deciding if you want to use a PAR16, or possibly a PAR20 or PAR30 bulb. The diameter is represented in each of these bulb types by the number after the letters 'PAR'. This number shows the eights of an inch accross the top of the bulb. Make sure you've checked this carefully before ordering a Sylvania halogen flood like this. If you don't, you might end up receiving the wrong sized bulb.
