Sylvania PAR20 Capsylite IR halogen bulbs save energy over standard 50 watt versions with infrared technology.

Would you like to save energy over standard PAR20 lamps while still getting the same amount of light output?  Sylvania has developed the next big innovation in halogen technology which creates more light without consuming more energy.  We now have the PAR20 lamps available that have a specially designed halogen capsule featuring a multi-layered thin film coating that allows visible light to pass through while reflecting infrared energy back to the filament.
  It makes the bulb much more energy efficient, and in the case of the PAR20, it allows the wattage to be reduced to 40 watts from the standard 50 watt lamp.  That's a 25% reduction in energy, making your electrical bills smaller.  As a part of our complete Sylvania offering, we have all the variations they have. PAR20 bulbs will often have an elongated neck with a small reflector, just above the Edison (medium) base. The longer neck makes it possible to use these in fixtures that have some size constraints and it also looks more appealing for applications where the fixture does not cover the bulb.  Though many PAR20 bulbs are similar, we do believe that the Sylvania product is superior for its beam patterns and light output.

Halogen bulbs are incandescent bulbs, just like the typical R20 flood bulbs we have been using in lamps for years and years. Halogen bulbs, however, are filled with a special gas that actually rebuilds the filament and provides longer average lifespans than normal incandescent bulbs. They come in different shapes and sizes for various different uses. The Sylvania PAR20 Capsylite IR halogen light bulbs are flood shaped with the heavy, thick glass that is common to many medium to large sized halogen bulbs. PAR stands for parabolic aluminized reflector. These types of bulbs will provide you with a high light output, a more white-colored light (a higher color temperature - approximately 3000K), and longer life than normal R or BR reflectors. That is why the halogen are many times used in energy saving lighting situations because they are more efficient in their light production. The PAR20 is a good direct replacement for the incandescent R20 or standard PAR20 halogens that have been used in track lighting or small recessed cans over the past decades. Replacing these will give you more light while reducing energy costs.

The Sylvania PAR20 Capsylite IR halogen is a small flood bulb and are not as large as many halogen flood bulbs available. You can tell what kind of PAR lamp you have by measuring the distance across the widest point of the bulb. The number after 'PAR' represents the number of eighths of an inch the bulb diameter is. Therefore, PAR20 lamps are 2 1/2 inches across. PAR20 lamps are widely available from Sylvania, Westinghouse, and most other small bulb manufacturers. They have standard bases and are able to be used indoors or outdoors. This means they can be directly exposed to rain or snow and still function normally and they do not need to be covered by a light fixture.  This new lamp is typically 40 watts replacing the older 50 watt version while delivering the same amount of light.  The code for this lamp is usually something like 40PAR20/CAP/IR plus the associated beam spread that you would find whether it be wide flood, narrow flood or spot.

Many people also use these PAR20 bulbs for restaurants, clothing stores, jewelry, art work, sculptures, etc.  In the case of retail lighting, the way you light something can make the difference in selling something or not.  Whatever type of lighting need you have, you will be saving energy while getting the most light you can for your money.  We have a large inventory of halogen bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  If you need help identifying the bulb you have, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
