Sylvania PAR20 halogen light bulbs are the small halogen lamps for many types of small fixture and track lighting.

Sylvania PAR20 halogen light bulbs are a standard for smaller fixtures using halogen floods.  They put a halogen capsule light in a small reflector to give a great amount of light output while delivering good beam control. The Sylvania has one of the widest varieties of PAR20 lamps including many wattages and several beam spreads not typically found in most hardware superstores. 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. It has a full beam of light without the shadows or irregularities that some manufacturers of cheap light bulbs might have.

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 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 lamps 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 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 makes the PAR20 lamps very versatile and quite handy to use.

Sylvania generally calls their halogen line Capsylite and within that category are many different configurations of light bulbs. The variety ranges from standard halogen light bulbs to bipin halogen to the full spectrum variety called Daylight Plus. There are also track lighting bulbs, indoor floods and indoor/outdoor PAR floods.  Whatever the lighting need, there probably is a Sylvania lamp that will work correctly in that situation.  eLightBulbs.com is an online light bulb company that offers the entire Sylvania catalog for purchase over the web. So whether you need halogen, fluorescent or HID sources, we'll have the right bulb for your need. In this case, we have the breadth of the entire offering of Sylvania PAR20 halogen light bulbs.

Here's a helpful tip about lighting a space or area with these lamps. Try to make the area you're attempting to light a true highlight by making the light there three to five times as bright as the surrounding ambient light. This will cause attention to be drawn to the highlighted area. In many cases, people will gravitate toward these areas, so it's good to have product or something interesting there for people to look at. It sounds simple, but doing this makes a difference in how you market product or what kind of statement you're making with what your showing. Another way these lamps can help is with open track lighting in a low ceiling application. When a ceiling is low, then track lighting is sometimes hard to manage.  But with the Sylvania PAR20 halogen, you can have a low area and still have a lot of light which won't interfere with the space or what you're trying to light.  In those low areas, you may also want to consider using their wide flood option to spread the light out as quickly as possible which is critical in the case of a PAR lamp which has a more directed beam of light to start with.

From your local retailer to finer homes, you will most likely find a Sylvania PAR20 halogen lighting your way. The small size of these reflector lamps make it possible to put them in almost any small space or recessed lighting.  Many people also use these halogen PAR20 bulbs for showcasing trophies, elevator, restaurants, clothing stores, jewelry, art work, sculptures, etc. and when shown under this light will appear more brilliant.  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.
