Sylvania PAR30 short neck halogen light bulbs are the shorter choice for many types of track lighting and recessed lights.

Sylvania PAR30 halogen light bulbs are a standard for many fixtures using halogen floods today.  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 PAR30 lamps including many wattages and all beam spreads not typically found in most hardware superstores. As a part of our complete Sylvania offering, we have all the variations they have. PAR30 bulbs will have a variation of short neck or long neck with a medium size 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.  These have a longer length than the short neck and each one has a certain application that is correct. Though many PAR30 bulbs are similar from different manufacturers, 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 PAR30 light bulbs might have.

Halogen bulbs are incandescent bulbs, just like the typical B and R30 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 PAR30 short neck 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 PAR30 is a good direct replacement for the incandescent BR30 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 typical wattage of the old BR30 is 65 watts, and so replacing them with a 50 watt PAR30 will save 15 watts and deliver better lighting at the same time.

The Sylvania PAR30 short neck halogen is a medium sized flood bulb and are not as long as the PAR30 long neck. 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, PAR30 lamps are 3 3/4 inches across. PAR30 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 PAR30 lamps very versatile and quite handy to use many kinds of light fixtures.  The short neck version is about 3 3/4 inches long which is about an inch shorter than it's long neck cousin.  These will also recess farther up into a downlight or track lighting fixture.  This has advantages in certain places where you want to hide the light source.  It will be shielded from the angle which could bother some people in their field of view.

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.
