When people want to save energy by using halogen, they sometimes don't like
the spotting effect that most PAR lamps have. It's not something that they
like, but they don't know what else to do, until now. The R30 or BR30
lamps have been used in everything and probably in places it
shouldn't be used, but because it's inexpensive, people do this. But now comes
the new wrinkle in this type of light, they now come in a halogen version.
Westinghouse has put a halogen capsule in the
R30 shell and got a whole great new result. Now the size flood you're used
to is brighter and whiter, making it once again, a great replacement for older
style of incandescent lamps. The
wattages are 60 or 75 watt versions and sometimes called the 60R30/FL/SL or 75R30/FL/SL flood lights. The
brand we carry are by far the most superior product on the market which is the
Westinghouse Spectralite. They fit anywhere a regular R30 lamp
will, including the eyeball fixtures
which can turn in almost any direction.
For most installations, they are used in recessed lighting
with a 4 inch opening and can be dimmed with a standard incandescent dimmer.
The places where these can be used are endless
and sometimes includes recessed or track lighting as a popular option in retail
lighting situations. For retailers, these are one of the best new options
giving a soft light while gaining a whiter light. The R30 is
inches across the face if you're measuring it for identification purposes and
they have a standard medium base too. For those of you who need a slightly
larger version, they come in the 5 inch or R40 size as well.
Many businesses are looking for ways
to get better lighting while becoming more energy efficient. In order to
save electrical costs, just look for areas

our web site. This Westinghouse Spectralite flood light bulbs would be a natural as a
replacement for those old style of bulbs. You will find a great reduction

Be aware that using these on a dimmer will work just fine, but you will need
turn them on full light output on occasion to properly complete the halogen
cycle in the lamp itself. There is a nice reduction going to a halogen
source and you will get the added benefit of getting better lighting as well.
We can't emphasize enough the improvement in the light itself. Many people
would describe it as a cleaner light, making things look better. If you're
a retail store with track or recessed lighting, then this will bring out color
of the products you want to sell.
