PAR, also known as parabolic aluminized reflector, bulbs are designed to illuminate a specific area. Typically, these bulbs are used for downlighting, floodlighting, and spotlighting in commercial and residential applications. You'll commonly see them used in landscape lights, recessed lights, and track lights. Due to their ability to properly highlight products, they are also used frequently in retail stores and art museums as well. PAR light bulbs come in four different sizes that are referred to as PAR16, PAR20, PAR30, and PAR38.
In the past, these areas typically utilized PAR halogen bulbs, which provided decent light at that period of time. However, they had extremely short lifespans and the heat they generated was almost unbearable. Now that PAR LED light bulbs have been introduced to the lighting market, you'll will save you money on electricity costs, because they require less wattage to operate while providing a better quality light output. They also last up-to 4 times as long as their halogen predecessor, which results in less replacements.
