PAR20 LED bulbs are the perfect replacement solution for their halogen equivalents. They are able come to full brightness instantly while operating at much cooler temperatures. These bulbs use up to 88% less energy and last significantly longer than comparable halogen options. PAR20 LED light bulbs are ideal for use in interior recessed lighting and track lighting fixtures.
Parabolic aluminized reflector (PAR) 20 LED bulbs are designed to control light more precisely. They produce about four times the concentrated light intensity of general service A shape incandescents, and are used in recessed and track lighting. Like all light bulbs, the 20 value represents the diameter of the bulb in 1⁄8 of an inch. Therefore, a PAR 20 is 2.5 inches in diameter.
PAR20 LED bulbs are intended to be a more efficient replacement for traditional halogen equivalents. LEDs give you the ability to choose how warm or cool the light emitted from your PAR20 bulb, whereas halogens were only available in the 3000K range. They are also longer lasting bulbs that use less electricity and give off less heat as well. Aside from the multiple color temperatures available, PAR20 LED lights also have multiple beam angles to choose from, such as 15 degrees (narrow spot), 25 degrees (narrow flood), 30-40 degrees (flood), and greater than 50 degrees (wide flood). Most PAR20 light bulbs are dimmable with LED compatible dimmers, and many are even Energy Star rated, which can help your home or business qualify for rebate incentives.
PAR20 LED bulbs are often used in display lighting and track lighting. Some even have a CRI (color rendering index) that is greater than 90, which makes them an excellent choice when used in art installation and museums.
PAR20 LED Bulbs FAQs
PAR20 LED bulbs are designed as a one-for-one replacement solution for their halogen equivalents. They provide a more efficient and long lasting alternative without sacrificing any light output.
PAR20 LED bulbs come in a wide range of different beam angles, color temperatures, and lumen outputs. They feature two different base types, E26 (medium base) and GU24 (bi-pin).
PAR20 LED bulbs are commonly used in lighting applications that include display lights, flood and spot lights, outdoor fixtures that are protected from the elements, recessed downlights, and track lights.
Here are some of the benefits provided by PAR20 LED bulbs:
• Up to 85% more efficient than halogen alternatives • Low heat generation, making them ideal for display lighting • Unique full face optics to provide a better quality of light, while retaining the traditional look of a halogen • Dimmable and non-dimmable versions available • Light weight, which helps ensure track and downlight installations do not strain • Composed of durable plastic to lower the risk of injury or breakage • Smooth clean outside housing, which allows them to blend into existing lighting applications • Excellent color consistency and CRI to enhance colors • 25,000 hour rated life • 5 year warranty
