BR40 long life flood light bulbs for recessed and track lighting.
In this age of trying to achieve greater energy efficiency, one would think that this type of bulb would be coming less popular, but that's not completely true. There's no doubt that some people have switched to other sources that are more efficient like compact fluorescent, but sometime the look of a recessed light is only proper when using BR40 long life flood light bulbs. These light glass flood lights have been a regular use item for many commercial buildings and homes for many years. Building owners know that using a long life bulb means greater savings on labor and the hassle of renting expensive equipment for high places. Now, both business and home owners can now get the benefit of a longer life flood light bulb. These are rated at 10,000 hours which means they'll last about 13 times longer than the average retail store bulb. BR40 long life flood light bulbs come in several wattages and have a smooth face flood appearance. The R40 size is the exact size of a large standard household flood which is 5 inches in diameter across the face.
These bulbs are incandescent lamps that have krypton gas fill and multiple filament support to protect against vibration and rough service. Many people think that the cost of these flood bulbs are very expensive, and to be sure they are more money than standard ones. But over their life, they say money over the standard cheap light bulbs that you buy in the store. They have a brass medium base which most people know as a regular light bulb base. This makes it easy to use them almost in any fixture where you use a regular light bulb now. So think about all those areas where you have hard to reach fixtures, and use these incandescent long life light bulbs instead. For owners who had trouble getting bulbs out of sockets after years of use, you'll find these to be easier when removed. They have a brass base which doesn't get seized in the sockets like regular aluminum base light bulbs do.
So if you have a recessed lighting application and want to get longer life, then these flood lights would be the answer for you. In both the smaller sizes and the larger sizes all have the same great construction which should give years of service in the average home. You'll actually save money over the years by using these, they actually save you money while delivering a great light.
