R40 long life flood light bulbs that save you money by changing them less often.
These light glass flood lights have been a regular use item for many commercial buildings for many years. Building owners know that changing a bulb less often means greater savings on labor and the hassle of renting expensive equipment for high places. Maintenance people love them because it means less tenant calls with a light that's out. 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. R40 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.
R40 long life flood light bulbs are incandescents that have krypton gas fill and multiple filament support to protect against vibration and rough service. There are a couple of methods to make an ordinary bulb into a longer lasting version. 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.
We have many variations of R40 long life flood light bulbs that can be used in a variety of lighting scenarios. One of the things to keep in mind is that long life bulbs are generally lower in light output than standard bulbs. So when you're designing or creating a new interior space, be aware that these will have a lower light output but they will last much, much longer. One of the reasons that they have a more yellow appearance is that they are rated for 130 volt operation and most people in business and in homes are operating on a 120 volt line. So what that means is that the lamp is in getting driven as hard and it will be less susceptible to voltage spikes. A commercial building has many issues which can cause lamps to have a shorter life, one of them being voltage spikes and another being vibration.
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.
