Displaying products 1 - 1 of 1 results

Some general information.
This type of light bulb has been one of the most common used for certain types of track lighting or recessed lighting. It’s often mounted anywhere from 6 to 12 feet in the air typically, and its beam spread is used to project the light down onto an area. The BR40 dimmable incandescent bulbs are an incandescent light bulb that uses a tungsten filament with a very high wattage. Typically these are known as 65W BR40, 65BR40 or BR40 lamps. These are 5 inches in diameter across the face regardless of whether it’s a wide flood or a narrow spot.

Color and rated life are essential.
If you have these and need a reliable replacement,  we keep these in stock and have one of the highest quality incandescent bulbs on the market today. Because they are an incandescent light, they have that characteristic color of about a white 2700K color temperature which will give you bulbs with warm glow and appearance. Many people like this because it’s perfect for retail lighting source or something used in a home. It makes everybody look natural and of course, it’s high CRI color rendering is near 100. Although these are high quality, the rated life on these isn’t unusually long, that’s why people only use them when they have to. They can be anywhere from 2000 to 4000 hours rated life, and that means they will have to be changed from time to time.

Saving money is good.
If you want to save energy and money, LED light bulbs energy saving can be as high as 90 percent over an E26 base incandescent type of floods. With that kind of energy efficient light, you’re going to get a swift payback of any investment you make. It could be just a few of these or could be a larger quantity; it doesn’t matter your payback is going to be the same. If you want to know how much you can save in real dollars, make sure you download the free spreadsheet that we have on the left-hand column of our website. It’s an energy-saving calculation spreadsheet and gives you everything you need to compare an existing lighting system that you may have right now to one of our dimmable LED equivalents. All you have to do is input the correct data of what you have right now, your kilowatt cost and how many hours a day you run the system. Then just put in data for the light bulb you’re considering from our website,  and it will calculate the savings that you’ll get and the payback time. That’s the amount of time it takes for you to recoup the investment you made in the new lighting that you purchased from us. There’s never been a time to take a look at getting increased energy savings while still maintaining the light that you have now. It doesn’t do any good to save energy if the lighting replacement is weak, that’s why we offer products that are going to legitimately replace old halogen with high light output. If not, you can always stay with the 65BR40 that you have now, still getting the excellent performance and good lighting that you expect.

Good lighting is still the goal.
Although energy savings is significant for any decision like this, getting better lighting should also be something to take into consideration. You can improve your lighting whether it be a retail store, and office or some simple down lighting. Although most people associate full floodlights with bright, warm color temperature, this bright, warm white/soft white version is also available in many people like that for a lot of interior spaces because it’s it’s very similar to those older sources of light. So you’re going to get this excellent performance that is very similar to what you had before. In making a switch even from halogen bulbs, you're not going to have to sacrifice it all to get energy efficiency. Also, the beam angles are very similar which can be an important consideration if you’re talking about something like a retail store. A lot of retail has made some switch to more efficient LED flood light bulbs, but this is one of the most apparent retrofits that’s going to give you the best return on investment. And if you’re used to having different beams spreads like before with this, you also get that choice as well. It’s a complete replacement that will do the job for whatever type of situation that you may have.

For some people, there is no replacement for incandescent lighting.
There are many situations where the right type of light is the most critical factor in a particular case. It doesn’t matter how much energy you can save; you need to have the right kind of light for the aesthetic appeal of whatever you may be trying to light. It could be something like a retail store, and that’s often what many people will say. Retail lighting goes beyond things like efficiency when it comes to marketing properly to the public. It can make all the difference, and we’ve noticed how some retail stores don’t look good with certain types of fluorescent or even LED. Sometimes it seems unnatural, and not as inviting. It can be a subtle variance, but something some retailers will compromise on. That’s also true in the home if you like the look of incandescent lighting, nothing else is quite the same. You may have even designed your home around the feel of incandescent lighting, its warmth and color temperature which is very hard to mimic. Even though there are many options today that can be close to an incandescent type of flood light, there are sometimes when nothing else will do. And for those of you people who have to have that, we will continue to carry incandescent lighting for you into the future. There will always be a market for this type of light no matter how significant the efficiencies can be with other alternatives like LED. The choice is truly yours and where you want to take your lighting in the future.
