Get up to seven years of quality illumination when you swap out your incandescent bulbs for BR30 and R30 CFLs. Commonly used as flood lights and a variety of other overhead lights, energy efficient R30 and BR30 CFL bulbs can be used to provide bright are lighting in your home or business. These reflector-style lights can be used for flood lights, track lights, recessed lights and more and are a good choice for upgrading inefficient incandescent bulbs because they provide a much longer lifespan on average.
The primary difference between the BR30 and R20 type lamps is that the BR30 is the newer, more energy efficient upgrade to R20s. In other words, a BR30 CFL will put out the same quality lumens at a lower wattage than an R20 bulb. Because BR30 and R20 bulbs are the same size, they are interchangeable, so you can use the BR30 wherever you previously used R20. These types of lamps are also the same size as PAR30 bulbs, so you can use them in fixtures where you previously had installed a PAR30.
BR30 and R30 CFLs are commonly used as outdoor overhead lights, floodlights and other applications where directional reflector-style lighting is important. Today's CFL R30 and BR30 bulbs are energy-efficient, powerful, and can last up to 7 years with routine usage. Here at BulbAmerica, we carry a wide range of R30 and BR30 CFL bulbs from some of the industry's leading manufacturers, including GE, Philips, Satco, Luxrite, and Sunlite.
So what, exactly, is the difference between R30 and BR30 CFL bulbs? The difference is simply the diameter of the bulb. R30 bulbs are the larger of the two bulbs. BR30 bulbs are actually the newer, more energy-efficient version of R20 bulbs and are the same size as R20s. R30 bulbs have a diameter of 3.75 inches, while BR30 bulbs have a diameter of 3.5 inches. Both R30 CFLs and BR30 CFLs are excellent choices for homeowners and businesses owners looking to maximize energy efficiency and affordability in their floodlights, overhead lights and recessed lighting applications.
