LED PAR bulbs
Parabolic aluminized reflector (PAR) bulbs 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.
PAR type lamps are generally considered superior. The explicit parabolic nature of the reflector means light is more precisely reflected directly out of the bulb cavity, with less dispersion, than an R or BR type lens.
LED GU10 and MR16 bulbs
MultiFaceted Reflector (MR)16 lamps are regularly used in place of standard incandescent light bulbs for applications including residential lighting and retail lighting. They are well suited to a variety of applications that require directional lighting of low to medium intensity, such as track lighting, recessed ceiling lights, desk lamps, pendant fixtures, landscape lighting, retail display lighting
GU10 and MR16 LEDs match the brightness of halogen lamps but use only a fraction of the energy.
LED bulbs consume one-sixth the energy of incandescents and last up to 25 times longer! Replacing a 60-watt incandescent with an LED equivalent will save you $130 in energy costs over the new bulb’s lifetime. The average American household could slash $150 from its annual energy bill by replacing all incandescents with LED bulbs.
How do I choose the right light output?
|2600 lm||150 W||25-28 W|
