LED PAR light bulbs take advantage of the inherently directional properties of LED diodes. Commercial and institutional building managers have been quick to see the advantages of LED PAR20, PAR30 and PAR38 bulbs compared to traditional halogen PAR lamps.
LED PAR bulbs can match the accent and downlight lighting performance of halogen, while reducing maintenance costs because of the 10 to 15 times longer bulb life. Many LED PARs can be dimmed and operated on occupancy control systems just like halogen. Additionally, LED has the advantage of producing excellent color rendering characteristics and no UV, making it attractive for clothing store, museum and gallery applications.
In residential settings, LED PAR38 bulbs can replace halogen outdoor security lights, while PAR20 and PAR30 LED bulbs make an excellent choice for track lighting and recessed downlights.
