What Is A Br Bulb? [SOLVED!]

No, there are no intrinsic colourr differences between PAR and BR bulbs other than the actual colourr you’re purchasing. Think of it like clothes… the same clothes might be available in an array of different colors. Light bulbs are no different. All PARs, BRs are available in any colourr. Most common colours are daylight and soft white. Warm or soft white (2700K – 3000K) is typically more suitable for home use in the family and bedrooms. Daylight (5000 – 6500K) is more often used to light kitchen areas 🙈 See below the Kelvin scale that illustrates the range of colors available 🙌 Energy Star has more information about colorr. [1]
BR and R shapes bulbs are able to provide ambient lighting through recessed cans, track lights, or general wall washing. If you need a long-necked bulb for a deeply recessed can, you can consider using the little-known ER30 or “Elliptical Reflector” bulb for your fixtures. BR or R-shaped bulbs can be used in incandescent, CFL, and other lighting options. LED light sources. The heat sink design, as well as the already directional nature LEDs make LED BR and R shapes more an aesthetic choice rather than a necessity. [2]

Flood bulbs for BR come in a range of wattages, outputs and wattages to suit different settings and spaces. Take into account things like ceiling height and room dimensions, as well as desired levels of brightness. For instance, say you’re currently using standard 65-watt incandescent bulbs to illuminate your living room. For the same amount of brightness, you could also replace them with a couple 9 to 10 watt LED BR bulbs. These bulbs may also diffuse the light more evenly depending on how large or small your room is. The diffused lighting will create a softer look in your space without having to use multiple incandescent bulbs. Angela Chavez, Gulbarga (India) on December 26, 2021 revised this article. [3]

Now—that doesn’t leave BR bulbs without their advantages. BR bulbs have a frosted or patterned surface that can give a space ambiance. Due to their reflective lens and reflective surface, PAR bulbs can be more harsh in determining where light begins and ends. The lens doesn’t allow light to spread much further than the angle of the had beam spread. BR bulbs tend to have a more gradual “fade” in light as the light reaches the outer limits of the had beam spread. BR bulbs produce less shadow that PAR bulbs.
