Trending in the Aisles: Short Neck PAR30 LED Light Bulbs

Of all the shapes in light bulbs being upgraded to LED versions, the one in this post is one of the most sought-after.

It's a shape and size isn't that too common, but when you need it, there's no other alternative.

The PAR30 (Parabolic Aluminized Reflector in 30 eights of an inch diameter) size is relegated to fixtures where nothing else can work to fit in its socket or housing. Particularly, the short neck version is one that can only fit in some of those light fixtures.

A good example is the main image above for track lighting. PAR30 short neck light bulbs were only relegated to halogen (which we still sell and shown below).

CREE, the leader in LED lighting technology, has finally answered the needs of the many consumers who want this specific bulb in a more energy-efficient version.

Shown below and linked here, the Short Neck PAR30 gives you the same color temperature (3000K) of their halogen counterparts.

This means that you can mix LED and the older halogens if you don't want to commit to changing them out all at once, and you'll still get the same consistent light.

Upgrading to LED from halogen will save you not just on energy costs, but also on heat. 

As you may or may not know, halogens produce the most heat from any light source. And LED lights bulbs the least; so for low ceilings that require these bulbs in the fixtures, consider using them to reduce the heat felt where they will go.

These LED bulbs are dimmable, but depending on the dimmer will let you know if it can work effectively or not.

I'm personally glad we sell these light bulbs are finally on our shelves. Be on the lookout for them at your local Home Depot as well as more options here online.
