Product Spotlight: Philips 17 Watt PAR 38 LED Replacement Lamp

At Energy Saving Lighting, we like to shine our spotlight on one product each month that we believe is especially useful for home and business owners looking to save money on their energy bills. This month, the spotlight is falling on the Philips 17 Watt PAR 38 Replacement Lamp.

This bulb is well suited to a variety of applications, offering the equivalent of 90 watt standard incandescent bulbs, but they’re ideal for replacing bulbs that are in hard-to-reach areas, on for an extended period of time or need to be environmentally friendly.

If you’re replacing a bulb in a hard-to-reach area or planning to use this light for an extended period of time, this bulb is a great choice over an old-fashioned incandescent light bulb. The Philips line of PAR 38 bulbs are rated for a very long life. You can expect them to put out 70 percent as much light after 25,000 hours of operations as they did when brand new. This means you won’t have to change your light bulbs nearly as often. In fact, you can expect to change an incandescent bulb 25 times before you’d have to change this bulb at all.

The savings customers see with this bulb are phenomenal as well. You can expect to see $31.97 in annual savings and a 272 percent lifetime return on investment. That’s $159.85 over five years. For businesses and homeowners looking to save a little money, making the switch over to energy efficient lighting is a no-brainer.

This PAR 38 lamp is suitable for use in wet locations and open devices, but should not be used with dimmers or in enclosed fixtures. If you need a dimmable lamp, check out the rest of our selection of LED outdoor lamps.
