What are PAR30 Bulbs?
Parabolic aluminized reflector (PAR) 30 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. Like all light bulbs, the 30 value represents the diameter of the bulb in 1⁄8 of an inch. Therefore, PAR 30 types are short light bulbs that are 3.75 inches in diameter.
PAR30 LED Replacements: PAR30 and PAR30 LED short neck bulbs are some of the best applications for LED due to its directional nature. LED PAR30 provide similar output and beam profile characteristics while using only a fraction of the power.
What is a LED PAR Bulb?
An LED PAR Bulb is a highly intensified type of LED light that produces up to 4X the amount of concentrated light than traditional incandescent bulbs. LED PAR bulbs are energy efficient, cost effective, and require very little maintenance.
LED Par Light bulbs are so versatile that they are the bulb of choice for most LED Downlight, Recessed, and Track Lighting applications. The most common sizes of PAR bulbs vary in size from PAR16, PAR20, PAR30, PAR36, and PAR38.
LED PAR bulbs provide a dimmable, bright light that requires less energy to operate. Find the best prices on all your energy efficient LED PAR bulb for every situation here.

What do PAR and BR and MR stand for?
PAR stands for “parabolic aluminized reflector” and is best used in settings that require a focused, narrow beam of light. Most PARs do not exceed a beam angle of 45 degrees in most cases. BR stands for “bulged reflector” and is considered a wide-angle floodlight often exceeding 100-degree beam angles. MR means “multi-faceted reflector” and the most narrow of the bulb types mostly used as a spotlight.
Size comparison of PAR vs BR floodlights
It’s actually even easier grasp than you might think. The difference between a BR20, BR30, and BR40 is actually the size or diameter of the light bulb. The number represents increments of an 8th of an inch. For example, a BR30 is 30/8ths of an inch or 30 divided by 8 which equals 3.75″ in diameter. The same example applies to a PAR38. Divide 38/8ths of an inch or 38 divided by 8 which equals 4.75″ in diameter. Check out the comparison chart below. Don’t worry… we’re visual learners too.
