Comments about Philips SAVE 50-65 WATTS JUST BY CHANGING YOUR BULB! 25 Watt, Warm White PAR38 Metal Halide Flood Lamp:

Replaced (50) 150W halogen bulbs with (60) of these Philips 25W bulbs for an exhibition gallery hall--much cleaner light that lasts 10x longer at 1/6 the energy! Biggest savings have been from replacing bulbs much less frequently (the cans are 20 feet off the floor).

Be aware that these bulbs take 5 minutes to warm up, and need a 15 minute cycle time if they are turned off then on again.

All-in-all, an excellent quality bulb!

  • Q:

    Is this rated for exterior use to replace a standard PAR38 lamp? Can it be used with photocell or timers. I realize the warmup time would not make it a good choice with motion sensors.

      A:

      This bulb can be used outdoors and has a minimum starting temperature of 4 Degrees Fahrenheit. Bulb must be in a protected area but not in a totally enclosed fixture. Bulb must not be exposed to moisture or the elements. This bulb is not recommended for use with dimmers or other control devices (timers, sensors).
