              A:

              The 'BR' refers to the shape of the bulb and stands for Bulged Reflector. The number refers to the diameter of the reflector. A lot of lighting uses the rule of 8- divide the number after the BR by 8 and you'll have the bulb diameter. A BR30 has a 3.75" diameter.

          • Q:

            Question has been asked previously if the bulb works with a dimmer switch and the answer was yes. Does this mean the bulb is dimmable? Just because it "works" on a dimmer switch does not mean that it is a dimmable bulb.

              A:

              The 85 watt version of this bulb has been discontinued due to government legislation aimed at improving energy efficiency. The 65 watt bulbs are the highest wattage incandescent available in this size and shape. There are some compact fluorescent lamps available in a similar size and shape that are equivalent to a 75 watt incandescent bulb. There are also halogen bulbs available that will use less energy but have a brighter light output. See the attached link to view those items. http://www.bulbs.com/Halogen_Reflector/results.aspx?No=0
