PAR30LN Replacement?

Hi all,

I have about 10 PAR30LN light bulbs in my condo - right now I'm using the Sylvania Halogen Flood bulbs which put out 1070 lumens but they're halogen so still use a lot of power relatively speaking. Can someone smarter than me (or just better at Google) recommend a more energy-efficient bulb that still puts out that much light? They're not on dimmer switches.

Thanks!

Just tried searching that bulb type with "LED Canada" and saw that Lowes seems to have some options. Not sure what stores you have available in Victoria, so maybe that link would be helpful.

Doesn't look like they'll be very cheap though, so it might not be worth it to replace them; something to consider.

LN is just the long neck version of a regular PAR30. You can buy 2" e26 extensions to extend out a regular PAR30 or move to a BR30, unless you absolutely need the flat front of a PAR. 13w LED is what you'll need to achieve a similar 1000 lumen output. Most 9w LEDs are only 650-720 lumens.

There are no apostrophes in plurals! "I have 1000 posts" = correct. "I have 1000 post's" = incorrect!
Could've, would've, should've. It's simple English, people!

Thanks for the info!!! This is great. I should have an easier time with extensions or looking for BR30
