Energy Saving PAR
PAR lights have traditionally been a halogen domain, but an energy-saving PAR delivers high performance whilst only using roughly a quarter or even a fifth of the energy of a halogen equivalent. That’s something to consider if you’re looking to replace hot-headed PARs with something more economical.
Remember that halogen technology uses 90% of its power to generate heat, so an energy-saving PAR light is not only lower-powered - it’s also cooler. Another major advantage over halogen is lifespan, with a CFL bulb typically lasting 8,000 to 15,000 hours against a halogen’s usual 2,000 hours.
The CFL v LED showdown
With LED technology truly having come of age, and maturing by the minute, it’s no surprise to find that it’s used extensively in making PAR lights. The biggest advantage of fluorescent over LED is simply one of initial cost - you’ll gain a significant advantage over incandescent technology for a modest up-front price. Fluorescent loses out to LED in terms of energy-efficiency, lifespan, and eco-friendliness, but it still fulfils its criteria of impressing in most regards: a CFL bulb will last for years and draws far less power than filament-burning equivalents.
