- What's Included
You don't need to break the bank on your electrical bill each month in order to enjoy soft bright lights. Toss out that short-life, high-energy incandescent bulb and replace it with the Sylvania 14 Watt R20 CFL Medium Base Light Bulb, a compact fluorescent flood-style bulb that fits in any standard indoor or outdoor bulb base. It emits 495 Lumens, which is higher than the 330 Lumens emitted by a 50 Watt incandescent light bulb. This long-life bulb will last up to 8000 hours, more than five times that of standard, 1500-hour incandescent bulbs. You'll conserve energy with every use without sacrificing the soft glow associated with incandescent lamps.
For more information on how alternatives to standard incandescent bulbs work to save energy, refer to the Energy Efficient Substitutes for Incandescent Bulbs article in the Smarthome Learning Center.
Fluorescent Lighting Benefits
Fluorescent lamps aren't just for the workshop any more. Fluorescent lighting provides the performance, color and energy-efficiency you want at an affordable price. Screw the Sylvania 14 Watt R20 CFL Medium Base Light Bulb into any indoor or outdoor flood fixture to start saving energy: This bulb will save up to $28 in energy costs over the life of the bulb. Fluorescent bulbs can even be included with your home automation system: Plug the lamp into an INSTEON On/Off Module for instant remote control using any INSTEON or X10 controller.
What Size Bulb Do You Need?
Here's a good rule of thumb for selecting a compact fluorescent bulb: Divide the wattage of your desired incandescent bulb by 4 to determine the approximate wattage of compact fluorescent lamp that will provide similar light output.

Good light but takes a few moments to "warm up". Physical dimension is too long to be a replacement of standard R20 bulb so causes glare as it sticks out of the can a little.

This bulb creates excellent light and color rendition however I have had two bulbs so far burn out prematurly. Not even coming close to the 8000hr claimed life.
