85 Watt BR40 Philips Light Bulbs now Discontinued

As part of the mandate from Congress, another bulb is now discontinued and out of stock. The 85 Watt BR40 light bulbs.....all variations. To assist out customer in making the best decision on what replacement bulb to start using in their applications, we have put together a spreadsheet that outlines your options.

A couple of things to note: The halogen bulbs are going to put out a bit more heat that the incandescent bulbs. Also, the par halogen bulbs are shorter than the incandescent BR40. The width won't be that noticable but the length will. Therefore if you go with this option, you will need to purchase bulb extenders for each socket. You will only need to purchase these once.
