Should I use a Satco PAR20 bulb or an R20 bulb?

Satco PAR 20 bulbs can be used in recess lighting, however, recessed lighting is not the primary application for PAR20 bulbs. A PAR bulb is designed to concentrate light precisely into a specific area. The bulbs are best suited for museums, pathways, retail displays, showcases, and theatres. A BR20 bulb would be better applied for recessed lighting because it offers a wide beam angle with a high lumen output (brightness)
