Using Low Wattage PAR 20 LED Light Bulbs In The Bathroom

In our prior article within this series on using energy and money saving LED light bulbs in the home, we showed how we used 3.5 Watt PAR 20 LED light bulbs in recessed ceiling lights in our daughter’s bathroom and bedroom.

Today, I wanted to show two areas in the other en suite bathroom in our home where we used this very low wattage LED lighting.

First, remember my strategy for using two of these 3.5 Watt LED Par 20 LED light bulbs in my daughter’s bathroom ceiling?

Well, I tried the same strategy in our en suite. We have the same four mini recessed lighting fixtures in our en suite.

So, the plan was to place two of these 3.5 Watt LED light bulbs in the two pot light fixtures which are by the bathtub, leaving the higher wattage LED light bulbs in the other pair of pot light ceiling fixtures near the sink and mirrors. The pair of 50 Watt incandescent recessed ceiling light bulbs by the sink and mirrors.

Below is a picture of the pair of high wattage recessed incandescent lights near the bathtub in the same en suite bathroom.

Now compare to the following picture which shows the same bathtub at night now being lit by the two 3.5 Watt LED PAR 20 recessed ceiling lights.

Now there is just one light switch which turns on both pairs of recessed ceiling lights. So, the bathtub area also receives indirect light from the higher Wattage pair.  That is why you do not notice too much difference between the before and after pictures of the bathtub area above. What is nice is that if you are in the tub you no longer have very bright lights in your eyes.

Now for the next bathroom area where we used just one of these very low 3.5 Watt LED PAR 20 light bulbs.

The picture above shows the potty room adjacent to the same en suite. Previously it had a 14 Watt CFL which produced not only a little to bright a light but also a constant hum.

So, I was curious if a single 3.5 Watt LED PAR 20 light bulb would provide sufficient light by itself. Below is a picture of the same tiny potty room with a single of these very low wattage LED light bulbs.

It might appear to be a tad on the dark side. However, I have to tell you that when it is the middle of the night and you have to, well you know icon wink Using Low Wattage PAR 20 LED Light Bulbs In The Bathroom , it is really nice to not walk in and turn on a really, really bright light!

Next time, a use for five, yes five, of these extremely low 3.5 Watt LED PAR 20 light bulbs in an area I never would have thought about previously. Using lower wattage LED lighting which we received from The Home Depot will help reduce our electricity usage and thus save money through lower electric utility bills for many, many years to come.
