WORCESTER, Mass., March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bulbs.com, one of the largest online distributors of replacement lighting is announcing a price reduction on a majority of popular LED bulbs including many products in the EnduraLED™ line from Philips.
"LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting products are growing in popularity as an energy-efficient replacement solution for commercial and residential lighting," says Bulbs.com CEO Mike Connors. "There have been a lot of questions about LED quality over the past few years, so at Bulbs.com we insist that the LED products we sell are only from manufacturers who can demonstrate their ability to reach then sustain the highest levels of performance and deliver an excellent value to end users. Declining costs from our LED suppliers and the efficiencies made in product distribution are allowing us to decrease our LED pricing and we are excited to be able to pass these savings along to our customers," says Connors.
LED lighting offers a wide range of benefits: Energy savings, rated life up to 50 times longer than halogen and fluorescent bulbs, and reduced costs for maintenance, replacement, and HVAC.
"The decline in the cost of LED products will be very similar to the consumer electronics category or previous light bulb technologies," says VP of Merchandising Chris Weber. "LED products are evolving quickly and manufacturers are producing more high-quality products, so we expect LED pricing to decline like Compact Fluorescent products have over the past 5 years. Cost is important but other factors should also be considered before making a switch to LED. Overall appearance and quality of light is equally important," says Weber. "LED is not right for every application yet, so it is important to work with a knowledgeable partner like Bulbs.com to make sure the product you select is the right one."
Bulbs.com has over 150 LED products designed to save customers up to 90% in energy costs.
