WORCESTER, Mass., Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bulbs.com, one of the nation's largest Philips Lighting distributors, will now sell the latest lighting innovation from Philips – the EnduraLED 12 watt A-shape LED light bulb that is designed to replace most standard 60-watt incandescent light bulbs in virtually any application.
"LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting products are flooding the market daily," says Bulbs.com CEO Mike Connors. "At Bulbs.com we sell only reliable, quality-tested products from reputable manufacturers like the EnduraLED line of retrofit light bulbs from Philips. We are recommending these bulbs to our customers because they contain no mercury, produce instant-on, even light and use considerably less energy when compared with other incandescent and halogen bulbs," says Connors. "And this new 12-watt A-shape bulb is a great alternative for common light bulbs you find throughout your home or business."
The Philips 12-watt LED bulb is a finalist for the L-Prize – a US Department of Energy sponsored competition designed to spur development of ultra-efficient solid-state lighting products to replace the common light bulb. Additionally it was selected as the best LED replacement lamp of 2010 in the Lighting for Tomorrow competition.
"With so many different types of LED products in the market, it can be challenging to know which one to choose," says VP of Marketing Bryan Trainor. Bulbs.com has specially trained their Lighting Specialists to help customers evaluate and select the right LED bulbs for their business or home. "LED bulbs are a great alternative to conventional bulbs, but depending on where they will be used you may need a bit of guidance," says Trainor. "Our staff is ready to help any customer make an easy switch to LED and to ensure they get the right light bulb every time."
