WORCESTER, Mass., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bulbs.com, one of the largest online distributors of replacement lighting, has launched a new pricing strategy on select LED (Light-Emitting Diode) light bulbs.  This will make energy efficient lighting even more accessible for its customers. Bulbs.com has collaborated closely with several key manufacturers to reduce the price on a selection of its most popular LEDs.  The price reduction will help decrease the upfront cost of switching to energy efficient LED lighting.

The energy efficient LEDs include:

Customers can use the Bulbs.com energy calculator  or call one of its Certified Lighting Specialists 1.888.455.2800 to estimate specific energy savings from transitioning to LED technology. 

Advancements in LED technology have driven prices down and the trend is continuing with big box retailers like Walmart announcing its own line of lower cost LEDS.  Bulbs.com is lowering its pricing on LEDs to make energy efficient lighting even more affordable to its customers. However the real value goes beyond price point.  Bulbs.com Certified Lighting Specialists undergo a rigorous training curriculum instructed by the leading authorities in the lighting industry.  Many of its Certified Lighting Specialists have more than 10 years of commercial lighting experience. That's why over 125,000 businesses have come to rely on Bulbs.com.  The personalized expertise of its Certified Lighting Specialists is what differentiates Bulbs.com from big box retailers. 

Light bulb purchasing decisions have become more complicated with all the changes in lighting technology.  Energy-efficient LEDs use up to 85 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs and last more than 25 times longer. Customers are now making light bulb purchase decisions that will last 5-10 years before they need to replace these bulbs.  It's more important than ever for customers to choose the right light bulb solution for their business application.  Customers have to consider light appearance, color temperature and color rendering for their work task or retail environment.  They also have to consider dimming specifications and compatibility, heat dissipation, surface brightness, glare, daylight illumination patterns, ballast requirements and flickering reduction.  "Bulbs.com simplifies the light bulb purchasing process and removes any uncertainty to provide customers with the confidence that they will make the right lighting decision every time," says Mike Connors, CEO of Bulbs.com. 

During the last year Bulbs.com has intensified its efforts to draw upon customer feedback in order to improve its shopping experience.  Earlier this fall it released its new BulbFinder tool that has greatly improved how consumers shop for light bulbs.  Connors mentioned a new purchase program developed for Bulbs.com commercial customers that will eliminate any risk of making the wrong light bulb selection even for the most complicated lighting application.  "The success of our business is built upon providing our customers with an unsurpassed level of knowledge and personalized expertise.  This drives our desire to innovate and find new ways to make our customer's shopping experience easier," says Connors.
