Bulbs.com to Offer New Energy-Efficient Philips EcoVantage A19 Lamps That Replace Standard Incandescent Bulbs
WORCESTER, Mass., June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Bulbs.com, one of the largest online distributors of replacement lighting, will now sell a full line of A-Style halogen incandescent light bulbs from Philips. These bulbs are designed to meet the new efficiency standards mandated by the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) that takes effect in January 2012, which will effectively end the production of most traditional 100, 75, 60 and 40 watt incandescent bulbs by 2014
“The often-called ‘incandescent ban’ is creating a great deal of confusion, and in some cases panic, among residential and commercial consumers. We want to assure our customers that while they can still use any incandescent bulbs they already have, when it is time to replace them there are other affordable, energy-efficient options that will also have the same aesthetic and quality of light that they’re accustomed to,” says Bulbs.com CEO Mike Connors.
The new Philips EcoVantage line of A19 lamps are the same shape and size of the bulbs they replace. They also:
- Reduce energy by at least 28%
- Last between 1000 and 1200 hours
- Are fully dimmable
- Will work with existing lighting fixtures
- Contain no mercury
- Are available in natural white, soft white, and clear finishes
“Many of our customer have questions about their replacement options, so our Lighting Specialists are trained to help them through the process and choose the right bulb from many of these high-quality products that are now available at Bulbs.com,” says Connors.
In addition to the Philips EcoVantage line, Bulbs.com has other EISA-compliant products including hundreds of Compact Fluorescent light bulbs and over 150 LED products designed to save customers up to 90% in energy costs.
