Philips is a brand name that's synonymous with quality lighting. Founded in 1891 in the Netherlands, Philips quickly became the largest producer of light bulbs in the world.
Today, Philips continues to innovate by leading the way in digital lighting technologies. The company says on its website, "We are enhancing people's lives with light by delivering innovative and energy efficient solutions to consumers and professional customers, every day, everywhere."
Of course, one can't talk about energy efficient lighting solutions without talking about LEDs (light-emitting diodes).
LEDs emit more lumens per watt than incandescent light bulbs, and the size and shape of the LED light fixture doesn't affect its efficiency. In addition to energy efficiency, there are many other reasons to make the switch to LEDs, including the fact that well-made LEDs are more durable, longer lasting, and provide more versatility (not to mention northeast energy supplier Eversource offers incentives and rebates to encourage the use of LEDs). Wolfers has invested in lighting labs in both of our showrooms that cater to educating consumers on LEDs: how they work, how they look, and what your options are.
That said, one "con" we sometimes hear from people is price. Traditionally, LEDs have been more expensive than other bulbs, but as LEDs become more commonplace, the price point goes down significantly. In fact, you can find some great values on LED bulbs at Wolfers, which brings us back to the opening of this article regarding Philips.
Philips' LED bulb technology now delivers warm, dimmable light in a traditional size and new SlimStyle sizes. Designed for table and floor lamps, wall sconces, pendant lighting, and recessed ceiling fixtures, the Philips' LEDs pictured below provide energy efficiency and quality light. And the best part is that you can get these quality ENERGY STAR-compliant LED bulbs for an affordable price.
Philips LED SlimStyle A19. These bulbs are the same size as traditional A19s but in an innovative slim design ideal for table, pendant, and sconce fixtures. This 10.5W bulb can replace a 60W incandescent and delivers quality light all-around. Also available in 7W.
Philips LED Warm Glow BR 30. If you're looking to create a warm, inviting atmosphere, you can't go wrong with these dimmable LEDs. As you dim the light, the color temperature is red uced which creates a warm glow similar to a candle.
