Introducing Philips DIMMABLE Mini Deco Twister Light Bulbs

We want to introduce to our customers a new product for Philips that we are offering our customers. It is a DIMMABLE Compact Fluorescent light bulb! Now, if you haven't purchase compact fluorescent light bulbs before, you may be scratching your head. Most high quality compact fluorescent light bulbs are not dimmable. It is a special technology and because of cost is not implemented into all cfl light bulbs.

The new dimmable bulbs from Philips are a familiar bulb style. They come in a mini deco twister and then just a deco twister for the higher wattage. Wattages available are a 15 watt = to 60 watt A19; a 20 watt = to 75 watt A19 and a 32 watt = to 125 Watt A19.

Take a look at these Philips dimmable compact fluorescent bulbs and try them in your own home.

Looking for Philips Master Dimmable LED

We have gotten several calls lately about the highly publicized Philips Master Dimmable LED collection of light bulbs.

If you are in the US, you are as of right now out of luck. This collection is a group of dimmable led products made for the European market. Don't despair though. They are coming. When ever Philips creates a product for the European market, it's only a matter of time before it's available here in the states.

Many European bulbs can be imported and used here but unfortunately, we have not found anyone importing LEDs. If you have one certainly let us know. Otherwise, the current Philips LED collection is a great group of products. Take a look. They just aren't dimmable yet.

How do you install and remove a GU10 Twistline Light Bulb?

These Philips Twistline light bulbs have a GU10 base. To light these bulbs it only takes the proper contact just like a bulb you twist in. To remove burnt out bulbs, simply push in and twist the bulb counter clockwise. Then to install the replacement, push the bulb in and twist clockwise.

I'm looking for an MR16 light bulb with a colored lense.

We every so often will get a call from a customer asking if certain light bulbs come with colored lenses.

In the main line of Philips the only bulbs that have colored lenses are certain kinds of incandescents and honestly, that number seems to be decreasing. But as far as MR16s and other halogens are concerned, there are no color options beyond clear and frosted. The same goes for CFL bulbs and LED.

So, if you are needing a colored bulb, be sure and take a look at the incandescent offerings. But there aren't any with a base like the MR16.....unfortunately.

Looking for Master LED Philips Light Bulbs?

We have had several customers to call looking for the Philips Master LED Dimmable light bulbs.

Although fast and quick strides are being made in the technology of LED light bulbs that are available to us in the states, the LED bulbs that we can use is not dimmable. The Master collection made by Philips is dimmable but is only available for purchase in Europe. We don't even know of anyone who is importing them.

And just in case you aren't aware, Philips is a leader in LED technology. All their major competitors are way behind them and will continue to play catch up.
