Dimmable Energy Saving Bulbs

Found 17th Jan 2011
I would like to install some energy saving bulbs around the house, however some are on dimmer switches.
My questions are 1) Can I use normal energy saving bulbs with a dimmer?
and 2) If so where is good to buy them quite cheaply?

Looking for all kinds of bulbs, standard and GU10.

Appreciate your comments!

I am also after some reasonably priced dimmable energy saving bulbs also.

You cannot use the fluorescent type energy saving bulbs unless it is labelled as dimmable, which I can only find for around £15.00 each!

You can use the halogen type on a dimmer, but these only save approx 50% electricity.

Let's hope someone knows of a cheap supplier!
