    Do dimmable halogen lights use less electric when dimmed ?

    Noticed they're 230watts !

    I think the 230 will be referring to volts

    As above I think the 230 will be volts. Most halogens are around 50/60 watts unless it's an outside floodlight or something.

    Nope
    Use same amount of electricity

    Not reslly. Why not get yourself some LEDs - money saving all round...

    If you have halogen lights in your internal home lighting I would swap them for dimmable led lights. Depending on bulb type i.e. G4, G9, GU10 they use a lot of power and produce a lot of heat. I've binned two GU10 spots where the clamp between the lamp holder and metal bracket had gone brittle due to heat.

    One example is the new lamp I got in the front room that used 5x28W Halogen bulbs @ 140Watts, kinda smelled like melting plastic when I had them on I swapped these for 5x6W LED bulbs @ 30Watts. Massive power saving and no issue melting.

    Yes they do - above's taking dapee!

    Yours are likely to be \bout 50watt /230V and go as low as 10watts when dimmed

    You'll need to ensure any LEDs are compatible with your existing dimming system. Unfortunately it isn't a once size fits all with LED and dimming.

    True, I didn't take into account on how old ops lighting system was. I would probably swap to something like this
