    how to ditch dimmer switch? 4th Nov 08 at 9:51 AM
    We're in a rented property and there were like 8 dimmer switch around the house, some of it are even GU10 light bulb, which I should imagine will cost me an arm.

    Because dimerable light bulbs are too expansive for us, I'm wondering if it's possible to replace the dimmer switch with normal switch (DIY) so that I can use ECO light bulbs. I know how to change a wall socket, there are just 3 cables to be connected, but I'm not sure if dimmer switch is any different?


    PS, my landlord wouldn't mind me changing them as long as I put the dimmer switch back on when I leave.


    Thanks in advance for any help/reply.
