That's interesting for me. I've got about 12 spots running from one double-dimmer (with 12 on one side and 3 on the other) so it was constantly blowing the light switch. I've reduced the wattage (or whatever unit they're in) in all the 12 bulbs, so the light switch no longer blows up, but the amount of light is shite.
Would LEDs improve the amount of light whilst using less power so not damaging the switch???
Are these LED bad-boys more expensive than the Halogen equivalent (think I know the answer that's coming!!!).
Sorry, a little off-topic...
