Hi

I have MR16 low voltage spotlights. In some rooms we have dimmers and others just standard on/off switches.

All the spotlights have their own individual transformers. Whats the easiest way for me to change them to low energy bulbs?

Thanks

You can buy 12v MR16 LED lamps, they're not particularly good but improving all the time. Not seen dimmable ones though.

Other option is to replace the transformer with a GU10 cap to fit CFL's. You may need to replace the bezels too, some can and some can't be used with these.
