loww wattage dimmer

Posted by shbussey on September 5th, 2000 02:53 PM

We are installing track lights w/ 50w halogen bulbs (6 total) and want to put them on a dimmer
The bulb package says we "must" use a "low wattage dimmer". Such a thing turns out to be expensive 50-75$ and not so easy to find
--not in stock at homedepot/lowes. Asking people at these places gave us mixed reviews--one person said it doesn't matter, another said we could start a fire.
Does anyone know the real story on dimming halogen? does it matter where the dimmer/fixture is on the circuit?
Thanks, Susan
