Thanks - yeah, that's what the guy suggested - just put in a normal on/off switch and do away with the dimming (which I don't need so am happy with that) - the cost was as you say, basically nothing. So do you think replacing the consumer unit would solve my problems or is it just a way for the guy to charge me a whole load of money for a job he can do in a day (I am trying not to be cynical about this but we have been ripped off right left and center since we moved into this disaster of a house)?

Sorry, I thought they were asking if they were those long strip bulbs, which I took to mean florescent lights. The switch to be replaced does not control any energy saving bulbs. Now the entire house has bulbs that are not energy saving.
