Where can i buy Incandescent or Halogen bulbs?

Solution

Unfortunately the EU decided that after 1st September 2017 manufacturers will no longer be able to make or import Halogen bulbs into the European Market. Previously the EU decided to ban all Incandescent (old style filament) bulbs too, because of inefficiency and too much electricity usage.

 

People are now being forced to use LED low energy alternatives.

 

You must be cautious with your purchase choice, since most LED bulbs are not dimmable and the dimmable versions are not compatible with old wall dimmer units.
