Hi! :)

I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions. We've been trying to switch to the new lightbulbs - be it lcd or CFL - but are having an extremely hard time as we only have recessed lighting in the house and 98% of them are dimmers.

Hi Erin! We tried a dimmable CFL a few years ago and had the same results. We ended up replacing the switch with a regular flip switch. Not an option for everyone, I know, so it's frustrating that they don't work as they should.

I'll ask around and see if anyone has suggestions for you.

Erin, A friend suggested Philips Halogena Dimmables. She uses them and hasn't noticed any issues. Hope that helps! (And bring the other one back for a refund!!)
