Did you replace your dimmers when you replaced the can lights?

There are LED specific dimmers for LED bulbs to help the dimming curve and eliminate flickering when dimming.

What brand LED bulbs are you buying? I am extremely bias but IMO if your not buying Philips LEDs, your not buying the right LED bulbs. Philips has one LED patent that pays them 700K A MONTH!!!! They have an entire department just to make sure all their LED patents are take care of.
