Who do we like for these? Need some for ceiling fans with dimmer switches. Home Despot only has the "Feit" brand which on Amazon had very mixed reviews about flickering issues with the Feit branded led's

Fiet is crap. Don't use it.

Are the CFs using a conventional (physically move switch, and has click for off) dimmer or remote one? So remotes are not obvious, they go in wall switch, but still work like a remote. Reason I ask is dimmers with LEDs on them or other remotes will often bleed electricity through them. This sometimes will not allow bulbs to completely turn off.

These Philips ones seem to work with most dimmers and get warmer as you dim them like a standard bulb.

Sometimes you need to try a number of different ones until you get no flicker or hum.

The dimmer switches are hard wired at the wall. They have a on/off switch and a slider to dim.

Good those are going to give you widest selection of lamps you can use. I'd pick up two sets of whatever says it's dimmable and see if you can get it to work. The Phillips ones I linked are my favorite ones I've seen so far. Believe it or not the HD brand ones (EcoSmart) are pretty damn good for as cheap as they are, but I don't think I've seen any A-15, only A-19.

Make sure you know what color you like.

2700/3000 = standard incandescent color

5000 = Daylight (blue to my eyes, I can't stand them)

There is a nutrition label on all bulbs now that will show color spectrum.

EcoSmart does make an A-15
