I like the 4" cans than the 6". But the trim and bulbs for 4" are so friggin expensive. Looking for a good deal on trim/led bulbs/kits to go in 32 of these 4" cans I installed.

Thanks OP! In for 3 cases! ($45.82 at our local store)

There are 2 different kinds of Utilitech 4" cans in the same package/Lowes item #. The last time I bought them, they were the exact same as the Halo's sold for $20 at Lowes/Home Depot/Menards.

Great deal!

BTW... fill these with the Home Depot EcoSmart 4" LED trims. Smilie

For Trims take a look at USA Light.

I bought 45 5" cans from them just recently. The quality was much better than the Halos at Lowes. Free shipping over $100.

Great suggestion, and I agree. Prior to installing the LEDs, I had Halo (or Juno?) trims, When I went to remove them, many of the trim clips broke rendering them useless.

Nice. thank you. Can you suggest what dimmable lights can I get? LEDs are expensive and I want to wait at least until thanksgiving or few more months to see if the price comes down. There is another deal posted for the HD Ecosmart 6" LEDs (CREE) which are $25 for California folks. Wish I could get those for that price here. 4" EcoSmart are like $40 a piece. Need 15 6" for basement and 34 4".
I read about some flickering problems for LEDs and problems with some dimmer switches. Dimmable CFLs a cheaper option? Do those dimmable switches cost less?

Nice find, I could never figure out why it costs twice as much for a 4" versus the 6" can. I guess they can gouge the people who can't squeeze in the 6"...

I haven't found any deals for dimmable led / cfl bulbs. I'm planning to use par30 halogens. For the dimmer switch I am using this Insteon dimmer [smarthome.com]. I'm using the ELK M1 gold with the Insteon Interface for my home security / automation.

To combat the higher energy use I plan is to use the room's motion sensor to determine if the room is occupied and then dim the lights after a couple minutes of no motion detection and then turn them off completely a couple minutes later.

When prices of LED spots with >1k lumens comes down to under $5 a bulb then I'll convert. Till then I'll just use halogens in my dimmers and CFLs in non dimmable fixtures.
