Recessed Lights – Air Sealing

Many older homes that have recessive lighting may not have insulation contact (IC) lights.   As a contractor or homeowner this is one thing that you can check to make sure air leakage is kept to a minimum.  If the recess light is not IC it is recommend you replace the light fixture with one that is IC rated.  Upon replacement you can then place insulation in direct contact with the fixture, helping to minimize the transfer of air.
