I am planning on putting in 4 additional recessed lights in my family room (there are two existing that are pointing at my fireplace). I have a two questions:
1) Above the family room is my attic, which is easily accessible. Can I buy the new construction kind, or should I get the remodel ones? The new construction ones seem to be a lot sturdier looking and maybe easier to install? (I just have to move the installation out of the way above, install it, and then put the insulation back?) Is it that easy?
2) How do the "airtite" housings seal against the drywall ceiling? I looked at a couple of these at Home Depot, and I saw that all the openings in the top and side of the housing are plugged, but there was no seal or gasket on the bottom to seal around the hole that is cut in the drywall. It appeared that the metal base just sits on the drywall. I checked online and Halo's website says they are supposed to have a stick on gasket on the bottom. Maybe the ones at Home Depot were missing this piece?
Thanks in advance, Ted in MI
