I bought a house that someone (some idiot) added a 200 sq ft room onto,
and did not insulate the ceiling.
I bought some R25 today to roll out and it says "CAUTION;Insulation must
be kept three inches away from recessed lighting fixtures unless they
are marked "I.C." (insulated ceiling) - designed for direct insulation
contact. Insulation placed over unrated fixtures may cause overheating
and start a fire.
What exactly are they talking about?
Every room in my house has ( including the one added on) has the plain
ole metal conduit boxes with ceiling fans attached.
This isn't a fire hazed, is it? Meaning that ALL of my "fixtures" have
insulation over them from when the house was built.
The house was built in 84, Florida.
