I just installed 6 of the "Air-tite" Halo H5ICAT's in my ceiling via my
attic. My attic has batts of fiberglass insulation w/ vapor barrier
which I cut & peeled back to install the 6 lights.
The Halo website indicates "Housing may be covered with insulation".
I'd like to take the insulation I cut back and put it back on top of,
around, and all over the lights I installed to ensure that any
insulation lost from installing the lights is kept to a minimum.
1. Can I truly 'smother' the lights in the fiberglass insulation with no
fear of fire or anything like that? Or is there a better or safer
alternative balancing insulation with safety?
2. Should I remove the paper vapor barrier since I assume that is NOT
intended to touch the lights?
