Recessed Lights and Blown-In Cellulose
I plan on using Airtight Self-Gasketing LED downlights in my drywall ceiling, and will have blown in cellulose on top of them.
When it comes time to replace the downlights, when I pull the light down, will the cellulose fall down from the hole in the drywall? Or will the cellulose somewhat settle/clump together and keep its form, and I slip in the new LED puck light?
Or do I need to install some sort of cover (cardboard box taped and sealed around the edges) on top of the puck light?
if anyone has any recommendations for 4” airtight LED down lights 2700-3000k that would be great, so many options out there.
Edit – Does anyone have experience with blower doors or independent testing with these supposed airtight gasketed puck lights? They seem a little too good to be true from an air sealing standpoint.
