How to air seal garage ceiling lighting
Is there a good, air tight ceiling receptacle or air sealing method for regular round j-boxes in a ceiling, or would it be best to do something else?
I will have conditioned space above the garage and in a hurry to prep for sheetrock I specified regular ceiling j-boxes for ceiling light receptacles.
I’m no longer in a hurry to sheetrock and everything is still open, so I’m reconsidering this. I thought there would be some “air tight” ceiling receptacles but so far I haven’t found any. I figured I would be caulking and foaming each of these as my air sealing detail.
There’s 12 receptacles all wired up up there, but nows the time for me to change it if I should.
