insulate behind recessed lighting in sloped ceiling
We are removing the 6″ recessed lights from our sloped ceilings. We have been able to pull the pieces of the old lights through the 6″ hole. The builders didn’t insulate behind the lights so we are looking to fill in. It’s approximately 15″ x 24″. We will then put in an air-tight, ic-rated led and rope caulk the flange to the ceiling to create an air-tight seal. We can stuff fiberglass in the hole ok but were hoping to find mineral wool or something similar to it that is flexible and doesn’t break into chunks.
