INSULATING HIGH HAT LIGHTS 


QUESTION FROM NEIL FROM GARDEN CITY, NY:

In my family room it gets cold. I have 8 high hat fixtures that when it gets cold I can feel a cold draft blowing out around from around the bulb. Is there a product that I can get that will stop the draft. I cannot put in insulation without ripping out sheetrock. Looking for a product that I can put at base of bulb to block draft. thanks


ANSWER FROM THE INSULATION DOCTOR:

Hello Neil,
 
There is not a product made that I am aware of that is for that use.  I have seen where people have taken pieces of blanket insulation with no backing (paper or foil) and placed the fiberglass above the bulb and inside the housing unit itself, being careful not to get the insulation inside the socket.
 
Hope this helps.
