Loft insulation

Postby H.Mead » Fri May 19, 2006 11:26 am

Have just read the site's piece on loft insulation which states that insulation should fit under electric cables.
However, there is no mention of bedroom light fittings (spotlights) projecting into the loft void. Are these to be left exposed?

They should be left uncovered - otherwise they could overheat - unless you have first fitted intumescent hoods over them.

You should fit hoods and cover with insulation, otherwise the heat will just escape up passed them.
