I am a homeowner and not a member of your organization. I hope that you will review my question.
We had an “energy efficient” house built many years ago, with 6-inch walls and extra installation. Unfortunately, the approximate 25 recessed 6-inch light fixtures we had installed are the type that cannot have installation within 3 inches of the can, so these fixtures provided an area for energy loss. There is also high energy use when the floodlight bulbs are turned on (not sure the wattage).
I have seen some LED retrofit units (e.g. those by CREE) that just screw into the existing bulb receptacle. The LED lights are substantially cooler than the 150 watt incandescent floodlights. If I converted the lights to the LED unit, could I install insulation to touch / cover the can. The big question is… Would doing that meet inspector approval?
Thanks for considering my question.
