Answer

An air tight can is not 100% airtight. These housings are designed in such a way that in order to remove the heat generated inside the housing, there will be a gap. Covering the gap with Aluminum or any other tape would overheat the housing.

Does it get hot and is it suitable for ceiling that's under a sunroom?

not with led bulbs. yes as long as it cannot get wet. it would need a deflecting sheild over it to protect from water if it is under a deck that water will run thru.

The instructions just indicate that the rubber gasket provided forms a barrier that conforms to restricted air flow regulations. I assume it is simply the pressure between the gasket and drywall that creates a seal. I've never tested in any way to measure the airflow based on my installation... Hope this helps.

Air-tightness does not truly exist. Yes, there is a gasket, yet there are large gaps that will a...

Whatever you choose should be thermally safe. I used very thin HVAC tape, Mylar based, I think, to close easily accessible holes. That stuff is designed for HVAC temperatures, which I expect is good enough for this application. No comment on code compliance. Also when the product claims to be air tight, it is within a certain spec, so not surprising that some people see opportunities for improvement.

Because my carpenter cut the ceiling opening too big I need a white trim (LED retrofit) with a 5 1/2 to 6” inch trim.

Asked by Terry October 8, 2019

Answer

No, we do not have an oversize trim for this housing.

6 inch cans are so common and can accommodate so many lighting options. These cat fixtures are the most versitile with many mounting options and adjustability. Also the wire connections are very convenient and well thought out. At less then $10 a fixture for the 6 packs they are very affordable.

I bought this 6-pack case in October 2016. I'm a DIYer and purchased these to use during a pretty extensive bathroom renovation, installed in an attic above the master batch. While I've had experience with recessed lights in the past, these are particularly great and simple to use. The quick connect electrical connections were particularly awesome (I uploaded a picture showing it as it comes with the product). Simply snap the wire connections into place and BAM, onto the next one. I definitely prefer these connections to having to use wire nuts, which I often have to do with other fixtures because they come with just filament wire to connect to your load wires. The junction box attached to the housing has two punchouts on either side and three on top, which gives you plenty of options for running wiring. I happened to be running 12-gauge wire in my project, and they were plenty wide to accommodate. Since this housing was being put into my attic, I needed it to be IC-rated to enable it to directly touch insulation, and this fit the bill nicely. They're also "air-tite," which I believe just refers to the small foam seal that surrounds the light opening to stop air movement between non-insulated spaces and your living space (yay for energy efficiency!). Also, according to specifications, the light is suitable for use in damp locations, such as over showers or in your bathroom, but that's also largely dependent upon what kind of light fixture you install into the housing. I installed these on a 20-amp circuit using 12-gauge wire and a dimmer switch. The dimmer operates them perfectly. Installation is pretty straightforward--cut a circle in your drywall slightly larger then the opening of the light, then stretch out the bar hangers flush with your joists and nail them into place. I encountered some issue with the nails supplied in the bar hangers where a lot of them would bend (I swear I know how to use a hammer properly!), but they still sit in place just fine and there are other pre-made holes in the bar hangers that you could use other nails/screws if you're worried about it. All-in-all, I consider this a definitive buy. IC-rating, air-tight housing, and easy installation is the name of the game. A word of caution if you're remodeling, however, is to check how much space you have to install them in before buying (they take up quite a bit of space).
