One of the largest opportunities for upgrading building performance is hiding in ceilings around the globe: Metal ceiling fixtures such as Air-tight IC-Rated Can-Lights & bathroom fans which penetrate into the attic are compromising building performance, health, comfort & safety.

Look up! If there are lights in the ceiling above you then that building needs CanCoverIt

 

Can-Lights & bathroom fans which penetrate into the attic are compromising building performance, health, comfort & safety.

Air-tight IC-Rated Can-Lights were once considered a solution but in fact they create new even worse problems. 

 

Radiant Energy Through Air-Tight IC-Rated Can-Lights:

Radiant Energy Through Air-Tight IC-Rated Can-Lights:

Observed problems caused by metal ceiling penetrations:

  • Radiant hot and cold spots in the ceiling resulting in extreme energy loss.
  • A/C and Heater must cycle on and off constantly to battle radiant energy
  • Inconsistent uncomfortable room temperature and air drafts
  • Moisture and condensation build up leading to mold growth
  • Water stains on the ceiling around new Insulation Contact (IC)-fixtures
  • Water dripping from new fixtures with LED inserts
  • Ice crystals forming on the new IC-fixtures
  • Light bulbs overheating, flickering and even shutting off
  • LED light bulb performance problems, premature failure

 

The core problem: metal fixtures conduct the volatile attic environment into the inside space.

 

Attempts such as airtight fixtures, insulation contact fixtures, cardboard/drywall boxes have all failed to solve the core problem, and in fact have created larger unintended problems!

To solve the core problem every single fixture must be isolated from the attic environment.

 

It cannot be solved at the fixture level, the fixture itself must be isolated.

 

Effectively isolating the fixture requires more than just stopping airflow! Because metal are conductive, attract condensation and leak radiant energy.

 
 

Humans feel airflow, but we don't see in infrared, so the more dramatic thermal problems remained hidden.

 

CanCoverIt™ solves the core problem, which then eliminates all observed problems.

 

Only CanCoverIt™ has the required geometry, radiant barrier and non-conductive core to effectively isolate the fixture from the attic and bring it safely inside the conditioned interior air.

 
CanCoverIt eliminates thermal transfer. Fire resistant, mold resistant, stops air and water. Creates optimal environment for light bulb performance and longevity.

Without CanCoverIt™

With CanCoverIt™

Fixture connects outside attic space with inside conditioned air space

Isolates the connection between the attic and inside

Air leaks causing uncomfortable drafts, inconsistent room temperature and wasted energy

Eliminates drafts - Stops air leakage

Extreme hot attic radiates through and turns every ceiling fixture into a radiant heater

Eliminates radiant hot spots in ceiling

Extreme cold attic radiates through turns every ceiling fixture into radiant cooler

Eliminates radiant cold spots in ceiling

Safety Risk- Metal fixture cannot function as an effective heat sink and light bulb heat is trapped inside

Provides a safe fire retardant air chamber that lets fixtures function as a heat sink to maintain optimum operating temperatures

Light bulbs overheat, flicker, shut off and fail

Light bulb heat safely and effectively diffuses within the CanCoverIt™ conditioned air space

Compromises LED light bulb performance and causes costly premature failure

Provides consistent operating environment to maximize LED bulb life

Dew-point – moisture condenses on fixture causing ice crystals, water stains, dripping water and mold growth

Breaks conductive cycle, eliminates dew-point

Acoustic problems - Sound transfers through fixtures especially when located under hard surface floors

Air volume around fixture & insulation controls sound transfer

In very hot and cold weather A/C and Heater must cycle on and off constantly to battle radiant energy, resulting in extreme energy loss.

Brings fixtures inside conditioned air, stops conduction, reduced heating/cooling system cycles by over half

Compromises overall attic R-value, regardless of insulation thickness

Optimizes attic R-value, allows insulation to work effectively

Right On Time To Head Off Crisis

 

The inefficiencies of 100's of millions of metal fixtures leaking energy constantly are all combining to create a massive problem:

 

Building energy use, from homes to commercial, is a growing crisis.

 

In just the US alone buildings already use 39% of all national energy produced and emit over 2,236,000 metric tons of CO2 per year.

Three-quarters of all homes in the United States have air conditioners. Air conditioners use about 6% of all the electricity produced in the United States, at an annual cost of about $29 billion to homeowners. As a result, roughly 117 million metric tons of carbon dioxide are released into the air each year. - https://energy.gov/energysaver/air-conditioning

This inefficiency gets worse when the weather gets extreme, and extremes are the new norm.

Our big climate problems are actually millions of little problems - fix enough little problems and the big one goes away!

 

CanCoverIt™ can reduce A/C cycles by more than half in almost every building.

Being off is as good as being gone.

This means that 110 million A/C units functionally get reduced to just 50 million units!

By installing CanCoverIt™ on every metal ceiling penetration we can eliminate millions of tons of pollution and save billions of dollars - NOW! Plus, CanCoverIt removes the need for flex alert behavior changes - let's improve the structure, not try to change your life!

And CanCoverIt™ improves the operating efficiency of fixtures too – protect LED bulbs, fans and speakers with CanCoverIt and save big on heating/cooling bills while reducing your carbon footprint dramatically!

 

Weather the extremes in comfort.

 

CanCoverIt™ is at its best when weather is at its worst.

CanCoverIt™ fixes the core problem of radiant energy leaks that are currently plaguing all buildings.

 

CanCoverIt™ improves overall building R-Value.

CanCoverIt™ is the keystone of every building’s insulation.

CanCoverIt™ is so fast, easy and affordable that now solving the building energy waste challenge is as simple as success of high-efficiency lightbulbs and further reduce building energy usage.

Contractors & Pros Love CanCoverIt™

 

“Thank you for producing CanCoverIt, everyone in our organization loves the product. Our sales team loves it because it shows well to homeowners and helps them sell jobs.  Our installers love it because it helps them complete their work faster, and I love it because I now have confidence that my team is using the right product to safely cover can lights in the home.”  Donna Prince, Tidewater Insulation (Virginia Beach, VA)

“After years of searching, I finally found a fast, safe, easy to install can light cover designed to cover all can lights” Dan Ignosci, Comfort Advisors (Ladera Ranch, CA)

"Armed with a simply utility knife, it took me about 20 minutes to cover 4 lights... an Amazing product and so simple to install that anyone who can properly use a ladder and the business end of a utility knife can do it... especially with the helpful instructional video provided on your website!” Chad Sires - Denver, CO (Real Estate Appraiser)

 

 

Homeowners Love It Too!

 

“Love your product, thanks for making a simple affordable project for saving energy any homeowner can do. Now I can afford a great warm tropical vacation.” Kris Chernik - Palmer, AK

"No other product addressed my concerns as well as CanCoverIt.  All told, I used 21 covers to cover 17 can lights and 4 speakers.  It was very easy.” Garrick Gallagher - Phoenix, AZ

"The [CanCoverIt™ units] have been working as advertised, we noticed a difference as soon as they were put in, but also did a series of other improvements, radiant barrier in the attic reduced overall attic temp about 10 degree's which helped support the can covers.  With both changes the house temperature was cooler and stayed cooler throughout the day." Trevor Sim - Hawaii
