If you have a home with recessed light fixtures –those lightbulbs in the ceiling – and bathroom fans, you need CanCoverIt.
Those fixtures are metal, so even insulation covering them cannot stop their intense conduction. So when the attic is hot, those can-lights and bathroom fans are bringing heat in directly, when the attic is cold that cold is infiltrating through the fixtures. Even if you have used air-sealed IC rated can-lights, you still have this problem. In fact, with air-sealed can-lights homeowners often have deeper problems show up when they’re most inconvenient: from moisture build-up to lightbulb failure.
CanCoverIt can eliminate drafts that persisted even after air-sealing work was done. Many drafts in your home are caused by the thermal transfer of metal fixtures moving the air inside your home around, not necessarily outside air coming in.
You need to protect your metal ceiling fixtures from the wild temperature swings of your attic, and the fastest, easiest, most effective way to do so is with CanCoverIt. It’s so easy that you can do it yourself, provided you can get up into the attic. If you don’t want to crawl around, hire a local contractor and get them to install CanCoverIt. A CanCoverIt and blown insulation upgrade will take just one afternoon.
Make sure to demand any installer use CanCoverIt. There are other recessed light covers on the market, but they all fail in one dimension or another. The ones that look like flower pots still let moisture, air and thermal energy through; all they do is keep insulation off of the fixture. The flower pots cannot and do not solve the core problem of ceiling fixtures, they are a waste of your time and money.
Also watch out for cardboard boxes, even ones that say they are chemically ‘treated.’ These will sag over time under the weight of insulation, and still pose a greater fire risk due to their main material being cardboard. Moreover, cardboard boxes, even chemically treated ones, do not have the correct insulation properties to actually solve any problems. They too are just to keep insulation away from the fixture, and they will fail that job over the course of time.
You need to demand that only CanCoverIt goes up in your attic.
Only CanCoverIt has the correct combination of insulation and radiant barrier to protect your interior home from all weather conditions, moisture buildup, mold and pests.

You deserve a comfortable and efficient home, and you can get it in just one afternoon with CanCoverIt.
