Q: What do I do about halogen downlights in my ceiling?
A: If your home is fitted with halogen down-lights, it is best to replace them prior to installing ceiling insulation so that the best possible ceiling coverage can be achieved.  Aside from the fire risk and draught concerns associated with down-lights, LED downlights that are IC4 (IC standing for Insulation Contact) rated can be insulated over the top.  Refer your electrician to Rule of Australian Standard AS:NZ 3000.

A: If you have existing ceiling insulation, rest assured that it can remain in place. You should level out any existing loose-fill insulation, or fill in any gaps in your existing batts, before topping up with our high quality product to ensure the best thermal protection for your home.
