Can I cover fire rated ceiling down-lights with loft insulation?

It is important to assess the energy efficiency of your home, and the best way to make the most of it, is to take measures to insulate your home correctly.

Getting the right amount of insulation in your loft space is the first step to saving energy, which will ultimately save you money on your fuel bills. The government now recommend 270mm+ of loft insulation. This may cause a problem in some lofts that have down-lights fitted in the ceiling.

You cannot cover these down-lights, even if they are fire rated. All electrical lighting, especially in a loft, requires some form of ventilation. So it's important that these lights are not covered with insulation, unless a vented box has been fitted over the light to allow air circulation.
