pot lights and insulation question
i have an insulation question...my new cieling will be cathedral with spray foam insulation..my general has told me i need to use foam to meet code to get the best R value (ill agree with that cause i like foam anyway)..
next he say i need air flow between the roof and the foam for moisture reasons (ill agree cause i dont know any different and it sounds good)
nes the wife wants (and she usually gets) some pot lights in this ceiling...here is where i am concerned (again because i dont know any better) he has installed some styrofoam thing a mcgiggars in the cieling for air flow (you can see them in the photo attached) but the pot lights go tight to them..will this pass code with foam around them ..and .. will the heat loss be too much to live with as there will be virtually no or little insulation behind the pot lights
if you took time to read this lengthy post please reply as i am stumped..
