Ressessed lights
 
I want to replace my fluoresent lights in my basement room with ressessed lighting. I have a suspended/drop ceiling and have a few questions:
What type of housing should I get, non-insulated, insulated, sealed, etc and also I am replacing the ceiling tiles which do I installfirst the tile or light
Thanks Barry

Usually there is little or no difference in cost between IC and non-IC rated cans. If there is no innsulation contact for the cans above the ceiling, either type will work. I would suggest installing only the tiles where cans are placed, cut in and wire the cans, finish remaining tiles.
