Feeling air in sunroom

1265 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  NNJ
Recently moved Into my new dream home. Unfortunately the original builders have went bankrupt and I am now dealing with poor workmanship. In the sunroom there are six windows which are sealed fairly tight. Upon using a lighter to check for air there was normal movement in the flame. When I did the same thing against the ceiling where the shallow pan is installed for a future ceiling fan i felt air immediately when I put my hand against it. How do I remediate the problem before removing all of the sheet rock. Thanks in advance

Lack of insulation and air sealing in the area above the ceiling.

Not going to do any good if the rest of it is not insulated.
Around here we have to get an insulation inspection.
Those can lights were suppost to be IC air tight. if you remove the bulb and trim ring there should be a sticker up inside the fixture.
IC is, in contact, meaning it can be covered up with insulation.
You need something like this instead.
