Downlight covers from Thermahood fitted using Airtight Sealing Tape can reduce the amount of heat lost through the installation of downlights in ceilings by creating an air-tight seal around the lamp. TIP: use Airtight Sealing Tape when installing your Thermhood cover. Installing downlights can reduce the effectiveness of loft insulation by up to 30% so when trying to meet building regulations, or make a building as thermally efficient as possible, downlights can make all the difference.
You can offset this heat loss with downlight covers as they not only reduce air leakage, they also minimise condensation risk as draughts and air flow are blocked, see Thermahood video on YouTube. Other benefits of Thermahood downlight covers include acoustic insulation, as Thermahood Downlight Covers are air tight (use Airtight Sealing Tape) they contribute to acoustic insulation, with Thermahood downlight covers meeting the requirements for Building Regulations Approved Document E ‘Resistance to the Passage of Sound’.
Thermahood downlight covers are extremely easy to install and don’t necessarily need to be installed by an insulation professional. Simply clear the area around the downlight after turning off the power, making sure to clear the surface of dust and debris. After this affix the downlight cover into place with the wires of the light fitting neatly through the gaps in the downlight cover. You can then opt to fit the insulation in the ceiling back over the downlight cover, or you can use a water-based adhesive or air-tightness tapes to fix the downlight cover to the base.
You can be sure that buildings with downlight covers installed will feel the benefit of minimal heat loss as Thermahood downlight covers are tested in compliance with Building Regulations Doc L1A: Conservation of Fuel and Power.
