I would like to cover recessed lighting with fiberglass insulation but am concerned with fire hazards and building code requirements. What should I do?

I have recessed lights in 2 rooms for a total of 9 lights, some with halogen some with incandescent bulbs. Some have square metal boxes covering them, some do not. What should I do?

You're right to be concerned. Recessed lights that will have insulation around them need to designed with heat resistance in mind since the insulation will prevent heat from the light...
