Can lighting insulation covers?
Also to know is, can Can lights be covered with insulation?
Do not cover the unit with insulation. Keep insulation well away from the sides; three inches is a good amount. If you use batt insulation, you can cut the batts to size, and they will stay in place. Blown insulation can begin to tumble out of place onto the fixture.
Beside above, how do you insulate around IC rated recessed lights?

- Cover the holes on the sides of the canister by stuffing loose fill or batt insulation between the canister and the ceiling joists if it isn't an airtight fixture.
Similarly, can LED recessed lights be covered with insulation?
IC rated means that it's safe to have insulation directly in contact with the light, but it's not synonymous with airtight. If you plan to install recessed lights that are going to protrude in to your attic, make sure they're airtight, IC-rated lights.
