We were originally looking at recessed 4-in LEDs lighting across the cathedral ceiling (single story cottage in Quebec with insulated R60 roof), but now concerned that all the holes for the lights in the ceiling could lead to venting and loss of heat. Is this the case? Is there a way to mitigate venting and loss of heat through the ceiling? Is there otherwise a better alternative for lighting on cathedral ceiling in single story cottage to minimize heat loss?
