Should I insulate the ceiling of my basement?
Hi - Thanks in advance for helping!
I live in a 1906 stone wall foundation home, in NY state. My 1st floor hardwood is pretty cold, and we are thinking about putting some insulation in the basement. I had one "expert" tell me not to insulate the ceiling because it would result in too cold of a basement.
Frankly, I would rather have a cold basement than a cold first floor. Will the basement really get too cold?
Please let me know if there are any strong concerns with this insulation approach!
