Should I have insulated this crawlspace?
Last year I read about the benefits of insulating an enclosed (concrete walls and floor) crawlspace beneath the main portion of my ranch-style home. I thought it should keep the house warmer. However, I now have a toasty basement. Am I just trapping good heat in the basement, or is this actually keeping the floors warmer in the house? It doesn't seem to.
After asking for suggestions I placed the insulation with the paper up towards the floor and the open side down.
