Insulate unheated, unfinished basement ceiling?
Another post discussing insulating the crawl space caused me to stop and think about this.
I am in Indiana, (max average lows -10F to -20F.) I just checked the temp at the ceiling in the basement, and it is 58F.
The furnace is down there and the ductwork is insulated. All of the floors on the first (and only) floor are carpeted.
Do you think it would be cost effective to insulate the basement ceilings to save heat. I can see where it would be advantageous to not have them insulated in the summer time when it is necessary to run the air conditioning.
What are your thoughts?
