Thermal mass question
I'm wondering how much I'll decrease the effectiveness of a 4" slab/ thermal mass by laying a thick underlayment (looks like a yoga mat) over the cement floor and installing a floating 5/16" engineered wood floor over that.
The 4" cement slab is insulated on all 5 sides with 4" of extruded polystyrene foam board.
I've been living in the home while I'm finishing it and I love how its working during these cold snaps.
So, my question is, if I put this floor & underlayment down, will I be decreasing the thermal mass's effectiveness by 30%, 40%, 50% or more? Is there a way to find out?
