Cold weather crawl space insulation
First time home owner- I am planning on installing insulation into a crawl space in an older home in the 5-A Western NY area. It has 3 vented access points to the outside, I placed a thick vapor barrier down and around pillars. There's no heat source except currently poor insulated pipes from the hot water furnace. (soon to be fully insulated). There's no insulation at all going up to the floor currently.
I understand I'd need R-30 or higher but confused on fiberglass, Mineral wool, a layer of hard insulation first or faced or un-faced insulation. Also if I should plan on closing the vented access points. There's no insulation on the walls currently, and i was thinking this would not be necessary due to insulating the floors.
