Insulating Concrete Columns
I am building an ICF house where the ground floor will be slab on grade with hydronic radiant heat. I will put rigid foam insulation under the slab as recommended but there are a couple concrete columns on footings (interior to the house) that I need to deal with. I am planning on having insulation between the slab and the column footings but not sure what to do with the column itself. Do I wrap the whole column in foam board insulation all the way down to the footing and then put a cover over the insulation (sheetrock, cement board etc.)? I haven’t been able to find much information on this subject. Thank you for your time.
