Should we insulate our basement walls
We’re building a house in zone 3 with a finished walkout basement with 8” poured concrete walls. Our code requirements are to insulate the ceiling with R19, rim joists and stud walls with R13, and that’s it, no insulation requirement for the poured walls. The walls are 10’ tall and 8’ below grade. Should we insulate them?
