What about using XPS foam under the footing in a Shallow Frost-Protected Foundation system?
I’m building a new building that will have radiant floor heat from a boiler. Using a type of foam insulated cement wall — foam is just on the outside. I’m using s shallow frost-protected foundation and wonder about using XPS foam under the footings to stop the thermal bridge that is there.
Any thoughts anyone?
