What R value do I need over slab in westchester county, NY
Hi trying to calculate the minimum amount of insulation I would need on my basement slab to prevent mold growth. I’m in Westchester County, NY. I’m using eps foam on top of slab with 5/8 interlocking carpet squares on top of eps. I’m using this model: https://www.greatmats.com/products/interlocking-carpet.php
1. Does the 5/8 carpet squares have some insulation values that would be part of total r value for the floor?
2. Do I need a substrate between eps and carpet squares?
3. Can this become a mold sandwich?
Looking for minimum thickness, thanks for your help.
