In terms of thermal efficiency, the most effective location for the vertical foundation insulation is on the exterior of the foundation wall. , et al, 1988). It should be noted that the amount of vertical perimeter insulation is dependent on the amount of floor or sub-slab insulation specified to meet or exceed minimum energy code requirements or for improved comfort and floor slab surface temperatures at the perimeter of the building.
