My house is 100 yrs old, wood siding. I had the joists stuffed with rolls of insulation and styrofoam between the wood frames (don't know right name. The floor of laundry room/basement ceiling is partially filled with batting and some with the styrofoam sheets 1.5 thick and part of ceiling with both batting and sheet. All the walls are below ground and I live in the n/w corner of Iowa. The kitchen and laundry above basement are still cold barely 60, you can feel the cold air at the bottom of the back stairs that go up to the second floor. Which is above the staircase that goes down to the basement. I hope this has answered your questions. Thanks TC
