I live in a 2 story condo which is built on a slab.(no basement) My 1st floor is always significantly colder than the 2nd floor. Would insulating between the 1st floor and 2nd help to control the drastic temperature difference? What product would

you recommend if you think this would help. Any other info would be appreciated.


From: AT Carroll

i think you should put some insulation in the 1st floor. this will help trap the heat to make your 1st floor room warmer. fiberglass is a good option.
