Furnace Room Insulation


Is it okay to put rigid foam insulation in the furnace room? Right now the exterior concrete walls are wrapped with a FG blanket and vapour barrier

The room will eventually be closed off with wood frames and firecode drywall.

I'd be using http://www.bing.com/search?q=roxul+i...sp=1&qs=OS&sk=
Instead.
Foam off gasses toxic fumes when heated and can not be left exposed.

Furnace Room Insulation


im using XPS from Owens Corning for the rest of the basement, but i guess the roxul is a good idea for inside the furnace room. but i dont want the vapour barrier and moisture trapping
