Insulate storage room in basement


I am finishing my basement and wanted to ask if there is a need/benifit to insulating the storage room from the rest of the basement. The storage room has the furnance and water heater in it and is not heated by the forced air.

So is there any benifit to insulating the storage room? If I do should I use kraft faced with the face facing the finished spaces?

Thanks.

If it has the furnace in it there should be a vent from the main plenem Has you can see in this picture ( never mind the mess LOL)



That will heat/ cool the room. at least it does at my house.

Insulate storage room in basement


my storage room does not have a supply vent, and I dont really want to heat / cool it.

Do I need to?

If I dont should I insulate it off with a thermal barrier?
