crawl space insulation

I need to insulate a vented crawl space but I keep getting different opinions about whether to use faced or unfaced insulation between joist. I thought unfaced since it's ventilated. I'm in central NJ. Thanks

crawl space insulation

I'd be using faced with the barrier toward the sub floor.

crawl space insulation

If in Zone 4, not required, IF solid wood subfloor and in Zone 5, use faced towards heated area. IF plywood/OSB, not required as they have they same vapor perms as faced...http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...commendations/
