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

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

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...

If any ads are present below my answer or words underlined/colored, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed/linked to, they are there without my consent.
