[EnergyPlus_Support] Insulating wooden floor raised 400mm from ground in temperate climates

i have a 12 m x 12 m single storey with wooden floor. This house is located 37.7 degrees south of the equator on the eastern side of a very big land mass. The temperature and wind varies widely, and this location is tooted to have 4 seasons in a day. Its getting expensive to maintain and operate a gas heater with ducts to the 6 compartments of this 54 yr old house. 

The floor is raised 400-500mm above ground level. The house is of brick veneer and the bricks go down at least have a meter into the ground. Dr Li suggested 1 m insulation around the perimeter both horizontally and vertically. Since the air space below the floor is vented to the outdoor air which can go down to 5C in winter months, i doubt this is sufficient to make the occupants not having to wear socks or slippers. 

i am also looking for economical floor insulation for a proposed 6.3m x 3.4 m nanny house separate to the above building. Any better suggestion than looking for cheap underfloor insulation/s?

All the best to everyone, ooi
