I could never see the increase in savings after eight inches using the method I used to determine diminishing returns on fuel savings. Maybe there was something wrong in my thinking, but the temperature just stopped going up after eight inches all the way around. This did not include the floor since I could no longer get at it. I do think the savings become marginal compared to the space lost to a bazillion cubic inches of fiber around the furnace, not to mention the difficulty in gathering out of what becomes a tunnel.
