Re: Will my pipes freeze after adding insulation?
A bit of confusion ------- the ground temperature would depend on how deep the frost line is for your area.

Based on your temperatures if it gets any colder then you may have issues.
Although, if the crawlspace is drafty this may be more of an issue than the ambient temps. Cold drafts on water pipes are one of the main causes of freeze ups.
Perhaps you might consider insulating the walls of the crawl space and sealing any penetrations which would help keeping the temperature in the crawl space at a reasonable level.
This not only helps keeping the pipes from freezing but will also helps keeping the floors above warmer.
2 cents worth.
