This paper presents the possibility for setting heated building foundations at a depth lower than the level of „zero” isothermal line. In order for the foundation not to be susceptible to damage due to its exposure to negative temperatures, an appropriate thermal insulation was proposed. For the suggested thermal insulation - by means of numerical methods - a calculation of temperature distribution in the vicinity of the foundations was carried out. Based on the analysis of the obtained results, an optimal setting depth for insulated foundations was proposed.
