No need to insulate inside the house unless it gets too warm. I have the same thing and the warm floor above the pipe is nice.

My only concern would be that that strip of heated floor would creep the house temp up on mild spring and fall days. Just a thought.
Would depend on if you intend to run it in warmer weather, especially for domestic water.

Yes, if it warms the house up too much then insulate it. I would try without first unless it is ever going to be used for dhw in the summer. Then it should be insulated for sure.

Probably not going to run it in the summer. I'll try it without it and see.I guess it's not like the heat will be wasted.

Unless you have to open the windows to let it out.  ;D
 After having the bare pipes in my house, I wouldn't insulate them. the radiant is a nice side effect and may even cut down blower run time depending on how much of the house it radiates to.

If I insulated my basement pipes the wife would need a coat to do laundry. I have forced air with zero registers in the basement but all the copper pipe radiates enough heat to keep it comfortable.
