    Andy, Yes. You certainly should insulate the heat exchange box on your heater. That box being exposed to the elements unprotected & uncovered, will allow the warm air FROM your heather to begin cooling that much earlier. In other words, That box being unprotected makes your heating system is less efficient. BTW, in California, we just use fiberglass insulation.
