Q: Which provides better insulation, carpet or hardwood floors?

I live in a townhome which sits completely on top of garages I live in Las Vegas, it gets HOT in the summer and Freezes in the winter. Through the seasons I struggle with cooling and heating or rather keeping my place cool or warm. I have had my cooling and heating system looked at and it is working perfectly. I don't feel the floor was insulated properly when this property was built aprox 10 years ago (I am not the original owner) I would love to install wood flooring but it has been suggested that carpet (currently installed) will keep it more insulated than a wood floor would. With the battle I am already facing with my thermostat I don't want to do something that will worsen my situation.
