Insulate batteries from heat?

This seems like a rather obvious question, but I thought I'd check first. I'm guessing that I need to remove all the insulation around my batteries now that it's unlikely that the temp will get below 40 degrees for the next 6 months or so. I am thinking that the batteries will begin reaching temps too hot with the summer coming, and the insulation might actually damage the batteries. On the other hand, could the insulation keep the batteries from getting too hot if the car is sitting out in the sun all day??
