How effective a Radiant Barrier will be mainly depends on several conditions; this include to what level the house is installed with the Radiant Barriers, how much insulation is in your attic; and if your air handler and duct work are in your attic. The amount of savings depends on how much of the heat load in your house comes from the attic. If the walls of your house are well-insulated and your windows are energy efficient, attic heat can account for a large part of the cooling load of your home, and Radiant Barriers can make a larger difference in your air conditioning bill.

Radiant Barrier may be used in walls.Furring strips are applied to the sheathing to create a vented air space between the Radiant Barrier and the siding, and vents are used at the top and bottom to allow convective heat to rise naturally to the attic. If brick is being used on the exterior, then a vented air space may already be present, and furring strips are not necessary. These is effective since it leads to a great reduction in the air conditioning appliances used in the house thus saving both energy and construction costs.

Radiant Barriers are also quite effective in floor systems above unheated basements and crawl spaces. The Radiant Barrier may be either stapled below the floor joists, creating a single reflective air space, or between the joists, followed by some type of sheathing. Radiant Barrier works extremely well in this application because Radiant Barrier that are not perforated for breathability acts as excellent vapor barrier. This means that ground moisture will not be able to pass through the Radiant Barrier and enter the living space.
