How does radiant barrier work?

Your walls can conduct heat from your attic into your home–radiant barrier reflects the heat making your home more energy efficient

Your walls conduct heat directly from the sun and scorching roof temperatures into your attic. Conventional insulation only slows down this transfer of heat, but a more effective solution is to combine traditional insulation with radiant barrier to reflect the majority of the heat before it gets into your attic space. Allowing your home to stay cooler and puts less strain on your air conditioning system especially in the hot Austin Texas summers. Radiant barriers come with other added benefits including rebate incentives from some utility providers as well as contributing toward LEED certification for the highest degree of energy efficient and even energy neutral homes available today.
