Radiant barrier insulation installation takes place usually in attics, primarily to reduce summer heat gain and reduce cooling costs. The barriers consist of a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat rather than absorbing it. Heat travels by conduction through the roofing materials to the attic side of the roof. The hot roof material then radiates its gained heat energy onto the cooler attic surfaces, including the air ducts and the attic floor. A radiant barrier reduces the radiant heat transfer from the underside of the roof to the other surfaces in the attic.

A highly reflective material (like aluminum foil) is used to reflect heat rather than absorb it. This reflective material is applied to sides of a medium such as cardboard, strand board, or plastic films. Radiant barriers are combined with other insulation products to increase home performance and efficiency of existing or new insulation systems.
Most homeowners never think to check their attic when thinking about insulation and home energy efficiency. In reality, this may be one of the leading causes of decreases in home performance and discomfort. Statistically, attics are the largest source of energy loss.
