Installing a radiant barrier in the attic can reduce your heating and cooling cost. A radiant foil barrier installed under the rafters will reflect a large percentage of the heat that is absorbed by the roof in the summer and contain the heat that escapes the living space into the attic during the winter. It can be installed on the attic floor also. However, it will need to be a perforated foil barrier to allow the rise and evaporation of moisture, especially in humid climates. This may be an effective way of lowering your energy bill. However, there are claims that suggest that placing the barrier under your rafters can reduce the life of your roofing. Radiant barriers are available at Lowes and Home Depot. They look like a giant roll of tin foil.
