Radiant barrier works on two basic properties and it includes reflectivity and emissivity. aluminum being reflective on the hot side it reflects some of the heat back from where it came. Subsequently and most significantly aluminum has a low emissivity, approximately 3% of the heat is emitted to the air on the cold side.it will be particularly efficient in both summer and winter.
