    Not really a direct HVAC question but was wondering what HVAC pros thought about radiant barrier paints on the underside of roof decking - they are supposed to keep attics cooler to create a better environment for HVAC equipment. Does this stuff actually work?

    I tend to agree.

    If reflective coatings work for windows, then why not other places also.

    In the 80's I was involved with Eagle Shield.
    I never got the stuff, but a friend did and said that it FELT better in his home.
    I don't know that it reduced his utilities though...

    Those who believe, appear ignorant to those who do not know God.
