Radiant Barrier/TV reception

I want to install the foil type radiant barrier in my attic to cut down heating/cooling expense, but have heard that this can interfere with TV reception if using rabbit ears or attic antenna. Will I have to move my atenna in the attic to a roof mount?

Probably, but the CIA wont be able to monitor your activities by satelite anymore. Its a trade off.

I need to insulate my attic also, why did you chose to use that material in the attic?

I did add insulation in my attic, but also have been checking of radiant barrier to help further with heating/cooling costs. I have looked at info on spraying the barrier and using the foil and decided the foil is less costly to diy and gives better results. Have not done the work yet, still procrastinating.
