Radiant heat in floor joist application

I am remodeling our 1860's farm house and have read that the floor joist radiant option is not as efficicient as assumed. From what I am undersanding the " board sheathing" that is typical allows for more heat loss or cold penetration than modern construction.
Can anyone confirm or dispel this theory?... FYI I do plan to seal the perimeter joist band and utilize reflective insulation.

Staple up is not as efficient. But still can provide a lot of comfort.
