On the first part a radiant barrier is just a reflective paper attached to the under side of the rafters."with open scel foam-that just another product?One resist radiant heat the other slows down thermal conductivity.The cooling tower thing-I have a electrician buddy who attached a small 1/4" water tube to his outdoor heat pump coil and said that sprying water on it after a long hot days last summer he did notice a greater performance and shorter cool down period in his home.I hope I helped
