radiant barrier

Does anyone have any experince with radiant barrier used an an additive to INDOOR paint? Due to asbestos siding on my house, I am not able to have insulation blown in. Was wondering if adding radiant barrier pwoder to interior paint will make any difference heat-wise or if it is just a bunch of hype from the manufacturers? I wonder about its ability to keep heat IN the house. Thanks for your thoughts.

Many folks simply cover the asbestos siding with exterior insulation and then cover with siding.
