I am trying to cool my attic to lower the temp. in my house in the summer. I already have 6" of insulation. What about an attic fan?

1200 sq ft house; 3-ton 16 SEER A/C will not keep up during 90-degree days. Attic temp is 155. A/C runs all day but gets 80 degrees at three o'clock in the afternoon. I want to cool the attic space. I am torn between attic fans to remove heat, insulation, or radiant barrier. I am in the HVAC industry -- the A/C unit itself is working fine.
