Amazon.ca Product Description

Windows eat up energy. Gila Window Films (aka window tints) can help reduce energy loss and lower cooling costs by up to 50 percent. In addition to providing energy savings, window films and tints block annoying glare and reject UV to reduce fading and help protect interior furnishings. EZ Mount adhesive technology allows for easy window film installation and long lasting performance. Or for an easy on/easy off solution, try our Peel & Cling static cling application. Either way, you enjoy the savings year after year.

From the Manufacturer

Gila films are the brand leader in DIY (do it yourself) window films. Our best in class deep dyeing, coating, and adhesive technologies have helped design higher performing, longer lasting films that are among the best in the marketplace. We manufacture and package our films at our world class manufacturing facility located in Martinsville, VA USA in order to measure and ensure tight quality and performance standards from start to finish.

Patience and attention to detail!

The above qualities will be the key to your happiness with this product. If you do not possess the above qualities get someone else to install this stuff for you. The short review - You definitely want this window film... This stuff works excellent!

I have a newer home which features fairly large south facing windows on both the main floor and the upstairs master bedroom. While this is great for allowing lots of natural light in, it also means the house gets quite warm in the summer, especially upstairs. Except for a couple weeks during the summer it doesn't get extremely hot here in Greater Vancouver so rather than invest in a $4500+ heat pump that would only get used a few weeks per year I decided to try out one of these premium quality heat control films from Gila.

The first thing you need to do once you receive your box of film is immediately put it down and watch the extremely helpful installation videos on the Gila website. Trust me, you are going to want to watch it a couple times, or better yet have it playing on a tablet next to you where you can pause and rewind it while you are going through the installation steps. It's a tedious process, but like I stated above, if you have patience and attention to detail you WILL get some fantastic results.

The next thing is you want to make sure you have all of the necessary tools to do the job right. Gila sells an "install kit" but I created my own for only a few bucks at the dollar store. You will want (dare I say NEED) the following items to make installation as easy and successful as possible: window squeegee, small spray bottle, Exacto/utility knife, baby shampoo, Windex, towels and a credit/debit card.

We can feel the difference right away after installing this film. Lets Sun light in but without harmful UV rays and blocks the heat. Temperature started dropping immediately after installation. AC cools so must faster now.
Excellent product easy install with 2 people. took minutes to install on 3 windows. If you follow the instructions its a breeze. Make sure windows are 100% clean and you will have no issues. Having someone to help you makes it so much easier to peal the backing film and install. Highly recommend

I installed this on two west facing rooms and the difference is phenomenal. It used to be on a sunny summer day I have to close both the blind and drape to keep the heat out, and the rooms still get pretty hot. After this I can actually sit in the said rooms during a sunny afternoon without closing either blind or drape.

Install is easy enough with one person on regular sized windows, although two person would be nice to help peel the film. Videos on manufacturer's website provide good instruction, better than the instruction manual in fact. I did not buy the installation kit, instead I supplied my own tools and mixed the solution.

The film is very clear and bubble free if you follow the instructions. Things do appear darker through the film, but not enough to cause you unable to see through during dawn and dusk.

Very happy with it, though how durable it is or how it works in winter remains to be seen

Tiny bubbles everywhere. more seemed to appear after a day. I have a feeling humidity/condensation gets under it. Hopefully with the hot sun this summer it will go away....
If you are looking for a professional look, call a professionnal.

UPDATE AFTER ONE YEAR: the south side window that I did kept the curtans looking like new. And the south side window that I did not do the sun made my curtans fade. So yeah it does its job

This is tricky stuff to apply without at least two people, and it's likely you may have to redo your first window or two as you learn how to seal and trim the edges properly. But once it's on, the reduction in heat is significant; I've applied this film to a 4'x5' window and two smaller flanking windows that all face due east, and my living room has gone from being Crematoria every summer morning to being a space I can actually live in. I know this film won't do anything for the cold in the winter, but I'm okay with that. I'm beyond happy with the reduction in morning heat!

The kit helped with the install of the film. Use the spray liberally on your window and both side of the film (spray sticky side first, apply and then spray film again when it's on the window to help with smoothing) for best results.
Would recommend picking up a few other things to make the install process easier:
A razor blade paint scraper ( for getting your windows super clean before installing), an Exacto knife( for tight corners), a squeegee (to help smooth on the film) and some scotch tape (to help peel off the backing from the film).
Also, having someone to help you is a huge bonus and the film can be difficult to handle in tight spots and up ladders by yourself.

Great product! Helped cool my west facing top floor condo with skylights. My place would get up to 30+ celsius by later afternoon and now with the film it stays around 22-24 celsius.
