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.

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.Read more ›
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
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
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
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.
