Simply so, does heat control window film work?
The new year-round, energy-control window films are not difficult to install and they do work. The color and amount of tint of the film also impacts how much heat and glare come through the window glass. For hot climates, a darkly tinted film with a low-emissivity coating blocks the most heat and glare.
One may also ask, can I use Windex to apply Gila Window Film? It should be completely clean and free of grime. Don't use Windex or any other household cleaners on the glass, because the film may not adhere well, and the chemicals in cleaners may break down the plastic. Once the glass is clean, wipe it dry or let it air dry. Cut the film to size using a straight edge.

Can I use water instead of Gila application solution?
