Windows eat up energy. Gila Window Films (aka window tints) can help reduce energy loss and lower cooling costs by up to 50 percent.

Like a previous reviewer, my husband and I also live in Texas (Austin as well, in fact) and decided to install window films in our new house. We've had record heat this year, so it seemed like a wise investment. Enter Gila.

I actually did the first two windows by myself and didn't have too much of a problem. I ended up with one barely-noticeable crease in the first from not being careful enough about peeling off the backing, but otherwise didn't have too much trouble. It was easier, however, doing the remaining windows with two people. The windows look fantastic, nearly professional grade, and certainly nothing like the horrid window tinting that people throw up in old clunker cars.

Tips:
1) Read the instructions.
2) Clean your windows obsessively before starting.
3) Cut the film ~1 inch larger on each side.
4) Peel the backing off VERY slowly and carefully.
5) Spray the window and both sides of the film liberally with a soap & water solution. You can use the stuff in the application kit for this or just mix up some baby shampoo or dish soap with water. There's no such thing as too much of the stuff sprayed on your windows (as long as you clean up the windowsills afterward), but you WILL have trouble if you spray too little!
6) Squeegee all the bubbles out, working from the center outward.
7) Use a razor blade to trim the edges only after you've squeegeed all of the liquid out from between the window & the film. If you leave much, the film may slip while you're trimming.

And that should do it. If you end up with any micro-bubbles in the film, they should disappear within a couple of days.

I installed this film on my patio door last summer to cut down on the heat being transferred from the concrete pad, worked like a charm. Did the same for my son's room and guest room, huge difference. Went ahead and did the rest of my house this spring, and again, same results, works very, very well.

Things you WILL need to do

1) Suck it up and get an install kit or at a minimum the plastic blade. It will save time and hassle.
2) Clean your window well, and use a razor to scrape any excess dirt/paint off the window to prevent bubbling. Then clean it again. Same process used by a buddy of mine, who is a professional tint man for auto and home.
3) Have a helper. When it comes time to peell the backing off the film, this will be a lifesaver.
4) No such thing as getting the film too wet. Spray the heck out of it and your window when installing. All excess can be squeeged out. Don't forget to spray it a bit once it's mounted to help the squeege blade slide over the film.

First and foremost I have to share that this film came well packaged in a box that included a spool that allowed me to dispense it in an easy manner which really helped facilitate cutting and sizing. The film width was more than enough for the windows and sliding glass doors in our home so rather than worrying about cutting the film as the manufacturer suggested with the 1 inch border added to the window measurements I left the excess on the sides and cut to the window measurements minus 1/16 on the top and bottom so that once applied the film only needed to be cut at the sides.

In order to achieve a professional result a professional set up is always beneficial. I took the time to try and set up the most convenient and efficient way to handle, cut and prepare the film prior to applying it to my windows. I used a folding table about 75 inches long that we had as my cutting and spraying station. I used a permanent marker to lay out cutting templates for each window so that I would be able to line up one of the factory edges (one of the sides) along one of the lines I drew which allowed me to make proper measurements, cut with less waste and have a sure fit each time. I measured all my windows in advance and worked on all the ones with the same measurements before moving on to windows with different dimensions. This allowed me to cut enough sheets of film in succession and lay them aside. Once cut I could then clean off the window, return to the table and prep the film with the spray. When spraying the film before application I would peel the backing from the film, use blue painter's tape to hold down that corner and peel away the backing. I then would use more painters tape to secure the film and sprayed it with the solution as I removed the rest of the backing.

My fiance and I just bought a house in St. Petersburg Florida. Our new home has huge windows (double paned) and about fifty feet of exposed eastern exposure that just bakes for half the day, so much so it was uncomfortable to sit in the living room even with blinds drawn until late afternoon when the sun had passed over head.

By that time the house had heated up so much that the a/c was struggling and our first several electric bills in the summer showed it ($300 +).

With only roughly 30% of our windows now covered (our entire eastern exposure) with the film we can already feel a huge difference that we hope will be reflected in our electric bills to come.

Its nice that the film is NOT overly dark or Super reflective, I didnt want our home to be a cave or look like a house of mirrors from the outside, but the light heat control tint seems to be a nice mixture of heat reducing and tint while still allowing pleasant light in during mid day.

Things you will need; a few sizes of razor knives or exacto blades, a squegee or two, scotch tape, a tape measure, a large table that you can put a piece of cardboard down to make cuts on (we used our dining room table and we were just careful) A large Drywall t-square is also very helpful to make true cuts or at least a metal yard stick, and a helper to peel the backing away and spray down the adhesive side of the film (IMPORTANT SO IT DOESNT STICK TO ITSELF)

The best advice I can give you is obsessively clean the window with a razor blade and squeegee prior to installation, then do it again, hairs and window schmutz will be very visable after installation and buy plenty of the spray solution or use distilled water and a few drops of baby shampoo.

You CANNOT use too much spray solution.
