Answer: 
There doesn't seem to be any window tint that does this for sale at home depot. Double reflective tint which is like 5x the price helps with this but still doesn't completely block views from the outside in during night. With that said for daytime privacy this works just fine.

We have 4 windows 1ft x 4ft and 1 halfmoon non of these open, all the window bases are 7ft from the floor. It would be impossible to mount the film on the outside.

Answer: 
These are meant to be installed on the interior as the elements would eventually cause dust to go under the film causing peeling. If you got a dual pane window, they don't use this period as it may cause cracks.

Answer: 
Depends. If it's double or triple pane then yes. Single pane then it goes on the inside.

Answer: 
Yes it should reduce around 30% of the heat coming through, 97% of the UV rays and 67% of the glare. All in all it does help out a lot with cooling.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy To Install, UV Filtering, and decent Heat Control. Lacks Clarity but for $12 you can't beat this., I've tried pretty much every type of Gila tint meant for residential use with heat blocking characteristics. I'm going to break them down for you since no one did so for me and I had to do a lot of research to figure out what I wanted. There are 2 types of Gila Tint/Film. Static Cling: Easy To install, thicker tint, not as clear but doable. Paper Backing Adhesive Film: Harder to install, creases easily, professional look if done right, Perfect Clarity, super thin clear backing. There are a few types of gila film within these types. Titanium/Platinum: These are the best of the bunch for heat control. They are metal reflective and people can't see inside during the day, but you can see out perfectly. At the same time at night you can't see outside unless outside is lighting. Mirror effect. Blocks 50%+ heat. 99% UV, and 67% glare plus has low-e coating to retain heating during winter. Super tint of sort. Bronze: These are meant for those who want to see outside at night, while retaining some heat control, and a bronze look to their tint. Less mirror effect from inside at night. Blocks about 30% heat, 97% UV, and 67% Glare. Light: These are meant for those who want to see outside, but want the silver color, not the bronze color. Some go with these for dual pane but in my case all my windows are single pane so ignore this review for dual pane windows all together. I don't recommend this film. I'd go either bronze or full bore with titanium. Still can't see very well outside at night with these. Blocks up to 30% heat, 91% UV, 56% glare. ____ So with these static cling versions it seems there comes some issues such as clarity need a day or two of curing in the sun to reach full potential, and even then it's still a bit wavy when looking outside. Look at pics for examples. It's easier to install for those who never installed tint before, and it seems to come in smaller, cheaper one window sizes. In my case It fit 1 massive window. It reduces sun glare a lot, which is why I used it for my computer room, all the while letting me see outside during the day time. I'd use it again for a more temporary setting. But I'd get the bronze adhesive tint version sold only at lowes if I was doing it in my own home office as I'd love some more clarity that this version doesn't have. I'm also pretty good at installing tint so the difficulty isn't a problem. I'd give this a 4/5 review. July 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Prince of Darkness Fairly easy DIY. Maybe a 6 out of 10. They say to cut the film +1" and then final cut to fit after the film is up. I think it is easier to use a carpenter's square and cut it -1/16" each way and live with the fit. Espeically doing a big window. The stuff gets heavy and is difficult to hold in place while cutting a wet edge. If you are doing a big window, I'd suggest a 2nd person to help manage the film. It can get unwieldy to handle top to bottom. Gila has several DIY videos so watch one if you've never done this before. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by morning glare control so far so good.....exactly as described..fairly easy to apply August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best!!!!!!!!! I wish they carry this in-store so I don't have to order and wait. September 9, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Easier to apply than the video would indicate! This window film solved a glare problem in an office environment. Watch the video before applying but then read the instructions rolled inside the film. Applied to exterior of double pane windows as per instructions. The packaging and description for the product should SHOUT that you should buy the installation kit. Installed relatively quickly. Having really clean glass to start with helps, but don't be surprised if the film picks up lint and dust from the air during outdoor installation, which is required for all but single pane glass. Looks good, though, and solved the glare problem for a few dollars and with an hour's time invested. March 20, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Effective glare control This window film is very easy to apply. For best results, COMPLETELY clean the window. Directions advise you to use a window scraper to remove any material from the window surface. This step is very important. We installed this window film to reduce the glare from night time outside lighting. This was an inexpensive and simple way to darken the room at night without changing window coverings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JUST WHAT I WANTED I have wrap around kitchen windows, and my kitchen is south facing directly in front of a main street. I wanted something to counteract the head light glare, this product did that and more, I wasn't expecting it, but it also provides a little more privacy when I am in the kitchen at night, I definately have noticed not so many people staring me down when I'm in the washing dishes smack in the windows! Keeping heat inside up there or heat out has always been an issue, so much that i recently put new windowa in up there hoping it would do the trick, I have had more sucess with that with this $9 (on clearence at my local store) than my $800 worth of new windows! I'm rushing back and getting more while it lasts! September 16, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great and is removable I love this film. I applied it outside the windows to keep the heat out. Films applied to the inside of a window eliminate radiant heat coming in to the house, but they heat up with absorbed radiation and then act as a hot plate, providing convective heat inside your house. This film can be applied on the outside of the windows so you don't have that problem. It's a bit tricky to apply, definitiely helps to have two people since it clings to itself readily but it can easily be removed since it uses no adhesive. It is a bit fuzzy but the reduction in heat is worth it. July 18, 2010
