48 in. x 180 in. Titanium Heat Control Window Film is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 435.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunglasses for your window! After mid-day the front of our house gets very sunny, we have many windows that heat up our kitchen and living room... and the brightness gets irritating. Our first thought was to install window awnings, we decided to try this film with new venetian blinds. We bought the 48” x 120” box [~$50], was enough to cover all our windows, and we also got the application kit with spray solution, squeegee, and razor [~$9]. After following the instructions on paper and video demos, we are amazed at how much it has improved the issues we had! The brightness and heat issues are gone… even when the sun is at highest point! Speechless! Plus an added bonus, the film increased privacy… from outside during daytime, windows look like a black mirrors! We are more than pleased and amazed! We don’t have to install awnings! Some tips to make installation better: have a large clean surface ready to lay out the film… it will be tough without this. SLOWLY open and move the film around, it can crease it bends too much. You can’t wet the window and film enough… more was better for us! With that have many towels ready to soak up solution. Don’t curt the film more than 2 inches bigger than window pane… it will be tough to manage when on the window. After installed, monitor the film to check for any bubbles… it you see any, spray solution on film and soothe out with squeegee. The squeegee the kit came with was perfect, no need for larger squeegee. There will be a slight haze on film, but it does go away… our started clearing up a day later, and not it’s pretty much gone. Good luck, take your time, and you will be amazed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just be patient and you will be fine. We live in SW Florida, it get sunny, hot and humid here. We just replaced our Air Conditioner, and since we are on the "Let's Cool Off" kick, we decided to you the Titanium Heat Control Window Film for our East, South windows. Our West windows are shaded by a large porch. Before purchasing we were concerned with the "Mirror Look" on the outside and considered the 3 in 1, but since the Titanium HC reduces sun heat up to 73% vs the 3 in 1 which is rated at 53%, we wanted the more efficient version. It is SO important to make sure your windows are clean clean clean, including removing caulk/glue from the edges of the window. If you don't remove it, you will have problems. Your windows should be cleaner than new. My wife worked with me since most reviews recommend a two man operation. Our window sections were 28" X 33", so yes, it made it much easier. Use loads of spray application, tons of it! That is the trick. Make a WET mess of your windows! It Makes it much easier. Measure, then measure, then measure, then measure before cutting. We moved our eating table into our bedroom to work off. Be close to your work!! After each window, we would clean the table again (We have 3 Golden Retrievers and 2 cats with long hair, so it is alway floating in the air." We purchased the application kit for this job, now when you run out of liquid from the bottle, you can make your own application spray. The instructions are in a video on the Gila website. All you need is baby shampoo (without conditioner) and water. Don't be a hurry during the application process. If you get frustrated, let your spouse work on it for a while. Our first window section took about 1 hour, after that about 40 minutes. You will get real comfortable with it. Now be very careful with the film, you can create a crease that will not look good, it is kind of like working with very think tin foil. If you watch the videos, you will be fine. For the first couple window sections, we had our iPad with us and play the video, then pause after each section. You will also have very small water bubbles throughout the window, as long as they are small about 1/8" in diameter, they will dry up in a day or two. Don't get frustrated with trying to remove them all. Now that we have them installed we actually like the look from outside the house. Now at night, if it is darker outside than inside, anyone will be able to see in your home. Now we live in a rural area, and one of our concerns is the mirror look attracting birds. Thirty minutes after our second window we had a bird fly into the window. He was OK, shook it off, then flew away. There are options for deterring birds from flying into your windows. Just use a search engine, or Youtube video. On our first day, we noticed a big difference in the temperature in our bedroom. It did not heat up so quickly and the A/C has no problem keeping up with the heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Really Does Work! An HD associate recommended using Gila Titanium Heat Control Window Film on my windows. Last winter, I lost some trees due to an ice storm. The result was more sun on the west facing side of my house. The hot southern sun penetrating through the windows and doors was rapidly heating up my living room. Thermostat was set at 76 and room temp was 86 by late afternoon. A digital thermometer on the floor where the sun was shining reached 100 degrees. My short term remedy was blinds and blankets over the windows and doors. After talking with an HD associate, I went with Gila Titanium Heat Control Window Film. He recommended watching the install videos several times and make sure to have all the tools necessary before starting. Make a plan and walk through everything in a dry run. Practice makes perfect. Installation was easy with two people since my windows were 3'x3' The results are beyond what I could have hoped for. The Gila Titanium Heat Control Window Film has reduced the room temp by 10 degrees and I no longer need blinds or blankets over the windows/doors. The sunlight that hits the floor is no longer 100 degrees. The other day with it being 102 outside, the floor (where the sun shined) was reading 78 and inside air temp was 76.8 degrees. I read some other reviews that said the film does not work and they followed directions. I don't believe it. I suspect they installed the clear liner instead of the actual window film. The only drawback is that depending on the suns angle and orientation to your windows, it may appear to have a blue hazy appearance. I've gotten used to it and It's well worth it for the comfort and reduced cooling costs in the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from titanium window film We put this film on the windows in our sun room to reduce the hot house effect. It seems to have reduced the heat by about 35% and we would do it again. We also use vertical blinds when the sun is directly on the windows. With three walls of windows, a lot of heat comes in the room during the day, but this window film has helped a lot. If the windows are long like ours, it is best to have two people to put the film on, as it tends to stick where you don't want it to, but they have improved this film a lot and it is more forgiving than previous versions of window film. It is best to buy the application film kit for ease of handling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from significant heat reduction I installed this on my large bedroom windows that are west facing. I have been using blackout curtains, but my wife likes natural light. I kept my curtains open for a couple of bright sunny days and my wife complained that it's freezing in the room now. works better than expected and easy to install by 1 person. Getting more now.

It does exactly as it it says: blocks the ultraviolet rays, and blocks the heat and keeps the room cool! Now , it looks like my rooms are wearing reflective sunglasses. The installation was pretty easy; no fuss! The installation video at the Home Depot site was excellent. I bought a 12" squeegee from Home Depot, and that is the most important tool for this project. I would have given 5 stars if the price was right; other than that, it is an excellent product and I love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating! No Gila customer service I have had experience installing window films. I followed their How To Install video on their web site. It instructs you to scotch tape the two corners to pull apart the plastic liner from the film. Could not do it after 4 hours of trying. I called Gila's Customer Service. Kelly said there is no plastic liner on this product. Really? It is quite thick for a film so I installed it on the 30" x 74" window. The film rolls off from both the top and bottom for about 3". The sides roll slightly. It adheres to the rest of the window. A 1/4" crease appeared about 1 foot from the bottom before hanging. After 5 days on the window and many sprays with solution and smoothing, the crease is still there. I am removing it from the window and throwing $40 in the garbage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from seems to do the job I have the sun on the back of my house all day til late afternoon. It is always hotter than the rest of the house, particularly within ten feet of the windows. After installing the heat control window film we had two days that hit 100 degrees. Definitely made a difference. it's still new but at this point I feel I should have done this years ago. It does make the room a little darker but I previously would pull the curtains down to block some of the heat. Now I am keeping them up.
