Yep the residential stuff works. We get a flyer for it with our electric bill. My brother swears by it. I canít use it bcuz I have the blinds in between the panes of glass and the stuff goes on the inside. (my house that is). I understand the film has metal strips in it that reflect the suns rays, but you canít see them. Itís the same concept as the beads that go in the roof paint. The little beads reflect rays rather than soak them in.

mirrored window film

reference mirror reflective film: Mine worked great on the 3 back windows that did not have any tint to them but on the side glass that has a slight tent, the film did not provide the mirrored look. Its like the 2 tints are working against each other.

I was curious if perforated vinyl wrap material would reflect more heat. You could even go with white vinyl which I guess may reflect more heat. A youtube pro installer was recommending products from: ImageVue - Perforated Vinyl Films - Uncoated - Products - Clear Focus Imaging. Some can be custom printed and some come in colors or their most reflective for interior office windows blocks 52% of the heat

NukeIT ,This looks like a winner. 3M. Blocks 97% of heat producing infrared rays.

Does anyone know how reflective the Gila or 3m film is? My state doesn't allow more than 20 percent reflectivity for autos.
