We had it installed on the west side of our house.....there was some difference but it was minimal. The home office is in the front bedroom so it faces west where the sun gets intense. It was a compromise as I could have gone with a darker film but that would make the view darker as well. Don't think the film is a game changer

Yes. I added it to our two master bedroom windows (east facing). The film helps quite a bit. According to a digital laser thermometer, the difference was about 24 degrees cooler after applying the film. I used Gila brand Platinum-Heat-Control Adhesive Window Film.
