I have a south west facing window in my kitchen that really heats up
in the afternoons. It's a tripane unit about 25 years old, seal
intact. No other windows on the white stucco wall and the neighbour
has white stucco too. Lots of reflected heat.
Can I put window tinting on it. I've looked at auto types and they are
not recommended for residential use, but there appears to be types
that are, Gila makes them http://www.gilafilms.com/home/home_film.html
Would they break the seal on the window by reflecting heat back into
the sealed air space??
Any ideas or comments welcome. I am looking to stop my kitchen heating
up so much.
