Linda M., a retired police officer in Payette, ID, liked spending her free time doing art. She'd always enjoyed being creative, and now that she was retired, she had plenty of time.

The more pieces she finished and hung on her walls, the more Linda realized that the sun hit her artwork through her windows for a good portion of the day. She knew that could be detrimental because UV rays could damage her paintings. On top of that, Linda was also worried about the harsh sunlight fading her newly-installed hardwood floors.

The retired officer turned to Google to research the best way to protect her home's interior and belongings from sun damage. She found many articles and online discussions about window films. The more Linda read about it, the more convinced she was that she had found the perfect solution.


She looked for local window film companies and discovered CoolVu of Boise. After checking out the website and browsing their wide selection of products, she was certain they could help her. Linda called them and spoke to a representative who scheduled a free in-person consultation.

Quinn, a CoolVu technician, arrived a day later for the assessment. Linda showed him her artwork and expressed her concerns, and he understood why she was worried and explained that he had seen this situation before. UV rays were extremely damaging to not only the artwork but whatever stood in the direct path of the sun, like her photographs, furniture, and hardwood floors.

Quinn suggested CoolVu Silver 15, a metallic solar film. He said it would block 90% of the glare, reduce heat by 80%, and block 99% of harmful UV rays. Quinn told her that with this film installed, her rooms would be more comfortable, and she would save on energy costs. He also explained that the solar film had a reflective appearance on the outside, which would make it more difficult for people to see in her home. Linda hadn't even considered it but added privacy was appealing to her.

Satisfied with Quinn's attention to detail and happy with his recommendations, she scheduled an appointment for him to do the installation. He came back the next day on time and was ready to get started. Linda made herself a cup of coffee and watched as he went to work.

Quinn went to work. He cleaned the windows before installing, then cut and fit each of the films precisely over the glass. He applied them with an adhesive to ensure they stayed in place permanently.

Linda wanted to know about maintaining her windows after the window films were on. Quinn said once the adhesive was set, she could clean her windows as she normally would, using a soft cloth and non-abrasive cleaning products.

Quinn finished the kitchen, and Linda stepped outside to view the results. She was amazed at the reflectiveness of her windows. Not only did she have privacy, but the aesthetic the film gave her house was impressive.

From the inside, the change in the home was striking. Linda noticed the glare reduction and could feel a difference in the temperature. Most importantly, she was comfortable knowing her artwork and wood floors weren't subjected to damaging UV rays.

Quinn did the bedroom next. Linda was once again pleased with the results and thanked him for his exceptional work and for helping to protect the interior of her home, assuring him she would recommend CoolVu to anybody who needed window films.
