Would the 3m tint reduce radiant heat from the sills?
I know it reduces radiant heat through glass.
If it does reduce the heat, I was planning to use it in the foot-well too.

Are their less expensive equivalents to the 3m film?
When you place a solid substance on the sills, it now becomes "conductive" heat, which window film will not inhibit.
