UV filtering materials

A colleague serving on the board for a historic house asked about
using UV film to cover interior window glass.

   "Film to cover the windows was purchased, but a tinting company
    informed us that placing film on the interior window surfaces
    would cause heat build up and wood deterioration in the frames
    between the inner window and outer storm window. (The museum is
    in a circa 1925 house). Would this happen? They propose to
    provide protection on the storm windows at much higher cost"

Does anyone else have experience with this?  The local firm wants to
charge a high fee for the installation of their product.
