Well, for heat reduction you'll be much better off with window tint films.

The curtains will cause some shadow and better "privacy" but they won't do much for heat - the sun will heat the curtains up, and as they're inside of the vehicle they'll irradiate heat inside.

When you have "treated windows" either from factory or post-install window film, they'll block the heat before it gets inside - hence the heat reduction properties. (And as they block UV as well, it also helps maintain the leather and plastics looking good.)
