I love this discussion! We manufacture EcoSmart Insulating Shades - I think they are absolutely the best insulating cellular shade on the market. So of course any green home discussion that focuses on conservation and efficiency is music to my ears! Windows are a huge source of energy loss and for many the option of replacing them is just too expensive. The Department of Energy has created a website ( http://www.efficientwindowcoverings.org/) to help folks figure out what is the best window covering choice for their home, climate etc.
