Compare our Energy Efficiency Against Other Window Treatments!

EcoSmart Shades are durable energy saving window treatments that pay form themselves in less then three years in our home state of Vermont in a home without air conditioning. If you add air condition costs, these shades will pay for themselves in less than two years, how cool is that! In other parts of the country where heating and cooling costs are greater, you’ll see even larger savings on your home’s energy bills!
