New studies have recently come out comparing the different options for retrofitting windows, such as adding blinds or storm windows, with replacing windows. The study from the National Trust for Historic Preservationís Green Lab includes performance results in a variety of climates as well as return on investment information for those options. The study can be found at http://www.preservationnation.org/information-center/sustainable-communities/green-lab/saving-windows-saving-money/#.UnetmlNjG5I
