Dan is filled with a wealth of information when it came to helping us select the best option for our new home. He also took the time to explain the benefits of the Eco Shades that he suggested. It has been about a month or so and sometimes I can't tell whether the air conditioning is on or off in my main floor and to my surprise on several occasions I've returned home from work only to walk in to my living room feeling like I don't have to reach for the thermostat to adjust the AC because the room is already cool. The best part about the shades Dan installed is that they let you see outside but still give you the privacy since the same shades don't allow you to see inside. The actual look and feel of the shades is very sleek and clean. Dan did not leave until the job completed and we were completely satisfied. If you want to make a decision that will save you money in energy costs (including in the winter) I would not hesitate to suggest EcoShades for the job.
