As an old house junkie, I believe restoring existing windows is the "right" thing to do and of course restoration is greenest: wood windows can last centuries and the typical disposable vinyl replacement only 20. Spend the same money restoring the sash and putting up good quality storm windows - the efficiency is almost the same and it keeps the house intact.

Scientists have made a breakthrough discovery in the bizarre properties of glass, which behaves at times like both a solid and a liquid.
