    Cool.

    Does this mean I can afford to turn my heat back up to 68 in the winter?

    Already noted in the story it will be a long while before it sees wide spread use. They just, in the last 2 months, figured out a way to make the material more efficiently.

    Insulate your home better, buy better windows and doors and you can easily heat and cool your home better. I was in a 70's made home and was lucky if I could afford to put the AC at 80 and afford it. I am now in a house built in 2002 and run the ac at 70 all the time and the heat at 70. My bill is lower then the old house also.
