So, how do LED TVs stack up?

Significant Contributers:
*Poor Insulation (just heard first hand how heavy blinds 
made a home cooler during hot days)
*Poor Shade/Lack of Vegetation
*Poor Aspect/Lack of natural Lighting

On the chest vs upright - I suspect size (as well as 
efficiency) has something to contribute.
