Stop Heating Your House?

Check out this guest post on No Impact Man, about how some Japanese households use a lot less energy than most Americans, because they heat (or don't) their houses much differently (and maybe they're a little tougher).

I don't think we're ready to go this far quite yet (and I'm certain that the other two units in our condo, with whom we share a furnace (and we control the thermostat) are not), but it's definitely interesting to think about different ways of approaching energy usage, and what the impact is on family life, as well as the energy bill.
