I routinely review the search-engine phrases which land people at this blog, and plan to begin trying to answer the questions posed as best I can.
Today someone came here after querying, “Is it safe to live in a very cold house?”
A: For godsake, no, it is not! You can perish at any moment in a very cold or even moderately cold house, exactly as you can in a moderately warm or very warm house. The general sources of danger which exist in the world– including medical catastrophes, hazardous pets*, and jet-engines falling from the sky into your home, exist as much in cold houses as in warm. Thus, I suggest that if you choose to live in a cold house, you should not let your guard down. [*Exception: the danger of being bitten by a tropical poisonous snake, whether wild or kept as a pet, may be lower in a colder house.]
