Dreadful idea.   This is done in apartment buildings in Germany and I'm
told that typically *all* the heating in an apartment is disabled if
*any* window is opened.   Siemens (was Landis and Staefa) even make
control systems to do this properly, but of course it's normally wired
with one switch per apartment for cheapness and so people tend to
disable them, close doors and turn off radiators as appropriate.

Meanwhile in Russian cities with district heating, the common practice
is to turn on the heating on Oct 1st come what may.   Multiple
occupancy buildings often don't have much by way of controls so people
use the windows as thermostats until it starts getting cold.

Actually they are at a lower rate.......but taxed with tariffs..
And the general public is ready to hang a politian, if the taxes get too
wild
on heating fuel.And did in times past.....a lot faster than in Europe and
other areas
that tolerate conruption with taxes on road and heating fuel.Other wise we
would already
have 6.00to 8.00 a gallon road fuel and 1.00 a KWhr electric rates for the
good of the community.
And almost that high in gas and heating oil......
We are to believe that throwing money to the government will fix anything .
When government is responsible for some of the biggest messes possible.
In their "big brother" help on a problem....
Whether it is energy ,health ,or pensions.......the present is bad ,but
government will
virtually always will show you the way to worse, on thier cause to expand
powers.
Just like you are seeing happening now in congress on "Hilary care round 3".
Or much of anything to do with energy coming out of congress in the last
40years.
It was more about expansion of power than energy,so you made something that
needed to be "fixed" regularly.
Instead of doing it right.....

I you are talking dollars, is that price already in Europe. Road fuel

Sometimes applies to the floor as well....Korean's invented central heat
upwards of
3000 years ago.You build fireplace or stove on side of the house and run a
honeycomb
chambers in the stucco/concrete house slab to chimmey on the oppose side of
the house.
Radiant heat floor in otherwords.
Like regular chimmeys you need to inspect your floor for cracks that could
leak CO into the house.With pretty much the same kinds of repair as on the
chimneys when they do crack with age .
