How the Japanese heat their homes in winter — 4 Comments

  1. Hi My son is in Japan teaching English. He had a kerosene heater and was getting dizzy. Isn’t it dangerous to use these heaters indoors? It is in the US. How do the Japanese heat with them without surcoming to CO poising?

    • If you ever been inside a Japanese house, you would know there is no danger of co poisoning. Japanese houses are full of cracks and not air tight like American houses. Of course we need to use the heater indoors to keep warm. No point in using them outdoors, right? 🙂

  2. This is avoided by opening the window every once in a while and exchanging the air. Japanese houses can be air tight also. You just have to make sure you air out the room every once in while.
