Going cold turkey when it comes to heat may not be for everyone, but there are a growing number of folks who, for all, or part of the year, turn off heat and air conditioning. The NY Times reports that Justen Ladda has lived heat-free in his Lower East Side loft for three decades and the Cold House Journal tracks a Maine couple trying to live comfortably in a house without a furnace.
