Doors and windows are definitely opened to allow air to enter the house.  Of course...the cold comes in with it.  Remember that I used to live in a cold climate.  It was not unsual to be snowed in for up to a week, often without electricity.  The house, however, had been built with the cold in mind.  It was a simple matter to close off a portion of the house and heat it with gas or electricity, and it would stay warm.  The houses here are like iceboxes.  I have warm clothing with me.  This morning, I watched TV from my bed.  I had the "lencol termico" going and I placed a down jacket over my head.  Oh, and I had an electric heater on.  It's cold.

 

Last night I went to a Rotary Club dinner in Canela.  At dinner, most people were wearing coats, gloves, caps, neck scarves, etc.  It was cold.  The room had a very nice gas heater.  (The gas was in a "botijão".) I was very impressed with it.  The problem, of course, is that flame needs oxygen, and such stoves can be dangerous in a room that is not getting air from outside.
