How do we use waste heat?

    Heat that is generated for the use of heating homes can be wasted by leaving windows open, as well as by bad insulation practices.  Heat can be wasted through the roof, ceiling, walls, and windows.  There are new, more environemntally-aware insulation practices that have recently become popular.  Also, heating one’s home when it isn’t need (ie: no one is home) is also wasted.  Using a hot water bottle, which can stay hot for hours, in the bed at night instead of leaving the heat on, is a great way to conserve energy.

    One idea:

    Parisian engineers are currently trying to use body heat generated in underground metro stations to heat apartment complexes above by funneling the heat through tunnels to warm pipes below apartments.
