The Behavioral Economics Of Mexican Central Heating

As a result, insulation materials are profoundly expensive here. Sadly, Cave doesnt put numbers on the cost of insulation materials or central-heating systems in Mexico, compared to elsewhere in the world, so its hard to tell what he means by profoundly expensive. But I suspect that its not that expensive: Fernando Sandoval, an architect who used to work for Anderson Windows, the American chain, said that given such prices, double-pane glass and central heating could eat up a sixth of the total cost of construction. Few seem to bother. Even the most modern apartments here, with stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops, are often devoid of radiators or thermostats. They all say, Id rather have hardwood floors, Mr. Sandoval said.
