The purpose of this study is to make clear the energy saving potential of low-impact life style through the measurementof energy consumptioin in residential buildings. The actions for low-impact life style are "to control the heat loss or heatgain by using curtains and blinds", "to set PC at saving energy mode" and so on. The results are as follows.(1) In one-person households, energy saving of 3.6-44.6% were achieved. Low-impact life style of air conditioning, lighting and information home appliances were effectively practiced.(2) In family households, 50-70% of whole subjects achieved 0.9-14.1% energy saving.
