to* AIR TION AND THIS SUMMER...Live, Work, Sleep COOL with Air-conditioning, due io manufacturing advancements during recent years, is new within the reach of practically everyone. Many homes,"however, that are equipped with an automatic washer and dryer, dishwasher, radio and TV set, still do not have an air- conditioner. The advantages of an air-conditioner, not only in the home, but also in office and plant, are numerous. Number one on any list of advantages would undoubtedly be th'C escape from the oppressive heat of summer — and an Iowa summer can be plenty oppressive. Families with air-conditioners are healthier because they consume more nutritious foods in hot weather; mom, dad and the kids don't feel like eating much if they are being blasted by hot air from all sides. A cool hdme will bring back appetites and make every member of the family feel better. It has been proven that houses stay cleaner longer, dry cleaning bills are lower (less sweat), doctor bills are lower and persons with asthma, hay fever and heart conditions get relief from their ailments. So you see, the advantages of air-conditioning are almost endless. Most persons have the idea that maintaining a cool, livable home during the heat of summer, whither at Lone Rock, Fenton, Swea City, Lakota or Algona, is an expensive enterprise. It's not so — prices have been reduced during recent ..years (just as has been the case on many TV sets) so that an air-conditioner is no longer an "out-of-this-world" piece of equipment, price-wise. Manufacturers have made it easier for persons to live in comfort throughout the year through the production of reasonably-priced air-conditioning units. Cooler Air —Better Work Science has found the best temperature cnvironmsnl for performing mental work is in the mid-70 degree range. Air-conditioning seems to be the answer during the summer months in this area. Studies of office workers at varying temperature conditions show efficiency drops rapidly as the temperature rises above this range. Body heat rises rapidly because the atmosphere is unable to absorb the extra heat generated in the human body. This results in a decrease in the ability of workers to perform even simple tasks 1^ IP ,¥/) OW. , . HEAT North Central Public Service Co. a bruant GAS AIR CONDITIONS A NEW KIND OF AIR CONDITIONING!

There are three basic ways the body can combat this build-up of energy destroying excess heat, radiation, or passing off the heat directly to the ;ur, evaporation of moisture or perspiration and by iiuUaei with a cooler surface which will absorb the excess heat. The most efficient way to keep cool is to lower the humidity and temperature of the atmosphere surrounding workers using mental skills through the use of an air-conditioner. Practically all sizes and brands are available from Algona dealers. Check Your Requirements Selection of the proper air conditioning equipment is relatively simple, no mutter where you plan to use it — in home, office or factory. To help you make the right selection, and to assure you of getting the right equipment for the job, air conditioning experts have outlined a few things to keep in mind. Here's their advice on the matter: Make certain the unit selected has the necessary amount of cooling capacity for the area in which it is to be used. Too much air conditioning in a given area can result in needless expense, both in initial cost of the equipment and operation. An air conditioner that is too small will give you the idea you spent your money for nothing in the first place. It just won't do the job right. There are factors, of course, that will influence the cooling capacity a home, office or factory needs. Shade trees, awnings and Venetian blinds provide a certain amount of protection from the sun and therefore make the job of air conditioning easier and less expensive. Insulation in walls and ceilings is also a factor in your favor when the time comes to install air conditioning. Requirements for air conditioning vary greatly. For instance, when you purchase air conditioning for a home, don't forget to add cooling capacity to counteract heat coming from other appliances. In the kitchen, your range and clothes dryer add heat that must be considered belore you make the final selection of an air conditioner. Even the number of persons in a home can make a difference in the size air conditioner needed. A large family could need a larger unit than a small family due to the amount of heat given off by the human body. Persons that entertain a lot need an air conditioner with greater capacity than those that don't have friends in very often. Your air,conditioning dealer will be happy to visit with you on your needs, and it is possible for him to give you exact detail's and cost figures on the air conditioner needed for your purpose. He can furnish the equipment needed to properly air condition any nrc3. * ST.
