Air conditioning provides tw important benefits. They are, course, cooling air and controllir humidity. To begin with, the Bureau poin out, there's no need to overs!: the system. Economy is achieve by helping the properly sized un do its job. Under average conditions, lome needs two or three tons < cooling to meet normal comfo; requirements. One method of d lermining the size of the unit neei ed for your home is to .figure thi each Ion of cooling is suitable fo 60j> square feet of living spac (One ton is equivalent to the coo ng effect produced by melting on of ice in a 24-hour period.)

One of the simplest projects that can be undertaken with this type of aluminum is a portable sun hield, suitable for the beach or jackyard. The support can be a imple spike that sticks in the ground or a wooden base that can re placed anywhere. The follow- ng materials are needed: •li" x 8 1 aluminum tubes 'it" x !)0-degree aluminum elbow fittings •V aluminum adjustable elbow 20' plastic clothes line 0 eye grommels 3',z' x 2',z' canvas (optional if using a wooden base) •V aluminum splicer assembly 2' x 2' x 1' board aluminum wood screws Saw one tube into two 3-foot engtlis and one 2-foot length. Saw ,he other tube into one 2-fool ength and one 6-foot length. The •foot and 2-foot lengths form the ectangular shield; the 6-foot engtli is the stand. About 15 inches from the top of he stand tube, make a bend of ipproximately 25 to 30 degrees, "ill the tube with sand before lending to avoid crimping the metal. Join the four smaller lubes inlo 3-foot by 2-foot rectangle with iie 9Q-degree elbow fittings. Lay he rectangle flat, mark the mid- Heating Systems New Bathrooms ' he boltom *»' screw it into place. The other end of the elbow fits inlo the stand, but it's easier if you finish all other steps before making this connection. Hem the canvas, sewing the grommels at equal intervals around the edge, and lace the canvas onto the shield with the plastic clothesline. For a spike, cut a sharp Iri angle from the bottom or the stand tube and hammer the lube to fill this gap, making a point. For a wooden base, screw the splicer assembly into the board, using the aluminum wood screws, Fit the tube bottom to the assembly. Now fit the lower end of the adjustable elbow to the stand lube — and your sun shield is ready. Actually, it's not as complicated ai, it sounds. This is one case where it's easier done than said.

'Stub-In' Piping When You Build Means Saving Later You can save money in your new home by having the plumbing contractor "stub-in" piping to provide for future water needs, as family and finances grow. Not all prospective homeowners, says the Plumbing-Heating- Cooling Informaliort Bureau, can afford to have every convenience in a new home. Bub by pre-planning, they can add them at greatly reduced costs. "Stubbing-in" is easily accomplished by the plumbing contractor when a house is being constructed. In a family room, for example, the homeowner may anticipate the need for hot and cold water but be unable to afford installing a sink or drinking fountain. In such a case, the contractor will install the proper piping at the proper location and cap it. When the house is finished, the pipes will be concealed by the walls of the room and the j homeowner will be provided with plans showing the location of the stubbed-in pipes. When the homeowner decides he is able to have the desired fixture installed i he saves in two ways. First, remodeling costs are held down. Walls are opened at exactly the place where the sealed piping is located. This reduces the cost of' plastering or new paneling, etc. Second, because the piping is already there, the contractor can install anil adjust fixtures quickly. This provides a savings in time charges. Such savings can make it economical to bring a host of conveniences to many rooms in a house. Pre-planning and stubbing- in for a laundry room, powder room, bedroom lavatory or even a patio sink will mean added convenience at minimal cost. Any experienced plumbing contractor will be able to describe lh,e benefits of slubbing-in piping. David G. Damons Buy laconic Trail House Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J.
