Ash I'hone 2007 Savings on Fuel Aid Home Buying Reduced Heat Lost Will Support Added Items for House One-half of the families tn-' ironies today finance them through PHA loans, many of them purchasing their houses direct from model home on view »t the real estate development. The purchaser can add "extras" to his horn* without increasing the financial burden of mortgage payments, it was said I-lay by the Construction Research Bureau, New Y' '• clearing house for building information This can be accomplished, Ihe Bureau said, by having the builder supply at only small added cost complete insulation beyond the minimum required by tlv FHA Fuel savings from the resulting lower heat loss will mpport up to S650 additional in some mortgage* if money saved on fuel is applied on the loan. Newly-completed studies on th< cost of complete, full-thick minera wool insulation in relation to tin Irel savings It affords through lh< life of a mortgage show that th< added construction possible range: from $120 in Southern California to $050 In the Southeastern states Hfal Loss Analyzed This conclusion was reached by the Bureau after analysis of heat loss from a typical 720-square-foot house such as Is being built throughout the country today. The house , examined was in the 5000 degree-day heating zone (New York City: Columbus. Ohio: Springfield. Ili.i atui findings were translated into terms applicable to other heat- ille zones. fn the house studied, the PHA requires that heat loss he no greater than 43.000 Btu per hour. This is attained by l<i Inches of mineral wool In the "-'ling anc" with nn wall insulation. But if S106 more is spent to increase ceiling insulation to three inches and to provide 3 5,8-inch full-thick baits or blankets of mineral wool in all exposed walls, heat loss Is reduced 16.000 Btu per hour to 21.000. Under the FHA minimum, cost of heating this typical house with 12- ccmt oil is S77 per season. The additional insulation orlngs annual heating cost to S48. a $29 saving. The net saving amounts to $24 per .<*\Sf*Se.«'»: OUTSIDE JOB-Brought to eulties of building » home undo -*-.,v. -.TV; s- /^^ ; .^-.* ' ' .',.'•' "^r^VV^Vk.v as (he House Armed Services Committee worried over dilfi- a $16,Sim margin, is eullies of building a home under a $16,SOO margin, is a low-tosl home Unit lioiisin B expediter lighe E.

Careful Inspection of Old Houses Will Provide Clues to Real Value I which these items can ho held b a minimum i.s a goort buy. fly I'pnry J. Uingite N'aUotialJy-Known Architectural Engineer An older house can prove a good buy if the purchaser determines the value in advance by careful inspection. Since much of the construction i-s hidden and a buyer cannot examine structural detail 1 ; as when building a new house, it is wu=e to employ a disinterested appraiser, an architect and a heatitig engineer to inspect the house. The appraiser will know whether the house Es worth the asking price; the architect will advise nn cofts and methods of alterations and repairs; and the heating contractor M'ill know whether Hie heating plant is adequate. Points to Look For The buyer himself can determine many points that will contribute to his family's comfort or rtiicam- tort and reduce or increase repair and operating expenses. Look for an even pour of the concrete foundation without large patches of R ravel. If concrete dents or chips easily under light hammer blows, it is not sound.
