Eight THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, SUNDAY MORNING, AUGUST 24, 1952. CUT-AWAY VIEW ./ OF r HEATING ELEMENT UNOBTRUSIVE AND ATTRACTIVE baseboard heating equipment throws a curtain of heat over windows, maintaining even temperatures. Baseboard Heating Systems Gaining in Popular Demand By MB. FIX Home building, modernization and repair being at its height now, in the warmest days of summer, it is far from incongurous to be thinking of heating systems. Coming into high favor is -baseboard heating, introduced just after World War H. It eliminates the standing radiator and provides an even heat from an unseen source, which extends the length of cold exterior walls at the baseboards. Baseboard .heating equipment can employ either forced circulation hot water or vapor heating systems, but manufacturers generally recommend forced hot water, because temperature control is more accurate. This equipment can- be installed to replace existing baseboards, since it is particularly adaptable to home remodeling and modernization, as well as to building. Manufacturers claim that temperature variance between floor and ceiling is maintained at less than three degrees, since the systems throw a blanket of rising heat over exterior walls and windows. With baseboard heating systems, carpeting can be laid wall- to-wall and the baseboard enclosures may be painted to harmonize with the rooms' decor. Many systems have heating elements of copper or steel pipe with steel, copper or aluminum fins attached to increase heat radiation from the pipe. This is faced vith sheet steel topped with a molding. Minor Trades In Real Estate Are Fewer Minor transfers recorded in the office of Edna May Walker, register of deeds, this week were considerably fewer than last, and transfers over $5,000 were about the same in number. The home at 105 Highland Road, on lot 3, block 2, Country Club Addition has been purchased by Richard W. and Gertrude D. Snyder from Otto J. and Mary E. Wahler for an indicated 511,500. Madison M. and Mary H. Letts have sold the home at 543 Michigan Ave. to Jack R. and Ruth E. Marvel for an estimated 59,500. The property lies on lots 1, 2, 3 and 4, block 4, Shower's Subdivision. Carl and Mable Wilk have obtained title to the home at 502 Linn, on lots 15 and 16, block 29, Fackler's Addition, for a reported 59,000.

Installation costs vary, according to heating contractors, from $5 to $6.50 per lineal foot for baseboard modernization, depend-; ing on the amount of renovation work and labor rate in various localities. The latest count shows that 24 manufacturers offer various designs of baseboard heating. One manufacturer offers the following cost figures on two in-j stallations it made, complete with: wiler and oil burner, "often an expense not required." 1—An historic two-story Pennsylvania stone house was fully equipped at a cost of $1950, or $7.12 per lineal foot The house measured 40 by 28 feet. 2—An old hot air system was. removed from a three-story house; and replaced with an oil-burning; xjiler and 250 lineal feet of baseboard for $2100, or $8.40 per lineal j :oot 11 Rapidly Increasing in popula^ r avor, says a manufacturer, base-: board heating has as its main competitor wall or floor panel leating among the new systems, and hot air remains as the con- ending favorite of the older sys- :ems.
