BLYTHEVILLR (ARK.) COUIURU NEWS TUESDAY, II, 19'IG BETTER HOMES t ^ Floor Insulation Termed Practical Ventilation Desired Under House and That Means Cold in Winter WUlibul getting, into the ni-gu- mcttt .About ''basements versus no basements," it Is (rue that one of the reasons why some home owners Insist upon basements i-s (he thought that, without them, floors will be cold. ' Here, arc some thoughts to consider on that point, says Practical Ruddert Chicago. If your floor is of wood, it must be buiH a foot or EO above the ground for ventilation. In that it, should be heavily insulated with some form of .standard insulation of accepted quality. Since the space under the floor !s open to" fie winter ntr, the floor will be cokl. without adequate insulation. If the floor is of concrete or a combination of structural clay tile and concrete, laid directly on the ground, (.ho ground becomes the insulatjns medium'. Due to ils mass and the fact thai tho house is beated in winter, the temperature of the groum( under the floor Elnb [lyctuate.s very lillle with tho seasons, and cold does nol seem to penetrate 1 very far under the slab at tho"\va!1s. However, at Ihe pcltfr.s of the!' floor slab, where it is exposed - lo winter c»ld, insulation should ; bc provided, otherwise cold nifty -penetrate a considerable dis- tnncG 1'into the floor slab at the walls. •>* The'proper way to build such n floor excavate about six inches • below ithc floor and pour the slab over cinder or gravel fill. This helps tb insulate and stops capillary net ion 'of water. Where floor and foundation meet, dirt is excavated under r the /ioor to a depth of about 18 inches and the space filled with cinders' or gravel. For insulation at the-eslgc of tho slab, insulating usunlly used.
