Choice of a healing system Is governed by the home-owner's preference in heating comfort; by the fuel to be used; and size and design of the house. Tlie quick results of hot steam radiator appeal to some; others prefer n hot water system. Panel or radiant heating is widely used in basement less houses. Rooms are heated by coils of pipe, or by ducts, embedded in floors, walls or ceiling, through which hot water or hot air circulates. Warm uir heat, however, is most popular with home-owners. A nation-wide survey of 16,000 families showed that nearly 50% prefer this type of central heating; about one-third radiant panel heat; only one-sixth '•cboostns radiators. ' Get Expert's Advice The appropriate system for a new home; technical dotails of equipment, installation and performance; and Its relation to the total house cons (ruction should Le studied and agreed upon at the outset by owner, heating' and building contractors and architect. Careful cooperation between building and heating contractors will save money i ami give smoother, more efficient performance of the heating plant. By planning the placement of pipes or risers ahead of time, the framing members of the building can be located to allow passage of ducts or pipes without cutting and resultant weakening of the frame of the building. To aid efficient operation of the heating system the house should be made as completely "weatherproof" as posiblc, by use of proper insulation and other measures. Weatherproof House 'Even the best heating system would have a hard time heating a tent In winter weather," stated the Small Homes Council, University of Illinois. "Use storm-sash anc storm-doors; caulk joints nrounc and outside walls. All ~of these will pay back good dividends. They wil reduce the initial cost of the heating system, reduce fuel bills and increase year-round comfort." Other primary considerations In Installing a heating system are: hot water supply; proper chimney; operating and safety controls, room thermostat; fuel delivery and stnr- age; ash removal; placement of registers In warm air heating; selection of radiators for hot water and steam.

First Street Phone 6207 —Courier News I* ho to WILMAMSTiURG COLONIAIr~Of Willinmsbure Colonial design^ the now home of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin luff man, Jr., at 1216 Country Club Drive. The story and a half house contains nine rooms. Including four icdrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, furnace room and laundry room. Of brick veneer construction, Lhe home has interior walls of plaster and hardwood floors. Wall-to-wall carpeting is used in the living room, entrance hall and dining room. Both bathrooms are of tile. A feature of the house is the Inrge entrance hall with open stairway. Prom a four by eight-feet entrance, which has rubber tile on. the floor, a step leads to I he carpeted entrance hall. A 30-inch colonial paneled dado is used in the living room, entrance hall and also follows the stairway to the upstairs hall. The living room includes a fireplace, which has imported marble man- tel and hearth. The front door is framed in a typical colonial entrance with sidelights. The large porch Is located on tlie south side of the house. A hot-water heating system that utilizes recessed convectors is used. "lush Door Is Like Desk Top; All Wood Finishes Suitable To understand what R "flush • ioor" is. think of a desk top. Be- idea size and shape, the only dif-: ercnce in apjjearance Is that both ides of a flush door are faced with attractively grained hardwood vein ers. Flush doors, like most desk tops, *re made of hardwood plywood. 3oors of this kind are being used u homes to a steadily increasing extent. The intrinsic beauty of wood ve- icer is one reason flush doors are o well-liked. For maximum smooth- icss. flush doors are belt-sanded at he factory. This enables the homeowner to select any method of wood Mulshing—wax, lacquer, stain and .'arnish, shellac or paint. Flush doors resist sagging, warp- .ng and buckling.Plywood gains ;hese qualities from its cross-grain construction, tn which the grain :>f one layer of wood runs at right angle. 1 ; to the grain of adjacent layers. Some Hush doors have solid cores Mid some arc the hollow-core type. Hollow-core doors are as much HS 40 per cent lighter than standard panel doors, which have recessed surfaces instead of being entirely flat and smooth. Despite its name, a hollow-core door is not completely hollow. Interior construction of en consists of many small compartments, permitting the door to he light, in weight without any sacrifice of strength or durability. Flush doors are easy to clean- There are no dirt-catching moldings as there nrc in panel doors. Wood veneers of handsome grain and texture are needed only for the surfaces of a flush door. Because interior sections can be made of less utEracUve but equally durabl c woods, manufacturing costs are kept low. Flush doors L are Iti tlie sami price raiiKC as panel doors of com parable quality.
