TL'KSDAV, JUNE 22, 1048 BLYTHKV1U.E (ARK.) COURIER NKWS PAGE NINK Insulation Good Remedy for Heat Use of Insulating Board Can Keep Home 10-15 Degrees Cooler i 2 Probably the best and most plea- ' ^.'IIH way to esca|x> summer heat \ •*ould be to pack U|i and head (or i UK rcfreshm? breezes of a sea-1 shore or mountain resort. 1 Unfortunately that's impractical lor mou persons. There are ways, however. In which the average home • owner can keep himself nnd bis family comfortably coril right sit i home during'the warm months. One! of the most effective and economical means is by insulating tiie house Now is a R r;od time lo do it. Proper insulation can keep a home at least 10 to 15 degrees cooler than the outside air in summer, says J. li. Blackburn, mana- scr of (he Insulation Board Insll- tino. Chicago. He iwliiis out th't such a temperature variance spt I the difference bHvveen cliscomf. and comfort when the merco \ begins climbing inlo 90's This is especially important on warm nigliis, [or a house must be sufficiently cool l[ its occupants are to have the restful sleep needed lo condition them for the full \~in« day's work. lAir most ix-rsc'Ls. daytime hrat is not nearly so oppressive and faliguiiiK when they have had Ihe benefit of » xoort night's sleep, 1,'uts Fuel C'ofcU Summer comfort, of course. Is just part of the dividends received from insulation. Blackburn points out. The other, which represents actual dollars-and-cenls savifH;, is the greater warmth of an insulated home in winter, insulation retards tiie passage of heat in either direction Hence ill cold weather it materially reduces the heat loss which normally occurs in a house. As a result It often permits fuel savings o[ as much as 40 per cent. Spring and early summer nre ideal times to insulate, Blackburn explains, since they are traditional ^ seasons for checking over homes [ and making necessary repairs am! i improvement.'!. By insulating at the [ same time, t,he home owner not only [ insures his family of more pleas' mil summer living but virtually lower fuel bill next winter.

Insulating Hoard K'firlfin A tyi« of insulation well adapted for ninny uses Is Insulating board, a modern product which doubles as a structural material. Made of wood, cane or other vegetable libers com- preispri into rigid sheets of great .strength. H Is available Hu various forms and sizes. The pre-flnlshed type, requiring no lurlher decora- live treatment, ninkes an attractive interior finish. While overall Insulation of * house is preferable, insulation of an attic alone usually produces surprisingly elective results, especially when ailemmle ventilation Is provide. Attics are the source of much heat entrance In summer and heat loss in winter. An attic can be Insulated and finished into rooms in one o]>crntion by applying In- snlatinc board over a simple Inline- work The roof rafters may be used for part of the framing. l'\>r Privacy-an<H)ayligh| Too ^ : ^ ,^" with this AUTOMATIC i ^.(^ f*< &^ ^\M\A N ^ FIOOR FURNACE retky HUBBARD HARDWARE CO; 11.1 East Main Phone 2015 Concrete Pavement your best investment in Roads W HEN a~statc's principal roads are built of portland cement concrete, highway funds are conserved because concrete roads ar« long-lived and economical to maintain.
