Adequate draft is indispensable to' easy tiring and thoro fuel combustion, and the heating plant is dependent upon the chimney to supply thia draft. To burn just one pound of coal requires the oxygen in'about 15 pound or 200 cubic feet of air. During severe weather a six- room house may require the' burning of 100 pounds of coal a day to maintain comfortable warmth. This means that 20,000 cubic feet of air must he'drawn thru the heating system. If the : chimney is not of correct size, or contains, awkward turns or offsets, it will not be able to create .the draft necessary to supply this huge volume of; air. For a heating plant of ordinary size, the inside area of the chimney should be at least '70 square inches, and this area maintained to the very top of the chimney, unbroken by .turns or offsets. Even tho an offset may not seriously hamper the flow of air, it will cause soot to settle at the turning point, and in duelco'urse,there may be sufficient to 'obstruct the passage. It is also important that the chamney be of proper height. It should extend at least six feet above a flat roof, and three feet .above-the ridge of a gable or hip roof. Otherwise down drafts are likely to develop which will smother the fire, or a back-pressure may be created , in the heater itself that will cause smoke and gas . t o leak into the basement. Even the most modern vapor-air heating systems · cannot overcome the draft handicaps that result from faulty chimney con- i struction. Because · of its impor- ,tance to h6me comfort, especial ; attention ' should be given to see that the chimney is correctly designed,, and that the masonry work and materials are of the highest ^quality.
