Sound Control Also Vital for Air Cooling CLEVELAND, Ohio—Today's air conditioning engineer must pay attention to the problem of "sound control" as well as the other problems of controlling temperature, humidity, motion and quality of indoor air. This is what Warren Blazier, The Coleman Company, Inc., Wichita, Kansas, told 200 engineers attending the Second Annual Technical Conference of the National Warm Air Heating and Air Conditioning Association in Cleveland. "Customer satisfaction is no longer gained strictly upon the relationship between BTU's comfort and cost," he said, "but is conditioned more, and more by a diminishing tolerance for the noise associated with manufactured •weather." Blazier credited current architectural residential design trends toward open planning end compact "living-machine" type housing as being at the lop of the list of factors which have created a need for better noise control in air conditioning. "Healing and air conditioning appliances are now found in closets, alcoves and utility rooms in the mids 1 . or adjacent to most sensitive living areas," he stated. "System noise is commonly shot right at Die easterner from straight through air returns and short stub- duct outlets." But, because space is at a premium this architectural trend is one which the Industry must accept, he said. It ha.s no other alternative but to find ways to tit Its air conditioning products into the space assigned and engineer into them the ingredients for c|uiot,< unobstrusive performance. Blnzier said that a second contributing . factor to the problem was the producing of more and •more compact equipment to fit the few square feet of space grudgingly assigned to it by the architect or builder. One result of this Ircmi to compactness has been to raise the speed of smaller size blowers In order to obtain the necessary performance. "Increase in the blower speed may be one way to get performance in a compact unit, but it's hardly the way to do • it quietly," he said. "In my opinion," staled Blazier, "the most acute noise problem in residential heating or cooling installations today is a result of the commonly used, cost-saving, through-the-wall short return air duct. Even potentially quiet equip- ment is severely penalized in installations of this type." "The industry needs a 'noise criterion' which will reasonably predict the range of householder reaction," Blazier advocated. "It cannot be the same as that developed for commercial application because the attitude and environment of the home occupant is different and his reaction to system noise much more critical,!' he said. Blazier stated that a set of "annoyance contours" have been recently proposed which are believed to describe the "level and shape of audio frequency spectrum" which produces a known potential annoyance level. These contours are the result of combining the 'decibel"—the "phon"—and the 'sone"—as well as another useful concept called tho "speech interference" level into a composite description of how the human race reacts to noise. Lawns Need Special Care In Summer Hot summer months, with blazing sun and infrequent rain, call for special care of lawns and gardens. With proper assistance, a healthy garden or lawn can withstand the rigors of the "dog days." High mowing, deep watering and weed watching will save the day for the well kept lawn. Make sure your grass in watered, and not just sprinkled. Daily sprinkling fails to give thirsty plants the deep- down moisture they need. Roots crowd toward the surface to absorb the scant moisture left there by sprinkling. Soaking the lawn by leaving the hose or sprinkler on each area for 30 minutes or an hour gives the water a chance to penetrate all the way to the bottom of the root structure. Deep soaking lasts longer than surface moisture, which evaporates easily. Once a week soaking for the lawn, as opposed to daily sprinkling, also saves on your water bill. I According to C. Wj Stuart & (Company, one of the country's leading landscape and nursery firms, the beginning of hot weather is also the time to start waging war against crab grass. Pull it upright with a rake, and cut the crab grass short with a mower. Be careful to catch and burn all seeding staiks, so that they cannot take root again. Incidentally, here's a note for next year: Good seed planted thickly in the late Sign of Success Why do men ask for wood paneling in their offices when they start to make money? A leading psychologist says that wood.- suggests prestige, thus satisfies vanity. But, he says, that men, like women, when they finally "arrive" want the dignity -which they derive from the subtle atmosphere o£ well-being which natural wood gives to a room. Some of this effect is achieved through proper exploitation of texture, grain and coloring, especially in such expressive woods as Douglas fir. Man Missed Man didn't invent wood, but it's a 'mightly good thing that nature did because it is one o( man's few renewable resources. Famed Architect Frank Lloyd Wright says, "The best friend on earth of man is the tree." Probably the greatest possible use for trees is to make lumber for houses and to provide paper for books, newspapers and magazines. More than four out of every five houses are built of wood, and framed with such rugged and long-lasting dimension lumber as Douglas fir. SALE!

It provides the cheapest way to enlarge a house. Extra rooms can be finished off in an attic for a fraction of the cost of building an addition. Youngsters are enthusiastic! about their own rooms in an at- ,ic. Roll-away cavities under the low part of a roof slope make it easy to clear the deck for a big play space in the middle of the attic. Beds, toy boxes, even book shelves can be mounted on smooth rolling casters to slide into their proper places out of the way.

The opaque granules give the surface of the roofing a tough coat of rock which seals in the heavy oils of the asphalt and reduces the wearing effect of rain, snow, and 'ce. For appearance, the granules are given color through a special ceramic process. The result is a wide range of colors available in asphal! Q—Concrete spilled and hardened on slate flagstones while we were building a patio. How can the concrete be removed? A—jVIix a ten percent solution of muriatic acid, or hydrochloric acid with water. Wear rubber gloves and apply with a cloth. Rinse well wilh a garden hose. The acid is obtainable from most drug stores. Q_We're tiling a basement floor and find there are some shallow areas here and there which must be filled to give an even surface. What can we use for this? A—Professional tile installers often mix linoleum paste with plaster of Paris. Mix a small amount at a time into a putty-like substance and apply with a wide-bladed putty knife. Let the mixture dry thor oughly before putting tiles down. It will provide a firm base for the tiles which will not crack or crumble under ordinary usage. Q—We plan to install an attic fan. How can we judge the size we'll need?' A—By the number of cubic feet of air space in your home. Get an accurate estimate of this and take it to your dealer. He'll sell you a fan the proper size. Q—When our home was built, a two-inch layer of insulation was installed in the attic floor. Is this enough to give us tho maximum benefits of insulation? If not, can we install more insulation ourselves? A—Authorities on home confort agree that at least four inches of mineral wool insulation should be installed in ceilings for winter comfort and heating economy, and six inches if the house is air conditioned in summer.
