'" BLYTHEVILLB (AM.)' COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, APRTL M, IWI Carrier Survey 7e//s Points on Air Cooling Abovt 125,000 families will be buylrw complete home air condi ttonlnr systems for the first time In tfatir liven this year. Many of them will find them Mlves as confused about such de talk at heat gain, proper air dla tribution, and balancing a system AS though they were to go out an attempt to buy an atomic reactor. The surest guarantee of a satis factory system is that happy com bination of a good manufacturei and a good local dealer. Carriei Corporation, for example — whosi founder, the late Willis H. Carrier developed the first modern air con ditlonJng system in 1902 — repre •enta some 53 years of accumulat ed experience. This company also developed the first dealer organ! Mtion in the air conditioning In duitry in the early 1930's. But since all of the good brand ud dealers can't be picked out, b;, name, here are some things to look for and questions to ask when yoi go to buy your central air condi Boning unit. Variety of Unite Ttwt are three basic types oi volte — the year-round models which heat and cool the entire borne from one cabinet and are dc aigned primarily for new houses or replacement of worn-out furnaces ,th* conversion, units for adapting forced warm air furnaces to year round air conditioning; and the summer air conditioning units which are installed independently of the heating system. If your deal •r doesn't carry all three he mny not have the most, practical and •oonomical model for your home, Survey and Estimate A food deaier wm ask to vis I your house, will draw a rough floor plan with dimensions, rooms, and windows indicated, estimate the cooling load, and sketch in the ducts before giving you an estimate of cost. A satisfactory estimate cannot be made over, the telephone. Qufoi Operation Ask to see a unit operating, and tout your ears as to its quietness. Humidity Control An air conditioner's cooling coll lowers temperature and reduce; humidity simultaneously. However, Borne systems will adequately control temperature but will not control humidity. Although the amount of surface on the cooling coll Influ- •noM thia, the basic factors in food humidity control arc proper tiling of 'the unit and design of the system. When the air conditioner to too large for the itmouut of heat to be removed, It will turn itself, off a good portion of the time and moisture will re-evaporate from the cooling coll. When you're shopping for comfort, this Is an Important point to check with your dealer, Sturdy Construction A central air conditioner should be expected to last a good long time and this requires sturdy construction- of the cabinet as" well us of other parts. While you can't be expected to tell the gauge of Ihu steel without a pair of calipers, a few taps on the cabinet can re assure you that It's of solid manu facture. Insulation The air conditioner's cabine should be heavily insulated agalns sound and heat transmission, Asl to look inside. Certain portions o the ductwork whch are exposed t non-air-conditioned spaces should also be insulated. That should help you get startei on buying your central air condi tioner. Like everything else in modern life, It may seem a littli complicated at first but pretty soon you 11 be throwing tons of ca pacity around like you do miles per gallon today. And remember It's going to mean a lifetime o comfort for you. Grunting Pays Worm Seekers SOPOHOPPY. Fla. M*)—Grunting earthworms is ti profitable business in muny sections of Florida.
