Fuel savings will pay (or the , t in three or four years and the homf owner will have a cash benefit of s;;ch sr.vhigs yearly thereafter, the Construction Research Bureau said. Bigest single saving comes through insulation with mineral wool. Experience of homo owners as well a:; scientific tests show one-third to one-half less fuel is burned when a house K properly insulated. Tn existiiiR homes the practice is to blow thf walls full of mineral wool ami place n four-inch layer of the material in thf attic.
