I} Addr.w. u AL80HA REFRIGERATION Make Your Home Cool As A Mountain Retreat Your Summer Change With Doing something about the weather, instead* of just talking about it.^eems to be an age-old wotld-wide preoccupation of man. First came central heating. Now in addition to the warming of air during cool weather, we have the cooling, drying and conditioning of air during warnrr weather. And life, for the families- who have made the. warm air cool, has changed. • Keep the house cool and your salt pours freely, your crackers stay crisp, butter doesn't run and ice cream doesn't melt before it can be served, HousecleSning becomes a pleasure instead of a burden. The sticky, closed-in feeling fades away > and every one's temper is more normal. Everyone sleeps better and the day's work gets off to a brisk start. " The cooling, of- a house can be helped : along -in a number of ways: With the use of special screens to repel the sun's, rays.. With the use of color in house paints, also to repel heat from the sun (dark'colors on roofs and exterior walls absorb more heat, light colors less..) ; With awnings to shield windows and doors from the sun. With fans, small, medium and large, for floors, Windows and attics. With small air conditioners to cool a room and large air conditioners, part of the central heating system, to cool an entire house. ' People have been using fans, of one kind or another, for years. Awnings, too, are an old favorite/ And their cost is low. But the use of air conditioners in-homes has boomed since the end of World War II. In> the nine years since 1946, sales have multiplied 40 times. Last year, one million room air conditioning units were installed in homes throughout the nation, and some analysts predict that 1955 sales will increase 20 per cent over last year.' ' The secert of air conditioning's success probably lies in the fact that it doesn't just cool. .-It also washes, cleans,- purifies and dries the air. That's because the 'air we breathe today is not always clear and sparkling. While air conditioning • has reached many of the business and recreation places, it is becoming more and more a household util-s ity. ' /.._,'! No More "No Sleep" Nights Summer nights need not be sleepless nights. An electric window fan pulls put the heated air, replaces it with cool, fresh outd-jcr air after sundown. . Instead of lying awake, tossing in desperation, you relax into- restful sleep — undisturbed by noise, because fans like this are quiet as well as efficient. Fans bring you this kind-of comfort inexpensively. They don't cost much to buy — and 'cost but little to operate — and can even be equipped with a time swilc!) to turn them -off at a' .specific hour, after the hot air has been exhausted from the bedroom. Life Will A Cool Home Here's a hit'If you're about to remove a ceiling lighting fixture. Instead of sealing up the opening, install a ceiling fun that can throw considerable "light" on the subject of summer comfort.
