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 warm weather. And life, for the families who have 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. Housecleaning 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 hpuse 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, kind* or another, for years. Awnings, too, are an old favorite. Ar.d their cost is low. But the use of air conditioners in homes Kas boomed since the end of World Wai II. In the nine years since lt»46, sales have multiplied 40 time*. Last year, one million room ait- conditioning units were installed in homes throughout the nat;on, and some analysts predict that 1955 sales will increase 20 per cent over last year. The secert of air condition.ny's success probably lies in the lact that it doesn't just cool. It also washes, cleans, purifier and drier I the air. That's because tins air 1 we breathe- today is not always clear and .-parklmg. While air conditioning has reached many of the business and recreation places, it is becoming more 'and more a household u'il- itv. !
