Want to know how central air conditioning can be installed in •"oi'r home on terms within your budget? There's no.all-embracing answer, but the principles are simple enough. All existing homes can be divided into five basic air conditioning situations, according to the type of heating they now use. Your house undoubtedly falls into one of these classifications., 1. FORCED, WARM AIR HEAT IN GOOD CONDITION. If you have a forced warm air furnace in'good condition,, there's Comfortable Air! LENNOX, HEATING RICHARDSON Painters - Decorators "Inside and Outside" FREE ESTIMATES Phone 1298-J. conditions indoor air 5 ways! an easy solution. Install a conversion unit-—a piece of equipment which adapts the furnace to year- round,conditionirig. A cooling and d-ohiurtidifying coil placed in. the ductwork at the furnace outlet combines with the heating plant's fferi arid filter to provide summertime operation. Carrier's Conversion Weathermaker doesn't even require water for refrigeration. 2; .WORN. - PUT FORCED WARM AIR FURNACE. If your forced warm air heating plant is .getting to the Creaky stage, you'd better replace it with •a year-found unit. It more than slipping a conversion unit qn top'-of the old furnao* and then sliding a new furnace underneath the conversion equipment a year or two hence. x '. 3. GRAVITY WARM AIR FURNACE. ' Replacing an old gravity warm air furnace with a year-rouyd unit can be a really happy event from many points of view. You're not only getting rid of an obsolete and by;'' now undependable heating plant, and obtaining the benefits of efficient year-round air Conditioning, but you'll find that you've reclaimed a great deal of your basement. 4. FLOOR FURNACES OR SPACE HEATERS. If you, .warm your housq in winter with a floor furnace or Space heaters, you don't have a Central duct, 'system, arid this was once considered a difficult, and expensive obstacle. But new summer air conditioning equipment has been introduced which makes installation of a central comfort system economical. .The air conditioning part of the unit is little larger than a room air condition- 5. WET HEAT? Or perhaps your ,home uses warm water-or steam heat and for this reason lacks central ducts. Now you cari have ajr conditioning too.

USE OUR EASY BUDGET PAYMENTS BJUSTROM'S FURNITURE Three Large Floors of New Home Furnishings Beautiful wood Wall paneling has been considered a luxury from earliest Biblical times down' through history. Today, however, it is a luxury, within the means of any homeowner. Plywood technology has*: brought such rich woods as mahogany, oak, walnut and Korina within the' reach of countless , homeowners 'throughout the U. S. Enough walnut Plankweld to panel an average wall .'(8 x 12 feet), for example, costs ohly about $74. Formerly, even the very rich could rarely afford to panel .their walls in such woods. In addition, foresters throughout the .world have discovered great stands of trees which make certain beautiful woods especially economical. An example is Samara, a warm, mahogany- like panel with a swirly grain pattern. Cut in the jungles of French Equatorial Africa and shipped here, Samara costs only .about $24 for the average wall. Nakora •From Asia Another example is Nakora, an Asian wood in a light ton£, which costs only about $34 for the 'average wall. Pianktex panels, made of Philippine mahogany, have vertical six inch bands of irregularly cut grooves alternating with the smooth grain pattern of the wood. The result is an interesting "semi-textured", effect. Material cost for Pianktex to cover the average wall is about $33.. It is also available in factory-finished form at about $47.' Economy is also a feature t of the wall-paneling materials which resemble sea-\yashed driftwoqd. These materials, which bear such appropriate names as Surf- wood and Sea Swirl, are given their bold texture by special abrading treatment. Enough of these 'materials to panel the average wall costs between approximately $24 and $30. Pitaf Cost Is Last The greatest economy of ply— wood wall paneling, however, begins after the installation; for the first cost is the last. It is a. wall covering material which will; not tear, crack or require periodic refinishing. Plywobd .lasts, the life'of the libme.

Okay for Built-in Items Under recent clarifications 6f- the Federal Housing Administca- ' lion regulations, homeowners may obtain FHA approval under title; one for many built-in appliances. .• This' means that "kitchen rernocjel", ing can often be substantially financed by "an FHA Home Improvement loan. It is stressed, however./that the appliance ruling applies only to that are actually a permanent part of the house and not the free-standing type. '.•'.,Since many appliance's now mean a long-term investment, several experts in the kitoken planning field have recommended that the homeowner purchase the best quality—heavy gauge steel, rigid construction, the latest. in automatic controls, and a lib-' eral use of long-lasting, solid stainless 'Steel, instead of softer , metals or plated materials,, for. all doors and , working surfaces.,-.>•••.

They are especially' easy to clean. The ; stainless surface, which can t •M'llst arid is extremely durable, can usually be wiped* clean with ordinary soap, or ammonia, and .water. This is an added advantage in the kitchen. Careful Roof Care Aid to Pocketbook fcven the miri on the proverbial galloping horse can see that it's important to • check up on your I'oof at regular intervals. It follows logically, that it's just as iniDortant to make necessary repairs promptly and to use good roof coatings and other protective materials when the need for them becomes evident. Needless to say, it will save you money in the long run. If you don't know what lend of coating is best'for your, roof, consult your paint dealer or roofing cpntractor. It's wise, incidentally, to have trained roof men inspect your roof periodically So they can spot small trouble spots before they become big ones. What are roof coatings? The trade- usually groups them into these categories: asbestos roof cement, abestos roof coating, asphalt emulsion, metal roof paint and non-fibered roof coating. All are designed for specific purposes, and for this reason, care should be usqd to see that the right kind of coating is selected for the lypc of roof for which 1 it was manufactured. Hallway and Bath Require Special touch Every house has a hallway and at least one bathroom. In the hall the wiring devices needed depend upon its length. The long hall needs ceiling lights With 3-wfiy switches at each end. The small hallway may be iffi- ciently eouipocd with- only one switch. Check your needs and pirtn accordingly. The bathroom lighting is important. Many parents of young and growing children like a dim ceiling night light controlled by a wall switch with another switch controlling the bright fluorescent mirror lights. One duplex wall outlet' is most useful for electric shavers, hair driers and other modern npoliances. The type of outlet that provides a ground is best for this purpose.
