MAIN MIAKIR TYPICAL—Here's what you find at the main panel in many homes. If you have an obsolete "main," similar to the one at the left, you have enough "housepowcr" only for lights and a few small plug-in appliances. A minimum installation (center) will permit the addition of a couple major, 240-volt appliances, such as an electric range and a water heater—but that's all. A "main" like the one at the right will take care of almost any usual combination of electrical xuplinnces, with the exception of central air conditioning and electric house heating.

Most homes built since 1940 have 3-wire (230240 volt) electric service. However, few of these homes have three wires which are large enough to provide sufficient "housepower" for modern living.

This is especially true in very old houses, where piecemeal wiring extensions have been made over the years. There is one indication that vour electrical main is completely obsolete, which is easily checked: if the Underwriter's label on your main fuse box or circuit breaker panel is marked "Form 30," you do not have enough "housepow- cr." If you can't find the Under-' writer's Label, or find that it has a form number other than "Form 30," you can get a rough idea of your home's total "housepower" by comparing your main panel with the accompanying illustrations. What To Do About It The most reliable method of determining what is needed lei increase the capacity of your electrical main is to call in cither a reliable electrical contractor, or a representative ol the power company. They will recommend one 1 or more of the following procedures alter curelully checking your present service entrance wires and equipment: Replace main service entrance wires with larger ones. Replace old, outmoded main fuse box or circuit breaker panel with new, modem equipment of larger capacity. A minimum of 100 Amperes is recommended. Retain present main panel and install second main panel, to increase total capacity. Replace old - fashioned meter with modem, enclosed type>.

K^^U ^m«^ ^^^^^^^^ O M E I M P IDEAS AND PROJECTS PRESENTED O V E FORTY ALGONA E H T BUSINESS FIRMS Kitchen With Built-in Gas Appliances The most wanted and the most practical improvement in today's kitchen is the built-in features of all the major appliances. In the picture above is shown how versatile a kitchen can be with a built-in gas oven and burners. Completely separate units, each has its convenient location to accessibility by the homemaker. Algona's appliance dealers all have such built-in units to meet everyone's particular taste and needs. Tomorrow's Home Lighting How will the home of tomorrow bo lighted? Many homes for many years will be less well lighted than the best lighted ones are today. The better lighted ones will be more subtly lighted than today's. Emphasis on the need for adequate lighting will have been replaced to a degree by stress on quality of lighting. There will be luminous ceilings, luminous walks, greater use of colored light, greater flexibility in I'ontrol or light, greater use of dramatic lighting effects. Prevailing light sources may safely be predicted as still in use, perhaps supplemented Joy electro- luminescent panels. Incandescent lamps may be more efficient as metallurgical research discovers filament metals having higher melting points than tugsten. Fluorescent lamps may be lighted by high frequency radiation. Or the secret of the firefly may be dis- covered, making possible the creation of light chemically. Whether or not any of these .things come to pass, it may be assumed that home lighting of the future, instead of being an afterthought as it is largely today, will be designed into bouses by architects and constructed into them by builders. Thus, the best lighting then will be an integral part of the home, designed to contribute not only to its functional aspects, but also to its architectural and decorating schemes. By the curly 1960's, it is estimated that the nation's annual consumption of electricity for home lighting is expected to reach 70 billion kilowatt hours, or double that of the early 1950's.

YOUNGSTOWN SINKS & CABINETS FRIGIDAIRE BUILT-IN OVENS WESTINGHOUSE WATER HEATERS Beecher Lane Appliances Provide "Working Space" For Electrical Housewares Dozens of "plug-in" appliances are used in modern homes to make lite for the family easier. Mixers, coffee grinders, knife .sharpeners, blenders, coffee-makers, toaster, electirc skillets, and many more small appliances are used in all rooms of the house, although most frequently in tlv.; kitchen,, recreation room and iciiitii.v room." When making changes in any of these areas, it's a good idea to include a place for those electrical helpers in your planning for future convenience. Most electrical housewares can be stored close to the point of use, provided there also is sufficient "house-power" to operate them efficiently and conveniently. In modern homes, it should be possible to use several small appliances .simultaneously, without overloading the electrical system. (Overloading causes "blackouts' — which warn of overheated wires and trouble ahead.) A modern and highly efficient method of increasing electrical capacity for several "plug-in" appliances at one location is to have one or more three-wire circuits installed. These should serve the convenience outlets into which you wish to plug more than one appliance at one time. In effect, this arrangement divides the two openings of each convenience outlet between two different circuits. It allows you to When planning kitchen improvements, it is well to remember that electrical helpers, like the mixer, need a place to work and plenty of HOUSEPOWER.

In this way you could, for example, barbecue a chicken or broil a steak, make coffee, blend I'ruitjuice cocktail and warm the rolls, all at. one time and in one place. You would plug in the electric broiler (1,650 watts) and the blender (250 watts) into the upper halves of two outlets; the coffee maker (1,000 watts) and the roll warmer (100 watts) into the lower halves — and still have capacity to spare.
