Phillips"St.7 Brings "Cool Developed for easy and economical adaptation io year-round air ,conditioning, this: famous brand furnace pictured above has a matching plenum atop the unit which serves as a section of,duct. In adapting to year-round conditioning, the d««ler simply lifts the plenum front cover* slips in a cooling and dehumidify ing coil, and connects it to art air-cooled condensing unit shown here in the garage. It can be placed in any convenient outside location. In many cases, this simplified conversion saves the home owner an average of $150 in adding complete conditioning in a typical home. There are several methods of cooling a home and Algona merchants are ready to discuss -the many phases with anyone who is interested. ft Harry Barton M • .g j&VOimciGGQi^^ Air-conditioning has come to mean a great deal more to all of us. Today some, 400,000 people find employment in production, distribution, and servicing of air-conditioning equipment. It is placing an additional load of almost 3,000,000 horse-power each year on the lines -of our electric utility companies. By. 1960 this annual added load should amount to as much as 5,000,000 horsepower. This means new generating stations, new transformer stations, and new distribution lines to take care ,of this growing load. Business establishments find that air-conditioning is a valuable asset not only in competition with un-air-conditioned places of business, but because of additional sales of products resort hotels, heretofore idle during long hot summers, are attracting guests in increasing quantity be- j cause of air-conditioning. Railroad, airplanes, and buses find that summer travel is increasing i because the public likes the comfort of air-conditioning. In many buildings space becomes useful only because of air-conditioning. Theaters stay open in the summer time because of air- conditioning. And, of course, from the standpoint of health much is to be said in favor of air-conditioning. People suffering from allergies, from respiratory diseases, from many forms of heart trouble find that air-conditioning is a very wise and sound investment. Social customs are changing. The family is together in the air- conditioned home much mor.e than it has been in recent years. With air-conditioning either in your hpme or in theirs, you see much more of your neighbors. Even the design of buildings is undergoing some change because 01 the ability-to have comfortable interiors without depending on natural ventilation. ..•••*'. . o: •oi o 'O Now you can enjoy o; s* o io. .. o jo. .o, ' .o o V O v •O 'O v O O O o o :o y y '6 C> v v •O with VORNADO Home Air Con The whole family'benefits when you let us install adequate air conditioning in ypur home.

V IGSB PLUMBING & HEATING Home Care And Decor Easy With Air-Cooling Modern decorating themes gain freo rein in air-conditioned homes as light, bright colors stay fresh longer and fine furnishings last longer. Conditioned air is filtered air, rtMnoving dust nnd dirt. So, light colors, which perk up a house, becomi' more and more popular. In older dwellings, colors had to be sturdy, to "wear well." Repainting, repapering, cleaning of rugs;, drapes, and upholstery were important items in the budget. Darker "sensible" colors, were musts with open-windowed, dust-catching rooms. With aii-conditioning, the opening of windows for cross ventilation is no longer essential. Windows can be placed higher, permitting furniture placement along' the walls and below window;-"; furniture arrangement is i.ask. r. DEHUMIDIFIED AIR Doors and drawers don't stick in the dehumidified atmosphere. Mildew, an other humidity problem is eliminated. Pianos and other stringed instruments stay in. tune, thanks to,the regulated moisture. content of the inside air. Excessive Heat May Be Harmful Experts State Science has shown that excessive heat can be harmful to health. It has been found, however, that just the reduction of heat by a few degrees can offset these ill effects by a perceptible amount. Any number of methods to fight sizzling temperatures are available, some cff which are more efficient than others. About the most efficient ways are (1) Continuous circulation of air about the body to remove unwanted body heat. (2) Frequent Tuesday, June 5, t9$6 Algeria pa.) Upper Pes cool baths. (3) Keeping activity at a minimum. However, most ways to fight heat require cessation of other necessary activities. One of the most efficient ways to beat the heat without stooping work or other activity is through the use of a room air- conditioner. Tests show that the room air-conditioner not only reduces the ill effects of heat but reduces other summer complaints, such as air-borne allergies, by removing 99.9 par cefit of all foreign matter including aller- gens from the incoming air. And there are pdsittve .economies, ecoriomies due to better health, ecoriomies due to iawet cleaning bills, economies by the elimination of trips to some other air - conditioned building for a few minutes comfort or to some distant place for a few week's comfort. EASIER CLEANING* In an air-conditioned home, there's far less dust and dirt which means easier housekeeping all around.
