And ft room air conditioner, like most other modern appliances, is a piece of equipment you'll be enjoying- for several years - not just a few months; so you'll want to know as much as you can about not only its original cost, but also its operating cost and the proper size to buy in ordi.-r to get peak efficiency. Tha job of selecting a room air conditioner has become relatively easy because of the number of "name brands" sold by the many reliable dealers here. Therefore*, the proper sine and the particular st.ylin.R- best suited to blend in with your present home furnish Inc. appear to be the important factors next for your consideration. This word of advice from a recent issue of McCnlls Magazine may be of help to you in selecting the air conditioner best suited for your needs: "Although a window air conditioner is extremely easy to install and operate, it is an appliance you should buy from a dealer of proved reputation on sales and service. The units come in four sixes: 1'3, l!2. 3 '4 and i horsepower. But the size you need is not. governed by the size of your room alone. You must consider the climate in which you live how well your house is insulated, the exposure of the room to be cooled. "Be sure to have competent advice on all these factors." Select Proper Size The 113-horsepower unit, available in most popular makes. Is ordinarily adequate for the job if the total room area is 200 square feet or less. The S-horsepower size handles approximately 300 square feet, j and the 3J4 horsepower size around I 400 square feet. For extra large rooms—one with 600.square, feet, for example—the 1-horsepower unit is required. Since even n small bedroom flOx- 10. for instance) contains over a i hundred times the number of cubic feet in a seven-foot refrigerator, and since the modern refrigerator is an almost air-tight completely-insulated "box"' it's easy to understand why a room air conditioner is going to cast you more to operate than a refrigerator. But, even at that, where else could you better spend that quarter to a half dollar than for whole day's cooling comfort afforded by that room air conditioner? Exactly how much it's going "to cost you to run your new room air conditioner -depends, of course, on all the above factors plus the climate conditions. The temperature during the day and night.
