Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Tueidov, October 6, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Heating Discussed SHOW HOMES UNDER CONSTRUCTION Beauvais Place will have a gracious array of archways, as seen on these two entries i n the 1970 parade of Lethbridge show homes. Shown under construction earlier this summ er are homes being built by Henry Homes Ltd. and Hormoth Construction (Nelson In Canada the most common heating methods is with forced warm air. A blower at the heat source sends warm air through large pipes called duels leading to hot-air registers in each room. This displaces the cold air which travels through mid- air returns to the furnace. Fuel is a matter of choice: in Alberta and Saskatchewan gas is most commonly used; the other provinces favor electricity is gaining in pop- ularity. A forced warm-air sys- tem has great versatility: it can be used for zone control, air conditioning, air purifying and humidification. Costly changes must be made n some systems to add these extras, so choose one de- signed to accommodate them. C'iher systems used in Can- ada are hot-water heating, in which a boiler provides hot wa- ter for radiators, convectors or baseboard units. Air circulation is weak aod drapes can be a problem. Gravity heating works on Die principle that .warm air rises and cool ah1 falls. The heating setup is the same as the forced-air system except there is no blower. Gravity heating is suited to small compact houses where all the rooms are fairly close to the basement ftav nace. With radiant heating, wlrere electric cable is embedded in ceilings, floors or walls, there's no visible evidence of a heat- ing system. Air circulation is weak find the absence of duct- work makes future central cooling impractical. And if the heating comes from the floor, large carpets are inadvisable as they block the warmth. Also in use are va- rious freestanding or wall- mounted area heaters some with fans and-or thennGstats; electric baseboard units, each controlled by its own thermo- stat; bathroom heaters, and in- frared devices for sunroom or patio. Finally, there's the coal- or wood-burning fireplace in which ninety per cent of the heat goes up the chimney. Your beating system is only as good as your insulation. There should be six inches of roof insulation for electric heat- ing; four for other types.
