Modern houses are being designed
more and more with an eye toward
future installationsof air condition-
ing equipment, Prof. Axel Main of
the mechanical engineering depart-
ment said yesterday.
This is a reflection of the general
trend of interest in air conditioning
which has been evident in restaurant,
theatre and other commercial estab-
lishments during the last two years,
he continued. "I don't expect, how-
ever, to see as sharp an increase in
residential installations as there have
been industrial."
Undue emphasis on the addition of
moisture to air in the winter has
given the public an erroneous impres-
sion that this phase is all there is to
air conditioning, Professor Marin
said. The field actually includes the
maintaining of temperature, moisture
within an enclosure, he added.
Advertising Inc c s rt
This incorrect emphasis is partly
the result of the advertisement of
humidifying devices as air condition-
ing equipment. In connection with
this practice, Professor Marin pre-
dicted that the American Society of
Heating and Ventilating Engineers
would soon establish definite stand-
ards for the manufacture of such ap-
Few people realize what an import-
ant part correct air conditions play
in everyday comfort. Professor Marin
cited an experiment which was car-
ried out by the late Dean Paul F.
Anderson of the University of Ken-
tucky in Lexington. In this instance,
a system to clean and partially cool
the air of the city auditorium was
devised. All hay fever sufferers in
the vicinity were then invited to come
down to the auditorium and "bring
their knitting." None of the usual
coughing and sneezing of the hay
fever patient prevailed at this gath-
In industry as well, air condition-
ing is an important aid . The Parke-
Davis Company, for example, has
been able to fill certain cartridges of
drugs on muggy as well as clear days
by maintaining constant and suit-
able atmospheric conditions.
Kills Summer Heat
Better ventilating systems can, be
obtained in residences simply and
cheaply with the application of a
few scentific principles, in the opin-
ion of Professor Marin. For ex-
ample; oppressive summer heat in
houses can be cut down by leaving
attic windows open.
The addition of moisture to the air
in order to maintain proper humidity
in a room is necessary because of the
difference in absolute moisture re-
quired to produce the same relative
humidity at different temperatures.
Air on the outside at 20 degrees
fahrenheit contains about two grains
of moisture per cubic foot, while air
inside, at the normal room tempera-
ture of 70 degrees fahrenheit and 50
per cent relative humidity contains
approximately four grains per cubic
foot of air.
From five to ten gallons of water
per 24-hour period must be added to
outside air to obtain proper humidity
in the winter. The ordinary house-
holder believes that a quart of water
is ample for this purpose. Experi-
mentation has revealed that this lack
of moisture may be responsible for
many of the common colds.
