Sample text

In operating this system, it was necessary to heat the floor surface to 160 degrees in order to get 85 degrees to our living room carpet. In the kitchen, which had an asphalt tile floor, we needed 95 degrees which was not only uncomfortable on our feet, but sometimes softened the tile so it got rough. Fortunately, we had originally designed the system with separate runs to the boiler from each room so we were able to adjust the temperature with separate circulating pumps in some of the areas. To this day, my wife still doesn't like radiant heating in the floor.

The convicts in the top cells were so mad at the heat that they were taking their bed springs apart and throwing them to break the windows. Of course, the ones at the bottom were shivering. We recommended a solution by running Page 14 Figure 2-1 Dirty fan 10% capacity. a return air duct from the ceiling space down to the intake and blowing the air out at a lower level to get circulation. We also tested the heating system which consisted of cast iron coils supplied with steam from the boiler plant.

When I got downstairs, I had to buy a man's shirt because the dirt had broken loose from the duct and Page 9 covered a nice white shirt with black spots. At that time, that shirt cost me a days work. In 1941, I was asked to go with a company in Cleveland that was building a one-million square foot air conditioned plant in Indianapolis to manufacture Norden Bomb Sights. It was necessary to control the temperature in this plant within two degrees because the parts made in one section of the plant would not fit if the temperature varied more than two degrees.
