Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1919 edition. Excerpt: ...Family room.......... 35 190 1350 35 60 56 Family bedroom....... 33 66 1098 25 50 38 Alcove................ 15 120 504 17 50 26 Guest room........... 25 128 1521 27 50 41 Chamber............. 18 125 1350 22 50 33 Servants' room........ 18 153 810 22 55 34 Hall.................. 24 147 945 24 50 36 Bathroom............. 8 46 480 10 70 17 Totals in Sq. Ft........ 413 644 culated on the basis of the 2, 20, and 200 rule. The dimensions of the different rooms are not given, as these factors are easily obtained by measuring the rooms. The table is given as a guide to be followed by the estimator in calculating the heating surface necessary in each room. The "range of temperature" is assumed to be 70--that is, interior air to be 70, with an outside temperature of zero. The figures given are adapted to the use of any standard make of cast-iron radiator. Another rule, which may be termed a "rule of thumb," giving an appi-oxlinate estimate of the sq. ft. of radiation required for heating various types of buildings, is condensed in Table 14. The numbers given represent the cu. ft. of air in the room or building that 1 sq. ft. of radiation will heat. These numbers are to be used as constants for dividing the cubic contents of the room, the quotient showing the sq. ft. of radiation required. TABLE 14 Approximate Heating Capacity of 1 Sq. Ft. of Radiation. Cu. Ft.
