The Advantages of Steam Heat

Rudy Member Posts: 482
"It is a lamentable fact that usually, instead of presenting to the air to be warmed a sufficiently large surface of moderately heated metal, a very small surface of iron is presented, which is heated to such a degree as to scorch the air, producing the disagreeable odor so well known to those who frequent churches and other places where the so called hot air furnaces are defectively constructed or not properly used."
