Heat, without ventilation, becomes "stuffiness "-a lack of pure, fresh air. And you can't get successful ventilation by merely opening windows. Such a practice defeats your purpose. Ventilation should be part of the heating system to in sure successful results. Thousands have found this true with HEATING AJND VEILATING Home heating should be made safe and healthful as well as comfortable and economical. And yet thousands forget the danger of common "coal gas" or fire poison. Carbon Monoxide is a dangerous combustion gas or fire poison, common to all heating systems. It quickly pene trates through cast iron, which heat makes porous, while it is almost impossible to prevent leakage of gas through the joints and seams of a riveted fire-box. The only safe protection is a one-piece steel fire-box, made continuous and imperforate by seamless-welding, thus making gas leakage impossible. Such a fire-box is an ex clusive and patented feature of the FarQuar System.
