ri. boom in oil stoves is still continuing. and people who are thinking of buying a radiant oil heater would do well to get the issue of "Shopper's Guide". which contains an easily understood report on these stoves.
The shops display such a wealth of glittering chrome objects that choice becomes a difficult matter, especially as sonic manufacturers overstate the heat output of their products.
The type of stove needed to heat rooms of varying sizes are also given, and with a guide one can get a much clearer picture of what one's money can buy.
Buy right THIS report on oil stoves has been prompted partly by the number of accidents associated with them. The fire hazards of various makes were tested. To knock over a radiant oil stove is both difficult and grossly careless, but some are susceptible to a certain amount of draught, so study this report before you purchase. It is well worth buying the right one. Once installed they are economical, and easily run.
In case of the worst happening in your home, whether through matches, coal fires, or any other form of heating, a home fire extinguisher is a wise thing to have in the house.
THE Pyrene Company, of 9 Grosvenor Gardens, London, SW.!, who manufacture extinguishers, have produced a film "Fire Safety in the Home" ( 16 mm. colour/sound) which runs for 14 minutes. and is commentated by Bob DanversWalker.
Copies of this film will be loaned to clubs, women's institutes, safety organisations. and any other interested groups.
