The object or intent of this investigation was to make a study of comparative costs of heating homes in the city of Brookings. Six different fuels or methods of firing of these fuels were compared in the two main categories of home heating; hot water radiators and warm air furnaces. The investigation was not intended to increase the efficiency of any specific installation. However, the efficiencies of several of the atomizing oil burners wore increased considerably by changes in the air settings which should have been made by the installer when the furnace was originally installed.
