“The subjects of warming and ventilating, although in themselves simple, still deal with things and motions which are impalpable and invisible, and must be studied in their principles to be understood at all. Where the bodily eye can see nothing the mind's eye must note important processes. The peculiarity of the subject is proved by the fact of so many distinguished architects and engineers failing signally in undertakings to warm and ventilate.”- Neil Arnott.
