Mr. and Mrs. Leo Beebe,
We recommend electric heat to
anyone. It saved us money on
installation costs compared to

completely satisfied with our
Mr. and Mrs Durad Moore,
The first thing we noticed was
the even temperature between
the floor and ceiling, and the
absence of cold drafts. Electric
heat is safe for the children.
Mr. and Mrs. Harold Thompson,
Every room in the house is
warm for the first time. It is
very clean. The operating cost
is comparable to other types
of fuel. We recommend it.
Mr. and Mrs. Harold Major,
Grand Island, Nebraska
More comfortable than any
other heat. It did away with
the noise and drafts we had
from our forced air system. We
now have positive control of
the temperature in our home.
ANOTHER GOOD REASON TO HEAT ELECTRICALLY
The electricity you use for heating is measured by
the same meter that measures the electricity you
use for lighting and appliances. Thus, you re
