Why do people with
hard-to-heat rooms
turn to electric heat?

It's pure and simple

Electric heat is the clean, modern heat—no flame, no fumes. It's a
snap to install—costs less, too—because it's more compact and needs
no flue. And only electric heat is 100% efficient; the heat is created

right where it's used. It's also economical. You can buy an attractive,
low-operating-cost unit for as little as $35-$40 (plus thermostat and
installation). And we're talking about a unit that can turn a 12' x 20'

polar region into a tropical delight. Just dial the warmth you want,
and you get it. Give us a call. We'll send an Edison Heating Specialist
to discuss equipment, installation, and operating cost with you. No
obligation, of course.
