Talk about your bargains" Edison has again lowered the rates on electric
home heat. This time, a healthy 10% on the average. That makes 30.5%
in the last eight years. No wonder the big switch to electric heat is on.
The low rate's only part of it. Here's the rest: an estimate in writing of
operating cost. And a three-year guarantee, given when installation is
made by an Edison-approved contractor.
Look in the yellow pages of your telephone
