If you plan on building or remodeling...
plan on modern ELECTRIC HEAT

When you build a new home or add on a new room, you

naturally want everything to be new, clean and modern.
That's why you should insist on flameless electric home
heating—the truly modern kind _of heat. It's quiet,
trouble-free, as clean as electric light itself. And it can
give you that wonderful exclusive feature—individual
room temperature control.

An Edison-Approved Electric Heating Contractor will be
glad to tell you all about comfortable, moisture-retaining

electric heat. He'll figure your operating cost, and
there'll be no obligation. And right now, your contractor's
offering a $100 trade-in on your old heating system.
Call him for an electric heat survey, or mail the coupon
