If $1,000 is hard to come by
—as it sometimes is — then it
may help to know that central
air conditioning can be readily
financed.
Oat Hay Be Under %\tm
One reason for this rapid
growth is that whole house air
conditioning is not nearly as expensive as many people think.
It can be installed in many moderately-sized homes for substantially less than $1,000.
Even larger homes—such as
an existing eight-room house
with a hot-air furnace and adequate ductwork—sometime* can
be completely air conditioned
for as little as $1,000.

So says Edgar V. Hall, execu-1

Improvement Council, pointing
out that interest in improving
existing homes by remodeling;
—to increase livability. enhance !
appearance and upgrade value
—is growing apace, and for
some very sound reasons. By
concentrating on a new kitchen,
an extra bath, a room addition
or modernization, homeowners,
find that they are now able to
have, in existing homes, the
luxury features and advantages ]
that they have always longed
for—and that usually come only
with a new home.

The monthly payments for
such improvements are substantially less than for payments on
a new home. In addition, the
family avoids the ordeal of
moving.

How to make

MOOB. IfftTfA
Nobody likes house cleaning
Yet everyone likes a clean
house.
So how do you have your cake
and eat it, too? Easy. Just live in a
house with electric heat.
You won't get rid of the housecleaning, but you'll sure do a lot less
of it. With electric heat, there's no
fuel to burn, so there's no soot, less
dust. Your house—your floors, rugs,
walls, drapes and furniturestay cleaner, longer,
So you clean less, have less
to clean.
You stav more comfortable,
too. Electric heat is even and
steady. There are no drafts, and
you can control the temperature in each roonu
If you're planning to build or remodel, make a
clean start. Find out more about electric heat
