Efficiency of Refrigeration Is Analyzed According to officials of the local Kelvinator agency, the percentage of service calls as compared to sales, is the best Indication of the efficiency of any electrical refrig eration unit. The percentage as given for the Kelvinator, a figure arrived at by the inclusion of all installations throughout the United States, is 91. one hundreds of one per cent. "This means that there Is less than one service call per year for every Kelvinator sold, a remarkable snowing and a strlk Ing testimonial to the efficiency, of these units, the company state. A particular advantage in the Kelvinator system, which they emphasize, Is the fact'that these units are operated by air cooled compressors instead of water cooled. "The elimination of water entirely is a particular economy which eaves the householder several dollars per month lathe operating cost for the machine. This is an advantage which the apartment house owner should well consider as the Item of several dollars per unit for several units runs, into considerable money by the end of the month.

There always Is a demand for any improvement over the old methods whioh give greater convenience, comfort and cleanliness, and more efficient ser vice." Much of the public's familiarity with the virtues of oil heating, according to Johnson, Is due to the work of the OU Heating Institute, a non-profit organization recently founded to study oil heating in all Us phases and apllcatlons and to study.
