This is a 24 unit job operated by one air-cooled compressor in the basement. , In commenting on this installation the Scott-Buttner Co. states: "The acceptance by the apartment builders and owners of Electro-Kold refrigeration has been remarkable. In the year we have, handled Electro-Kold we have sold this refrigeration in over 800 kitchens of apartment houses in the Eastbay area. This is in addition to many commercial and residential installations.. "Some of the reasons for this acceptance have been the simplicity and quiet operation of Electro-Kold frost units. "The Electro-Kold corporation manufactures both air and water-cooled compressors. In this area we have used air-cooling almost exclusively because the mean average temperature of the air is about the same as the water. We have always used air-cooling where a bountiful supply of cool air is available. Air-cooling costs nothing and la not subjected to lime deposits and complicated control equipment necessary on water-cooled models. "To meet the demand for a first class apartment refrigeration box at a low price, the Electro-Kold corporation has recently put on the market a line of cabinets featuring single, back-to-back, and side-to- slde models. These cabinets are & cubic feet capacity with 7 v6 square feet of ehelf area.

Certified heating guards health, be cause it brings the proper temperature to every room In the house, 'and windows need not be kept closed to avoid disturbing the operation of the heating plant. Nq other unit of a building' requires as careful forethought as the heating system. Upon its effi-Icency depend the health and comfort of the entire family. The modern home must above all be comfortable, and comfort depends most of all upon the home's heating eauinment.
