Th Key to th Situation Th
Are you a coal-Mil aviator?
Does the annual struggle to
keep your coal bills down
serve to keep you "up in the
air" financially? With old
fashioned heating the owner
exhausts his patience and
coal-pile not in the hope
of warming all rooms and
halls evenly.but to drive the
heat to some chill, exposed
rooms. Such attempts lead
only to overheating one or two inside rooms bringing added
discomfort and fuel-waste.
Radiators ilB oilers
have raised the standard of home com
fort, have brought about the perfect
automatic control of indoor tempera
ture and relieved the household of dirt
and drudgery. Unlike stoves or hot-
air furnaces, IDEAL Boilers and AMERICAN Radiators are made upon
the unit or sectional plan, so that if the building or rooms are enlarged,
extra sections or parts may be readily added. The outfit thus lasts forever.
Next to heating efficiency and fuel economy, the vital point in a boiler's construction is the
method of joining the sections or waterways. IDEAL Boiler nipple connections are all
metal, and their absolute tightness is not affected by expansion or contraction, fire, rust or
corrosion so far as we can tell after 17 years of test, they will remain perfectly tight for 50
asBssv mm m . . 1 a
years or more, tracked or gasket joints maae up witn ruDDcr, asDcsios, paper
or composition washers are not used in IDEAL Boilers. There is nothing about
t IDEAL Boilers or AMERICAN Radiators to warp, loosen, rust or corrode.
Consider the fact that you can use any of the cheaper
grades of fuel in an IDEAL' Boiler, and that you will
burn less of it You not only get double the volume of
heat from the fuel, but the building will be uniformly,
healthfully warmed and ventilated in every part, and it
will be infinitely cleaner.
IDEAL Boilers and AMERICAN Radiators put In OLD
buildings as easily as in new farm or town you get
your money back if you sell, or higher rental to cover cost
