The Truth on the Back of an Envelope.
Hale, Bill; Pflug, Leffen
Heating a school electrically is compared with the cost of heating a school by gas or oil. Energy comparisons are shown by actual meters for a full year's operation for 73 schools (20 heated electrically and 53 heated by gas or oil). Metered "unburned" gas per square foot for a year in fuel-fired schools was about 100,000 B.T.U. while the metered energy for heating electrically was about 25,000 B.T.U. Observation of results indicate that the lesser amount of energy used by the electrically heated school was due principally to the response and efficiency of the electric heating equipment. (RH)
