By this saving you earn 50% to 65% on your investment in Hoffman No. 2 Vacuum Valves the first year. At the end of the second, you have your original investment back-plus a profit. Every year (after this) you make your self a gift of approximately $5 a radiator. Hoffman No. 2 Vacuum Valves make radia. tors hot in 15 minutes (not an hour). Radiators stay piping hot 3 hours (not 30 minutes) after fires are banked. Hence greater comfort be sides this saving of 1/3 of the coal or oil you formerly used.
