Funny you should mention Pennsylvania. The elements in our heaters are made there.

Yup, believe it or not they're made from parts, sheet metal, and wood in a Mennonite factory about 20 miles from where I'm sitting. Please just don't conflate us with the "Amish" heater you may see in national publications - the "two not-so-free heaters" ads I referred to in my last post.

My bathroom is 5' x 10', & it still takes a full 15 minutes to warm it up. I couldn't imagine trying to use this thing to heat any part of the house.

Upstairs stayed cool with being able to turn the thermo down. I ran the ep heater somewhere on the 3/4 to 1/2 power range and kept the downstairs comfortable. Would i buy another one prolly not.. but am I happy with what i needed it for at that time ..yes.
Ozarks wrote:Even 400-450 square feet is about 2-3 times what a 1500W space heater is supposed to be able to handle - and I take it you weren't even running the heater on full power. This is exactly the kind of case I'm talking about. The numbers don't add up, but the user experience does.
