A watt is a watt, so you're right. 1500W from 120 or 240 is the
SAME amount of heat; you're right.
I suspect you're being punished for your multiple posts. Don't
Unless your cottage is tiny though, I wouldn't think 1500W would
do a whole lot to keep much heat flowing but then you didn't say
where you were or what "cold" means to you. Cold here is below
zero. Cold in Fl is more like 60 above zero.

: He went on and on, but I was blocked on the numbers. Does
anyone know about
