My house is a 1200sq ft ranch built in the late 50s. I do not have central air but window unit that run off a dedicated outlet that used cartridge fuses off the main service panel
last winter to cut down on the high gas cost I used my oven to help keep the house warm and it does a good job for about half the house. The other hlaf is where the bedrooms are at and I'm thinking that all I need to get one convection type free standing heater unit and run it off the outlet that the air conditioner used.
Of course it probably won't be a good thing to just plug it in(a 230v outlet).
I would like to know two things: 1) Is there a heater unit I can get retail that I can plug into tha higher voltage ports like I can get varoius type of air conditioners. 2) If not, is htere a adapter where I can plug a standard voltage device into a higher voltage port?
The why is that I do not want to plug it into regular outlets in the house because I jut have the original 100amp service panel and when I used my oil-filled floor heater and I can hear thre service panel humming when I'm in the basement and have that heater on. Using th 230 outlket I can turn up the higher heat settings
