    Mytee 240-120 VS Mytee 350-120 Hot Turbo Heaters

    Multiply the wattage of your unit by 3.41 per watt to calculate Btu. A standard 1,500-watt electric heater produces 5,115 (1,500 times 3.41) Btu per hour

    Electrical code recommends that you use 80% of a breaker capacity for long term use.

    Mytee 240-120 draws 20 amps with 4 switches on and 15 amps with 3 switches on. This means if you land on a 20 amp breaker (100% of use) is can still trip the breaker so you would have to reset with only 3 switches on.

    If you land on a 15 amp breaker (100% of use) it too could still trip the breaker so you would have to reduce to 2 switches on or 1200 watts.

    Mytee 350-120 operates 875 watt heater so it is way easier to plug in. Land on a 20 amp breaker and it still works at full capacity and will never trip the breaker. Land on a 15 amp breakers and if it did trip you could turn off two switches and operate the heater at 1750 watts. This is 45.3% more heat rise in both 20 amp and 15 amp environments.

    You will also find that is is way easier to plug in dual 15 amp breakers than a single 20 amp breaker. You can never tell by looking at an outlet if the outlet was made with 14 awg wire on a 15 amp breaker or 12 awg on 20 amp breakers as they both look the same. You also do not know if the customer is already operating other items on the same breaker, example lights, ceiling fan, TV, etc... This means that the 240-120 will trip the breaker about 50% of the time and will required you to reset the breaker and operate at 1800 watts. The 350-120 would hardly ever trip any breakers as it works in both 15 amp and 20 amp as each power cord is only drawing 14.58 amps.
