that sounds like too many watts of heat unless you have a 3,000+ sq ft home
Thank you and what is region climate?
You surely are oversized on the electrical strip which is only for back up heat..
and also keep in mind that the electric is back up for when heat pump fails or falls behind....so the 2 do not run at the same time in emergency heat.
20,000 watts = 68,242 btu's.
If in temperate to mild climate you only need 30 btu per sq ft.
2200 x 30 = 66,000 btu.
So with (1) 20kw you have plenty to heat whole house if needed.
I would only only use (1) strip.
you are very welcome.
Just rate service to close question and have a great weekend
