I'm currently doing NG burners, but I'm going to dabble with some electric heating soon and this is the unit I plan on getting.
Good point. I'll give them a call and see if they stock it first.
I'm able to do some basic wiring for the house and install/replace outlets and breakers. For my basic knowledge running a 120V keggle is pretty straight forward. Switching over to 240V and hooking up PIDs and SSRs is something I feel comfortable with so long as I research what I'm doing. In essence I think electrical setups can be very complex but I'll be trying to keep mine relatively simple to avoid confusing and killing myself.
