I have a Wave #3 just to heat the living room area while watching tv. It is 4 years old and has lost about 1/2 it's capacity. Olympic says the element has gone south because I never covered it when not in use. When originally installed I had not heard that they should be covered.

Has anyone come up with an idea to reclaim the element short of sending back for replacement?

Question Clue me in please..

We were just in the Adirondacks 2 weeks ago, hard frost each night. 30-40 degrees. Used the furnace at least 4 nights straight set @ 65.In the morning, 12.5 in the 4 year old interstates. Other than the covering on the interior walls is there any other reason why the classic seems to stay warmer with less furnace? Set at at 65 the furnace cycles about twice every 1/2 hr for about 5-8 min. We have a 30w solar that usually brings the batts back to 12.8-.9 on a sunny fall day. Has any-one actually Fluked the fan while on, what was the draw?

The whoosh-whoosh from the outlets has never been a problem. So I guess we just be lucky.

I'd say you are doing pretty good with those numbers! We haven't actually tested to see what the furnace blower draw is...but I'd be curious. Part of it might also depend on how humid it is as to how well the heat is retained. We like to sleep cool so we have plenty of cozy bedding, but that darn floor gets awfully cold! Nice to have it warmed up a bit in the AM when we crawl out.

My wave 6 works well, but tends to shut itself off while running on the low setting for some reason. Otherwise, I am satisfied with the heater.
