measure each room you want to heat. multiply the length x width, this will give you the square footage of the room to be heated, multiply that by 10 and that is the number of watts needed to heat the room using 220/240v baseboards.

### Smell

the heat may be affecting the unit's paint. normally the oil used in manufacturing burns off the first time the unit is used. maybe the proximity of the element to the case is too close.
