Anyone interested in my personal experience and knowledge here is more than welcome to contact me personally. I'd be happy to have a mature discussion on any subject matter.

Tmann, you are not a fan of electric heat. Thank you for your input. We get it

I have used this type of heat for a de-ice system in an industrial application. As the heat strips warm up, the electric properties of the strip change. Its called a self regulating heating cable. You put a source of power on these strips, and as they warm up they gradually use less energy until the design temp is almost reached. Its infinitely variable.

The system that I installed was designed to keep ice from forming.... so lets say the temperature "goal" is 45 degrees F. Nate, your temperature goal is 300 degrees F (inside the heater of course).
Why does this matter?
Because this infinintely variable heat strip must be available in different temperature ranges.....

Really, we could just line the inside of the fuselage with this stuff..... say, a heat strip designed to max out at 85 degrees.
