This is simply my theory, from the limited obsevation I have as a high school student. Any additional input is appreciated!
Electric heat is (and should be) one of the least used heating types you will find.

Steam, as dangerous as at can be if not respected is very efficient and effective. Well at least when compared to strip heat....
