Nope, just taking a break. That's all folks!
If you are going to put it under a microscope, add this to the formula:
The heat produced by the motor is heat added to the structure.
I'd use 1000 watts per horsepower, as 746 watts per HP is at 100% efficiency. No motor is 100% efficient. Running a 1/2 HP PSC motor continously usually runs $30 a month at $0.10 KWhr. Pretty expensive I think for little benefit.
