With air as coolant in the 10 KW space heater, the suggested narrow range of
useful reactor temps is more easily achieved - compared to water or heat
transfer fluid. The mechanics of moving air are simpler, as is the transfer
of heat to the air - compared to liquids.

Sounds like the 2.6KW element heats until temp and reaction achieved, then
the fan starts and electric heater element stops, fan air holding reactor at
proper temps.
