No, I'm talking a large drop, like from 240v to 160v. I'm not talking about drops due to resistance in the wiring. I've seen this happen before on baseboard heaters when someone wires one of the...

I'm not sure you are understanding it right when you say "a home needs to breathe". What it means is the house wrap along the outside of walls needs to let air through so if there is any moisture...
