Estimating electricity usage based on heat output?
 
I'm just wondering how I can go about estimating electricity usage
based on output of heaters... suggestions?

How do you measure the output of your heaters? That is a
non-trivial exercise. It is usually much simpler to measure
current being fed to the heaters...
