Yes, it is a popular and simple method to heat your home.
It is all you need to do is connect the power source to the electrical resistance. This article will provide a detailed discussion of constant, steady currents and voltages.
The result is a current I that is flowing through the resistance, R in accordance with Ohm’s Law
The power active (P) lost by this resistance is:
and then transformed into heat after an energy balance
were is time interval, is the weight of the resistance, the specific heat capacity and the difference from the initial temperature before you turn the circuit on and the temperature after you reach steady state assuming full thermal insulation of the resistance.
