Sorry to go off the topic but I was wondering if anyone could help me with a 
transformer problem.I ordered dupla heating cables from J.P. burleson a while 
back but they had no transformers left so I brought one from an electrical 
supplier.The employee there told me a 120V primary to 24V secondary at 40VA 
would do the trick but I tend to doubt it because it looks awful small.The 
cables are the 100 and 60 watt cables plugged into each other totaling 160 
watts.I am not sure how to convert watts to VA to tell if I would be 
overloading it.Any possible sources of online transformer sources would also 
be helpful because it didnt seem like the guy at the electrical supply store 
knew too much.Thanks.
