Often electrical advice on this forum is contrary to the code and leads to unsafe installations.
Many times electricians will make an installation that exceeds code standards and follow best practice because we know what works . Example: Many shops I worked for did not use the push in terminals on receptacles because it often led to poor connections and call backs.
The code finally recognized the issues with pushin terminations and changed the code and limited their use.

All my wiring is 12 Gauge or larger and that is also in the house we built ourselves.

Those little cube heaters are absolutely ubiquitous among fiberglass trailers. In fact many eschew the furnace or the heat strip in favor of them. So they have certainly been adequately field tested!
