If you have gas forced air furnace, I'd consider getting a Hot Dawg or the like, much cheaper to run, but then if you don't need it a lot the electric will be cheaper to buy and install.

I run mine off the fuse for my AC. Once summer rolls around I flip out the wires.  Definetly buy the bigger unit.  Granted my place is insulated but bigger is better in this case.

I don't remember what gauge wire I used for the a/c (18 years ago)..although I don't think I would have run 8 gauge..

well heck.. the 8/2 wire will run just as much as the unit....(or more depending on where I want to place the heater).

8/2 will work as long as it has a ground wire in it.
