I'm not sure what (watt? ) you're saying here.
1 Watt = 3.412 BTU/hr
1 Ton = 12000 BTU/hr = 3517 Watts
Did you mean to say "My estimate is 3,500 watts of electric resistive heat is about one
U.S. BTU ton"? That would be correct. And it's not an estimate; it's the definition of the units.
No. I stated my working estimate for watts to tons is 3500 watts is about a ton. Being off 17 watts over many thousands of watts is meaningless and within any margin of error for the various devices, generators, and delivery systems my home uses.
Why the demonstration of hostility??
