Can you replace a 3500 watt heating element with a 4500 watt?

Keep the volts the same. If the breaker is 30 Amp and the wire is 10 gauge, it's okay to install higher watt up to 6000 on the heater. If the voltage is the same, it's ok to install lower watt. The element can last longer when the watt is lower.
