I don't know, but I would be surprised if it would get very warm at all.  
The 1.5kVA rating is for 24 hrs/day, 365.25 days/year continuously.

Up till now, I've been working with neon sign transformers and the PT 
has just been sitting in my garage for the past year.   I've finally 
decided to take the step up in power and now I'm working a current 
limiting variable inductor and a gap system that can handle the PT.
