comment Can I have an office in my basement without egress?
@alt An office is different than a bedroom. A bedroom must have an escape route directly from the bedroom, whereas an office can use a common escape route.

comment Can I have an office in my basement without egress?
@DMoore Codes vary from place to place, that's why I started by saying that the OP should contact their building department. In my area if there's any type of habitable space in a basement, two escape routes are required.

comment Is there such a thing as an actual 60W draw LED or CFL bulb?
I think a CFL that actually draws 40W, would be equivalent to a 150W incandescent bulb (>2600 lumens). Not sure you'll find anything brighter, or even a CFL that bright for that matter.

comment Why does one outlet trip the breaker, but not others?
@DaveTweed The breaker sees all the current, whether it's drawn by the wire or the load. It's the breaker that's tripping, not the vacuum. So no matter how long the wire is, the breaker should always see the same current.

Have you checked to make sure the wires are solidly connected to the receptacle? A loose connection could be aggravated by temperature and/or current variations, which could explain the intermittent nature of the fault.

comment Is it safe to pull a continuous 18 amps from a 15 amp outlet?
Any chance you could include a photo of the nameplate on the heater, or at least the voltage and current data listed on the nameplate?
