Answer: 
When I was finishing my basement I had the same question. I was able to figure it out through an internet search, but basically you need to know:
- square footage of the room you are trying to heat;
- how well the room is insulated;
- the height of the room.
Assuming an average insulation (R-11 in walls, R-19 in ceiling) and an 8-foot room, you need a heater that delivers 10 Watts per square foot. Read More

- the height of the room.
Assuming an average insulation (R-11 in walls, R-19 in ceiling) and an 8-foot room, you need a heater that delivers 10 Watts per square foot. Figure the amount of total Watts, then round up to the next available heater size.
The guidance I read also said to use a minimum of 1000 Watts in a bathroom, regardless of the square footage. I am not sure why.
Hope this helps. Read Less

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Keep a Box of BandAids Handy There's not much you can say about an electric baseboard heater. They heat fast and they're 100% efficient. They last a long time. But the basic design hasn't changed in decades, and that's part of the problem with them. The Fahrenheat models have many sharp edges that make them a challenge to install. You would think that after selling these things for decades that the manufacturer would have figured out how to round the edges. And the problem isn't just related to the installation. They get very hot and to maintain safety you will need to clean them once or twice each season which will expose you to the sharp edges again and again. I found the end caps to be very difficult to work with. They're not shaped properly and you need to use 2 hands to flex them so that the screw hole is exposed. Finding free hands to hold the screw and screwdriver makes the experience more than annoying. I was never able to remove the front cover. It snaps into place but it's held so tightly that I couldn't remove it. Cleaning will be a challenge. The latest models have a textured paint finish that may make them harder to clean as compared to the older models with the smooth paint finish. The instructions mention perforations placed at every inch that are supposed to make the installation easier. But you still need a drill to pierce the metal, and I found that the perforations didn't line up with my wall studs. I was replacing a corroded unit in a bathroom and I was constrained by the existing wiring. I used the optional built-in thermostat and wasn't impressed by that either. The knob is loose and wiggles as you turn it and doesn't inspire much confidence. If you need a radiator, this is all the you'll find at Home Depot. If there was a competing product available, I would have chosen something else. September 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid heater We needed a new electric baseboard heater for our bathroom remodel, and this puppy fit the bill nicely. It is extremely quiet and looks great. The only issue was the screw that keeps the electrical compartment lid in place; it doesn't fit cleanly into the provided hole, so it was a bit of a bear to get in place. I ended up drilling a slightly bigger hole which did the trick. Overall, a quiet, great looking heater at a great price. December 30, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Heaters. Good product. It needs more access-able mounting holes. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Baseboard 220VAC Heater Easy to install. Can be controlled with unit mounted thermostat or wall hard wired thermostat. May 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by What I expected Basic baseboard electric heater. No problems, easy replacement install. Control/thermostat is sold separately. January 28, 2014
