Answer: 
You don't. If you are looking for a plug in, secondary heat unit, you need to buy one specific for the space to be safe. My partner is a firefighter and I have seen too many fire caused by people trying to adapt hard wire heaters into a plug style. Better to be safe than sorry.

How many heaters can I run off a 15 amp fuse? How many off a 20 amp fuse?

This question is from 30 in. 500-Watt 120-Volt Electric Baseboard Heater in White

Is there a formula I can use to calculate the number of heaters vs. the fuse amp needed. Since these units are hardwired I am worried that I could over power with a 20 amp fuse.

20 Amp breaker - any combination of heaters up to 1750 watts

Answer: 
so that is only 24 square feet, in the info for the specific heaters, it says how many square feet they heat. I would be cautious about being so close to a water source that may get splashed into the heater. I had a renter actually pour water! behind the heater when she spilled her ashtray! it burnt out the high limit and the heater broke! I could not believe it!

Answer: 
Baseboard heaters take longer to heat than wall fan heaters. Because of this, Cadet recommends a wall fan heater for the bathroom. The ideal wall fan heaters for the bathroom are the Cadet Com-Pak Bath or The Energy Plus. We have provided links below for your convenience.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A heater I want. This is the heater I want, with 30in.500W.120V. It would be better to have a switch come with it. You may see the difference between the original picture(from the ad) and my installed one. June 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quick and easy This heater was Quick and easy to install and perfect for our small room. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Electric heater The heater is excellent, fits the space perfectly and works perfect. April 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helpful helper I needed two different kinds of heaters, they are both great. November 12, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Fit Purchased to replace old baseboard heating unit during bathroom remodel. Good fit and installation was easy. Unit was packaged very nicely and arrived in great condition. Middle of summer, not much demand for heat at this point, will know more after cold weather arrives! August 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by just what we needed this was delivered quickly. we bought it for a rental property to put in the bathroom which was "cold". They are easy to install. We have used the Cadet brand many times to warm up a cooler spot in a house & they work just right for our needs. June 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good quality, nice heat output, made in USA I purchased this 30in unit to replace an incorrectly installed 220 V unit the previous homeowner installed on a 120 V circuit. I purchased a white 30" 750W unit. It puts out nice heat output. I wired a thermostat to the endplate of the unit, so it is the only one on the circuit. The paint/powdercoat is very thick and durable, and the metal seems very rigid and thick. This was not available in my store, so it was drop shipped from the manufacturer. The shipping packaging was very poor (4 "L" shaped cardboard pieces straped to the factory box) but arrived in perfect shape. The heater did make some noise and odor the first few heat cycles. February 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No complaints I have had this installed in my bathroom and it's keeps the room nice and toasty! I had electricians wire it to the fuse box and install a cadet thermostat. I can't hear it running and there was a little bit of an odor when it was first kicked on! Smelled like burning paint, other than that, awesome. I also have a two year old and the unit doesn't get hot to the touch, a major bonus! February 11, 2014
