Answer: 
Its direct wired so you need to understand what size wire to use and what size breaker to install. It doesn't use much current so I used 12 gauge wiring on a 20 Amp 220 breaker. Also it does not come with a thermostat so you will have to buy a line level thermostat and wire it in. I am using a relay on mine so my thermostat can turn it on and off

This unit is designed to be hardwired. Most anything can be modified to function differently but if you want a plug in heater, there are plenty of them to choose from.

It does take electrical skills AND additional parts to install. Check your local codes and contact an electrician if you cannot do the job yourself. I've done my own work but I'm a retired electrician.

Answer: 
Yes. It does not come with a cord to plug into an outlet. You have to run electrical cable to the heater using the correct gage which is connected to a correctly sized circuit breaker that supplies the correct voltage. You can make a run from another heater depending upon the gage of the wire to the existing heater and the current load of the circuit or go directly to the circuit breaker box and install Read More
Yes. It does not come with a cord to plug into an outlet. You have to run electrical cable to the heater using the correct gage which is connected to a correctly sized circuit breaker that supplies the correct voltage. You can make a run from another heater depending upon the gage of the wire to the existing heater and the current load of the circuit or go directly to the circuit breaker box and install another circuit breaker. If the supply cable has to be run in an exposed area, then the cable needs to be protected by perhaps conduit, depending upon where it is.
You will need what is called wire nuts or twist on wire connecters of the correct size and mounting hardware--either screws or nails, wire strippers to strip the electrical wire, a screwdriver, a drill and bit or bits, and a measuring tape, at least. You will also need to know how to correctly connect the electric supply wires to power and to the heater. To do the job correctly, you should be familiar with the electrical code in your area. There may be a requirement in your area to obtain a permit first and have it inspected when finished. Read Less

Hello,

These heaters do not have a cord that plugs into an outlet, they are 'hard wired' to either a 120 or 240 volt electrical power supply line inside the wall.

Answer: 
4.17 Amps, specifically (usually rounded to 4.2 Amps). Pretty much all 240V electric baseboard heaters use 2.1 Amps for every 2-feet of heating element contained in them (keep in mind that the very small units under 3-feet in length do not usually have OVERALL lengths that correspond with the HEATING ELEMENT length--a 30-inch unit is usually 24-inches of heating element and a 24-inch unit is usually Read More

There are 2 amperage ratings on 240 Volt electric baseboard heaters. There's the momentary "inrush" amperage (higher when you first turn on the unit ("fire it up") and then there's the more constant, lower amperage rating once it gets "up and running." The 4.2 Amp rating is the INRUSH (very brief) usage...the constant running amperage is about 3.6 (the "running" amperage, after the HIGHER initial inrush amperage, drops 0.3 Amps for every 2-feet of heating element).

Answer: 
A Cadet 1000 Watt baseboard heater running on a 240 Volt circuit will draw 4.17 amps. For future reference, to calculate the Amp draw of a heater, simply divide the wattage of the heater by the voltage of the circuit. (ie 1000 Watts / 240 Volts = 4.17 Amps)

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Quality Baseboard Heater (This is an update to a previous review.) The first heater I ordered came with a paint blemish on the front of it, so I returned it. I ordered another and was told that it would be inspected, I understood before shipping. The second heater came with bent and miss-fitting parts plus a raised bump on the left end on the top. I returned it. I ordered a third heater and it was supposed to be inspected before shipping. It came with the left cover plate screwed on to the lower part which was not correctly placed on the heater, unequal gaps near the left and right cover plates near the top, and a raised bump on the top left, so I returned it. I called Cadet and told them about the problems I was having in getting a good heater and sent them pictures. They sent me a heater free of charge that was supposed to be inspected thoroughly. It came with two of the fins on the element bent. I called Cadet and sent more pictures. I was told that I could bend the fins to make them straight. I have included some pictures. None of the problems with the heater were caused by the shipper. To put a screw in the mounting holes you can't hold the screwdriver straight on but have to hold it at an angle so it looks like you can't use slotted screws. I am used to old fashioned quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good directions made it easy to install -even heat This product is great - I studied the directions and watched the online video and it took me only 45 minutes to install - it is quiet and makes a nice even heat - I did put it under a window and a pro friend said that makes a huge difference October 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised great product Works great. I have no ideal what blemishes others have talked about mine is great. Heats the small room real well the 2000 model is on sale so im ordering another one. I direct wired it to a relay and am controlling it with a zwave thermostat connected to my iris system. Have noticed that some people make the mistake of connecting it to 110v and then complain that it doesn't get hot. Have also seen complaints about odors as with any heather it had a smell for a day or two until it burned in now it is orderless. Just remember its direct wire and you need a thermostat March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Heater, Great Price! Great heaters, easy to install. You can't find heaters like this for this great price. I ordered 3. You do hear a slight clicking noise when they are warming up. I didn't notice it until night time when the house was silent. It doesn't last long, but a lil annoying for a light sleeper like myself. But for the price, I still gave them 5 stars. March 24, 2015
