Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by heaterman be carful when using two on one thermostat
The old ones needed replacing and these were affordable. Nice that you can wire them from either side but cutting the wires on the heater was the only way to do so.
The wires are not color coded but when using two with the same thermostat everything has to be hooked up the same or you'll blow your thermostat (which was also brand new) found out the hard way.
Instructions a little lacking in this department and had to run multiple tests to figure this out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeWhoDat 4 ft. Cadet Electric Baseboard Heater
This is one of a few Cadet baseboard heaters I've purchased from Home Depot. These heaters work quite well, especially if your building is insulated.
These heaters are easy to install and wire. I feel they are quite a bargain and free shipping make the deal a bit sweeter.
I would recommend using a wall mounted thermostat with these heaters for ease of use, and avoiding the bend down on multiple heaters.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fred works well esy to install, instructions could be better
I actually have bought more than one of these heaters, replacing heaters that have been in my house for 40 yrs.
I only have one thing to say, one of the heaters I bought must have been returned because one end of the heater factory wiring had been previously cut. It was rewired incorrectly and I was lucky I opened that end and not the other to install. It was a dead short. told cust service

It seemed a little pricy, I was able to find others on the internet for less, however, the inspector was on his way. I went to HD, picked it up, installed it and we were good. When the heater went out, it blew a breaker. The whole fix was quick and easy. Took me about two hours. Started putting out heat immediately.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeremy Great heater easy to install
I foster dogs for different animal rescues, during the first few days I keep them on my side porch and used an electric heater to keep it worm. The issue is the dogs would knock it over and the safety shutoff would shut the heater over night. Now I made the decision to purchase this unit. I bought a wall mount thermostat for this unit but after trying to fish the wires I decided to return the wall mount thermostat and buy the one that mounts on the unit.
I ran a new 12/2 wire on a dual pole 20a breaker and from the instructions I could have used 14/2 with a dual pole 15a breaker but better safe than sorry and if I wanted to add another unit later on that line I can.
The unit was easy to hookup and the thermostat was extremely easy to wire ( read the instructions and follow them) . After about 1 hour with the unit on High the burning smell went away as advised in the instructions and I set the unit to the desired temperature setting shut the window and it did warm up the porch. It did take a little while on medium to warm up the porch about 20-30 minutes but it maintained the warmness through out the night so I am very pleased with the heater and overall a great value for the price.
The unit does not come with a thermostat so make sure you buy the wall mount or the unit mount thermostat when you buy. Also follow the instructions because the power can be wired from either side, the manual shows you how to wire up properly.
