Answer: 
Anything that produces heat will be hot to the touch. The unit actually was hotter than expected when I put my fingers on the bottom section. Best option install the unit and tell the grandkids if you touch it you can get burned. There are warning labels on the unit as well.

For the bathroom, Cadet recommends a wall fan heater instead of a baseboard heater because fan heaters provide instant warmth; the ideal heaters for the bathroom are the Cadet Com-Pak Bath. This heater carries the UL Mark and has undergone extensive safety testing to an established UL standard. However, as noted on the product label and in the Owner’s Guide “This heater is hot when in use. To avoid burns, do not let bare skin touch hot surfaces. Use extreme caution when any heater is used by or near children and whenever the heater is left operating unattended.” Cadet recommends that children are carefully supervised around any brand of heater.

Answer: 
You need to add up the # of Maximum watts. Off the top of my head NO. The thermostat will tell you what the max wattage is and the unit will tell you the number of watts it uses. Pretty self explanatory.

Answer: 
You will need a seperate thermostat for the 120 volt circuit and another seperate one for the 240 volt circuit because they are seperate dedicated circuits. If all three units were 240 volt then it would be feasable to use one thermostat.

Answer: 
Hi Fred and thank you for your question.
As a rule of thumb we recommend using between 6 and 10 watts per square foot. If this is your primary source of heat in the room you will want to use 8-10 watts per square foot, but if it's supplemental heat you could use 6-8 watts per square foot.
Based on this rule, for a room that is 324 square feet you would want to use between 2,000 and 3,000 watts. You may Read More

Based on this rule, for a room that is 324 square feet you would want to use between 2,000 and 3,000 watts. You may want to look at installing an in wall fan heater instead of a baseboard. We offer fan heaters in a couple different wattages that will work for you.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question, Bob.
You will need a separate thermostat for each 120 volt heater. If you are looking at wiring two 1,000 watt 120 volt heaters on one circuit you will need to use 10/2 wire with ground on a 30 amp breaker.
If you are in need of the 48" 1,000 watt 120 volt baseboard heater please follow the link Read More

If your application needs the 240 volt baseboard heater, you can wire two of the 48" 1,000 watt heaters to one thermostat as long as the combined amperage of the heaters does not exceed the amp rating of the thermostat. The combined amperage of two 1,000 watt 240 volt heaters is 8.4 amps.
For wiring two 1,000 watt 240 volt heaters on one circuit you can use 12/2 wire with ground on a 15 amp breaker. Read Less

Answer: 
Bob, you need to add up the total amperage rating of the total of all on circuit. If amperage not listed on heater then use the total wattage for heaters and divide that number by 120 volts to abstain total amperage. If total amperage 15 and under use 14-2 wire with 15 amp breaker. If over 15 but not over 20 then use 12-2 wire with 20 amp breaker.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Buy This is a replacement for the one I purchased 10 yrs ago from Home Depot,the only DIY item I am leary of is electrical installations. This was extremely easy to install. I did contact the customer support number to ensure I was doing it correctly. Took minutes to install. Great product February 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great low wattage heater Great heater with low electrical use. I ordered this in South West Florida to take the chill off those January mornings. They can't be bought in the stores in Florida as they are in Ohio, so must be ordered the same with the thermostat. December 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I am a Novice, easy installaton 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. March 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful we'll be able to have a warm Christmas thanx to these baseboard heaters. I purchased 7 for the entire house and now we don't need to worry about staying In only one part of the house because the whole house Is warm now. :) December 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seems to be a good product for the cost so far, haven't used much yet Seems to be a good product so far, Home Depot needs to include in their online product description that the required thermostat is not included. I ended up having to drive 3 hours to get thermostats since no store closer carried them. After checking other sites I found they state thermostat required, this would have saved alot of time and fuel. I had a tight timeline to get these installed and couldn't have them shipped April 24, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 2, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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 March 27, 2012
