Answer: 
Be sure you are using 1 thermostat per heater.. dont use 120 volt heater on a 240 volt circuit or in conjunction with a 240 volt heater.. keep separated circuits and ALWAYS be sure wires are large enough so not to over heat the wires and cause fire in the wall

Answer: 
Watts divided by volts give you the amps, so if you are using just a single heater manufactured for 125 volts, you will draw about 12 amps, use #14 wire and a 15 amp breaker. If your breaker panel is a Zinsco, get it replaced first.
In apartments it is common to use a 30 amp double pole breaker, , #10 wire and take it to several thermostats, but this should be done by a pro.

Unit mount or wall mount thermostat, which is better?

This question is from 72 in. 1,500-Watt 120-Volt Electric Baseboard Heater in White
Asked by
Lowell, IN.

February 2, 2014
Since most thermostats are located midway between the floor and ceiling, and these unit mounted baseboard thermostats are mounted near floor level, do they cause the unit to run longer?

What I'm getting at is, with the thermostat on the floor, and heat rises, will the upper air of the room get too hot than if a wall mount thermostat was used midway on the wall?

Its really is irrelevant. Lets say that you have just started up your heater. Lets say that the top air column in the room is 78 degrees. With the top at 78 you come midway down and find that the middle area that you occupy is a comfortable 74 degrees.

Its really is irrelevant. Lets say that you have just started up your heater. Lets say that the top air column in the room is 78 degrees. With the top at 78 you come midway down and find that the middle area that you occupy is a comfortable 74 degrees. Now the lower third is 68 degrees As long as you set the thermostat in that lower level to come at at that 68 degree point you should be good for your 74 degree comfort zone. And another consideration is weather you have ceiling fans or not. They keep the room air well blended and a heater mount thermostat should work great..
The only reason I've added my input is to save on installation costs if your on a budget. It's really neat the first time you use one of these. Mounted below a window as suggested creates a heck of a convection current and in a short while you might even notice the wisp's of warm air rolling along the floor back towards the heater. Read Less

Answer: 
depends on where you want the heat to be registered. heat rises.. so a wall mount will shut of sooner.. a unit mount may heat more often and over condition the space somewhat. both work fine when PROPERLY located.

Answer: 
Hi Dkeith45,
For a new installation we recommend a wall mount thermostat because they tend to be more accurate and more convenient to operate. Also, certain models are programmable and have digital display.
Unit Mount thermostats can be easier to install, but, as you mention due to their proximity to the floor, they can be a little less accurate.

Thank you for your question. Your interest is very much appreciated.
The Cadet electric baseboard heaters are permanent mount units that screw into the wood studs in the wall behind the heater. Depending on the model, they are connected or 'hard wired', to either a 120 or 240 volt electrical power supply line.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's good The price is right and the product works as expected. June 7, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ok product. Not as good at heating a small room as I thought it would be. Good quality product. and made by a good company that does stand behind their product. They are quick to answer questions via online chat. While this heater was a good price and fast to install, this heater gobbles electricity and the amount of warmth it provides does not justify the expense to operate. It is a monster on the monthly electric bill. This heater is not as efficient at heating a room as I had hoped it would be. The heater was installed to manufacturers specification. The room size is matched for the ratings on the unit and all is working as it should except it does not generate enough warmth. The heater is easy to install. The wiring instructions are very clear. You can find videos online that show how to install this unit. This is more of a supplemental heat source than a main heat source. I purchased both the 96" 240v and the 72" 120v models along with the matching double pole thermostat to use in a small home in two bedrooms and a dining room. January 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great heater The heater works great and was easy install. Product came when it was scheduled to. Be careful around drapes this thing cranks out some serious heat, just what the doctor ordered, very pleased will buy more when that time comes to replace my other baseboard heaters! November 5, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product works great I bought this product for an addition room. I installed it within minutes of receiving the products and put it to the trial. It warmed up the room in matter of about 20 minutes or so keep in mind that the room was extremely cold and not the best insulated room. December 26, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quickly fixing the cold room Metal is a little thin. The front plate was bent in shipping. It warms the room well, and was easily installed. The only down side was the smell each time it warmed up for about the first week. It almost smelled like something trying to catch fire. Now everything is great. January 8, 2016
