Hello what56 in Missouri and thanks for your questions!
Yes, this heater can be mounted on a carpeted floor. Just make sure that the carpet pile isn't any higher than about 1" tall because you don't want to block the heater's cold air intake. And yes, it can be mounted on a paneled wall, as long as the paneling is made of wood, and not a medium or lower density fiberboard.
And you don't need any space

And yes, it can be mounted on a paneled wall, as long as the paneling is made of wood, and not a medium or lower density fiberboard.
And you don't need any space between the wall and the carpeted floor! Feel free to butt the heater right up to the wall. We've included a link to our installation video which should help to explain just a bit more information for you.
Good luck and thanks again for asking. As a manufacturer we always appreciate questions so keep on asking! Read Less

Answer: 
The product uses aproximately 11 amps. (2500Watts divided by 240 Volts equals 10.42 Amps). This means that you can use #14 wire and a 15 amp circuit breaker if the unit is on a circuit by itself. You could also use two 1500 Watt units hooked to one thermostat and one circuit breaker. This would use 12.5 amps.

1500 Watts is good for 180 square feet in a cold climate like Minisota.... If you use two 1500 Watt heaters hooked to one thermostat you are good for 360 square feet. Place these heaters on oposite sides of the room.if possible. (1500 Watts is equivalent to 5120 BTU).

Answer: 
There are many factors that determine how many watts you will need to heat a room or zone. As a general rule, if the house was built before 1980 or the basement does not have appropriate insulation, you will probably need two 8 foot baseboard heaters. If your home was built after 1980 and there is decent insulation in the basement, then you should be able to heat the room with two 6 foot baseboards. Two Read More

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very functional Easy to install and wire looks as good as electric baseboard can look. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Three trips to the store. I only have given this product a good rating because I had to order it on line three times. The first and second time it came damaged. The third time I had it sent to the store for pickup .At this point I would have canceled the order, I needed it to match all of the other baseboards that I had installed. Home Depot should have given it to me free since I had to make three trips to the store, two return and one pickup. The store is 45 minutes one way, lots of gas and time. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product shipped on time and arrived without any dents. Fit the replacement correctly. Wires at either end which is helpful. Pretty straight forward installation. June 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product great value Overall this electric baseboard heater by Cadet is just what our home needed. Our old outdated, painted on by the previous home-owner heaters were a drag. We purchased 12 to update our entire house including the basement.. Easy to install (provided you know something about electricity, otherwise hire a professional) we were heating in just a few hours - 10-15 minutes per unit. Now our home looks and feels warm and cozy - highly recommend this product. March 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Delivered Damaged!!! After reading reviews i decided to go with this brand versus the Farenheat because they make too much noise. My biggest concern was that the Cadet would show up damaged which of course IT DID. I dont understand how this is possible because the packaging was perfect without tears in the box. I ordered the 72" and 96" with a digital thermostat. The thermostat and 72" were fine but the 96" was dented. I now have to go through the trouble of returning it and ordering 2 more hoping one shows up undamaged. Home Depot, do yourself a favor and stop stocking the farenheat which is receiving terrible reviews and stock a quality brand like Cadet so us consumers dont have to wait for a damaged product to be shipped to their door. December 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Baseboard heat is a good buy We bought 2 of the 240 Volt 8" baseboard heaters and thermostats. They are supplemental heat for two roomson the lower level and will be uses occasionally for extra heat in front of the windows. Good powder coating, look and operate well. They warm the room quicker than expected. Right now we're using them to dry the paint. December 24, 2013
