Thousands have been wired with 12 awg wire on a 20 amp breaker. Code stipulates such an appliance draw no more than 80% of capacity, or 16 amps on a 12 awg/20 CB system.

Rule of thumb, keep the wire big and the overload protection (breaker) the smallest that will handle the job. Read Less

The description for this says "Convenient, complete package includes wall can...."
Does the wall can also double as the surface mount or do I need to order the surface mount can separately? If so, which one?

A 240 volt, 1500 watt model recommendation for you is listed in the related items below, along with its required wall can and a white grill option.

Answer: 
Don't know what you mean by a high/low switch. You can bypass the built in thermostat and put a wall thermostat on the wall. This is basically two 2000 watt heaters in a double can, so a creative person could run the wire for the second heater up to a switch that would kill the second heater/ fan if you wanted to... not sure why you would want to.

Answer: 
The heater's heat setting is controlled by turning a dial knob which turns from off then gradually to the desired heat setting (low-high).
The heater has an inner " wall can" which mounts recessed between the inner wall studs, leaving only the unit's face exposed and flush mounted with the drywall.

The temperature range is 40 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit, and the thermostat controls the amount of time the unit is operating to reach your desired temperature. If the knob is turned counterclockwise to its lowest position, the thermostat will keep your room within about 5 degrees of the 40 degree low setting.
And the Com-Pak Plus style heaters are made to install into a 2x4 stud wall. We've included a link to an installation video that walks you through the installation. This particular model mounts to one side of the stud cavity.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 57 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wall heater Good heater I think I will put one in every room of my house September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good price, easy to install, working great This was a great purchase. We were looking for reliable heating source to supplement, or replace, our natural gas wall heater in a 850 square feet cabin at altitude of 7000 feet. It does get very cold up there in the winter. After reading very positive reviews for COM-PAK we decided that this is the right product. We bought it on line, it was delivered to Home Depot when promised. It was easy to install, by a licensed electrician and it worked like a charm. Since our wall is not thick enough we also used the adapter for mounting heater on the wall. The adapter worked great too. That night we used it as only source of heat. It worked great, it was worm and cozy in the cabin, and no smell of the gas. It also warmed up the cabin in 15-20 minutes. With gas wall heater it took up to the hour. I recommend this product to anyone who needs a well priced, compact, and quick heating source. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great performance! I was not sure what to expect out of this little unit. It all started when I realized that the home builder did not make any provisions for heat or insulation in my 20x20 garage. I thought about adding a gas heater but was a little skeptical on the install effort. I looked at some hanging garage heaters but I was hoping for something that would be a little easier to mount as a DIY type job. After reading the positive reviews on this heater I decided to go for it. The first thing that surprised me was the size of this little unit. It's truly not very big. It's also not very difficult to install. I roughed out the hole in my wall for the can, then ran 10/2 wire through my attic and down my walls. I knocked out the can for strain relief (not included) and mounted the can in the wall. The wiring was extremely straightforward. Overall, anybody considering this unit should keep the following points in mind: 1) This is an electric heater. It costs a little under $0.40 per kilowatt hour where I live which means I'm spending about $1.60 per hour to have this heater running. If the heater runs for 1/2 hour out of every hour, I spend $20 per day keeping my garage warm. For me this is a non issue since I don't keep it running 24/7 but gas may have been cheaper to operate. 2) Insulation may have a big effect on how well this thing works. I'm shocked (no pun intended) at how well this heater works overall in my garage. But my garage has no insulation in the ceiling which no doubt causes the heater to cycle fairly frequently to keep up on a 20 degree day. My next Home Depot purchase is going to be some insulation to make things more efficient. For me, the cheap, simple installation of an electric heater just made the most sense for a weekend garage warrior like myself. January 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Heater I finished a 15'x20' room in the basement for watching movies, so it's not the type of room that is consistently heated. I had originally installed an 8' section of forced hot water baseboard that took several hours to get the room up to a comfortable temp. After researching several options, I decided on this heater. The install was simple, the unit is tiny, and it throws TONS of heat. I can get the room from around 60 degrees to 70 degrees in about 10 minutes, so it's the perfect application for how we use the room. Fan is a little louder than I expected, but not an issue. I can easily hear the TV while it's on. Very satisfied. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeps a basement toasty Have this installed in the middle of my 900 sq foot basement to heat the main open area of about 600 sq ft. The walls are insulated but the drop ceiling has none behind it. The heater turned on medium or high warms up the entire space quickly. It can even get hot down there! It is not too loud, I equate it with my upstairs forced heat coming on. I am using it as the only source of heat in the basement and it is more than adequate. I've tried tower and quartz heaters that promised to heat up to 1,000sq ft and they didn't come close. Have only been using for a week so don't know how it will effect my monthly bill yet. February 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Working well for over 10 years Bought two condos in San Diego that were converted in 2005. At time of conversion, three of these heaters were installed in each condo (two bedrooms and living/dining room). In my units, all six are still working fine, relatively quiet, heat the bedrooms well, living room takes a bit longer. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IN-WALL ELECTRIC HEATER Heater is easy to install but must be used on 220 voltage. Adequately and comfortably heats 200 sq. ft. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy install, impressive performance Installed in a poorly-insulated back room used as an office. 240V circuit was in place, left over from old baseboard heat. Drywall cut and stud mounting was easy, as was electrical connection. 4000W Cadet quickly heated room from 55F to 70F, and held temperature through the day by running approx. 10 minutes on and 30 minutes off. This kept the temp between 68-70F. For an 8-hour day at $0.12/kWh... my math shows about $1.50/day operating cost. A bargain to heat an icebox of a room! November 12, 2012
