Answer: 
Yes... same switch for 120 and 240. DO NOT BREAK YOUR COMMON WIRE (should be white)
Always break line voltage wires (hot, black/red/blue ...ect..) the 2 unused leads should be wire nutted and taped

Answer: 
Double pole is to be used also with 240 volts, you need to "break" both wires at the same time for 240 to be safe. Always consult a porfessional if you are unsure of your methods

Answer: 
Double pole has a dedicated off,discontinuing voltage to the heater. Where the single pole may be off, stopping the current, it still carries voltage to the heater. Double pole is the way to go. Don't go cheap on electric! For more info google single pole vs double pole thermostat.

Answer: 
Hi Daven,
Thanks so much for the excellent question! Single pole thermostats break only one side or leg of the power supply lines to your heater, and cannot be turned "off". Therefore, power is continuous to the heater and the heater will come on if a low temperatures exists. The control knob will have a low temperature setting when turned counterclockwise. Single pole thermostats are often used to Read More
Hi Daven,
Thanks so much for the excellent question! Single pole thermostats break only one side or leg of the power supply lines to your heater, and cannot be turned "off". Therefore, power is continuous to the heater and the heater will come on if a low temperatures exists. The control knob will have a low temperature setting when turned counterclockwise. Single pole thermostats are often used to control 120 volt heaters, but can also be used on 240 volt models.
Double pole thermostats break both sides or legs of the power supply lines; therefore all power to the heater is interrupted. The control knob will have an "off" position if turned fully counterclockwise. A double pole thermostat may be code in your part of the country, so be sure to check with your local building dept. to make sure you are using the correct type of control.
The video we've attached shows connections for both single pole and double pole thermostats.
Good luck on your project and thanks again for asking! Read Less

Answer: 
Hi Josh and thank you for your question.
The BTF2 thermostat has a temperature range of 40 degrees to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Unfortunately, this thermostat does not have temperature numbers to reference on the label.

Answer: 
There isn't a temperature. It depends on what the room is. Or as I found you can turn it all the way up and if the room is cold it will keep running and running till it finally gets warm in the room which might be more that you want. In my opinion it isn't a good thermostat. If you turn it down to where you hear it click off at the feeling you like in the room after a while it won't be. The winter I used Read More

In my opinion it isn't a good thermostat. If you turn it down to where you hear it click off at the feeling you like in the room after a while it won't be. The winter I used it I felt I had to keep after it. It is the temperature at that thermostat not of the room. it depends on the air circulation too. Another thing it may work better in a smaller room. I wish I had a better answer. I think it depends a lot on what you have. I believe there is a wall temp control made for it. That could be better.

I have to guess here but I think two may be too much for the circuit breaker. I only have part of your story.

Hello Larry and thank you for your question!
It is not recommended to install two heaters with one unit mount thermostat as the thermostat will not be very accurate.
For more precise and accurate control we recommend using a wall mount thermostat.
A great economical option is the T410A single pole or the T410B double pole. The single pole only has a high/low setting and no off setting, whereas the Read More

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by baseboard mechanical thermostat two of the thermostats was installed to two replacement Cadet baseboard heaters. Instructions were very easy to follow. it would have been nice if these stats had an on/off light on the switch knob. August 16, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Did the job Easy to install and worked well upon installation. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by did what i needed it to do - positive off position Installed easily, worked great. Needed a positve off and this was exactly what i needed. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding customer service from Cadet Bought this to heat a room addition in the back where the furnace heat was not enough. To say that the instruction manual was confusing would be an understatement. But when I called technical support, the lady who guided me through the process was OUTSTANDING. Not at all like the first man I spoke to regarding the installation- just read the instructions. I do not remember the name of the lady but she was very good, patient and helped me through the wire connections. I talked to here on Dec 29/30. The product has been used for about a month now and works absolutely wonderfully. Cost was the lowest at Home Depot, service there was very good, delivered 1 day before it was supposed to arrive, well packaged. Overall, if needed,will get it again but will recommend to Cadet to write the instructions, especially the wiring more clearly but they have some of the best technicians who are very helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good baseboard thermostat. Clear instructions, easy installation. Works perfectly with the Cadet baseboard heater it's designed for. The "Off" setting is a plus. February 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, quiet operation I just gutted an old home and installed the Cadet baseboard heaters. I used the 72" and 36 ". I used both this thermostat that goes on the heater and the wall thermostat. The are working great and are very quiet. I put them in one of my apartments earlier this year and my tenants and I are both happy with them. November 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality product. Works very well. I used this on a 24" baseboard heater in pump room to keep it from freezing. I like the lower temperature setting it keeps the room around 45-50 deg. It also has an off feature I like because I have the heater hardwired in. December 29, 2015
