You have several different options available for a thermostat as the unit does not come with one, but that allows you to make your own choice. The first related product item below installs right on the unit, and the other two are wall mount options that work equally well. Your best bet for energy savings will be one of the electronic wall models.
Thanks again for your questions and hope you enjoy our first weekend of Fall. Read Less

Answer: 
Thank you for your question.
You will need to maintain at least 12 inces minimum clearance in front of the SoftHeat baseboard and also from objects hanging above the baseboard such as curtains. A 6 inch minimum clearance is required for adjacent walls and objects on either side of the heater.
Please reference page 3 of the Owner's Guide in the link Read More

Answer: 
Hi Jim and thank you for your question.
As a rule of thumb we recommend using 10 watts per square foot of space. For your room of 20 feet x 15 feet we would recommend using 3,000 watts of heat. Depending on your wall space available you could use two 1,500 watt SoftHeat heaters or even switch to a wall fan heater.
The Com-Pak Twin 3,000 watt heater would be a great option. Please see the link below for Read More

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Most Efficient electric heat If your home has electric base board heat and there is no reasonable other heat choice, this is the way to go. This baseboard unit is liquid filled, so it retains its heat even after the unit cycles off. It act like hot water baseboard heat but with an electric heating element. This keeps the room warmer for a longer period because of the units retained heat. The heat doesn't cycle on as often, saving money. The initial expense is more but It can use existing wiring and thermostats and comes in a number of lengths and wattage's. Change one in a room that is frequently used and feel the difference. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by heater Nice heater. Well built. Easy to install and looks good. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent for small bedroom Replaced a 50 year old 54" baseboard heater with this unit in a small basement spare bedroom. We keep the heat on low in the winter and wanted a safer heat source. Installation was quick an easy. Lots of space inside above the element for easy attachment to the wall. Apparently the polarity on the wiring doesn't matter, both wires are black, but that was not clear in the instructions. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very pleased w/ productbj this was a very good purchase for me. it has performed excellently. did not have to assemble. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good spare room heating solution I had a spare bedroom where the heater was missing but the old thermostat was still installed. It required a 240V unit. The Cadet was a perfect size and provided a great direct replacement solution. It's quiet, heats well, and the price was right. Note that it requires a bit of electrical knowledge to install properly. April 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple and Warm I did some renovation to make room for my 21 year old in a house that had a "closet" for a 3rd bedroom. The Cadet was my choice to heat that new room. I love the shallow profile and it's a comfortable heat. April 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product meets every "Gold Standard" for electric heaters! I'm rating this product five stars for all areas!! March 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Heat Output / Quiet These were relatively easy to hook up (the pain was fishing a 220 line through the walls). But once they're paired with a thermostat the heat output it great. Since they're oil filled, they radiate for quite a while once the power is cycled off, which is nice. Provides a nice constant heat for the room. Only have had a week, so jury is still out on the impact to my energy bill. January 8, 2013
