In order to place three soft heat 35 inch 500 watt units in a room on different walls. Can they be wired together to one thermostat?
Asked by: Kurt
Hello Kurt, thank you for your question! Yes you can do this as long as the thermostat is rated to handle 1500 watts at 240 volts. The heaters will need to be wired in parallel and not series.

What wall thermostat would you recomend with this product?

Im looking to replace my older units with these more energy efficient units ( i believe), and was wondering which wall thermostat would be the best energy efficient and effective option?
Asked by: Dennis
Hi Dennis and thank you for your question. For the tightest temperature control and greatest efficiency we would recommend an electronic programmable thermostat. We offer the TH106 single pole thermostat and the TH115 double pole thermostat. A single pole thermostat only has a high/low setting, whereas the double pole thermostat has a positive off setting. TH106: TH115:

Can curtains sit in front of or on top of these units?

Asked by: Nikko554
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 below.

SoftHeat 35 in. 500-Watt 240-Volt Hydronic Electric Baseboard Heater Left Hand Wire White is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

This baseboard heater is everything in the description, and so much better than the older style baseboard that I replaced. The name SoftHeat is perfect. I just don't realize it's heating until I feel the heat. Plus, the design appears to be so much safer than older styles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, great quality hydronic baseboard heater The Cadet Softheat hydronic baseboard heater has a lot to recommend it. Firstly, it is well built - it doesn't seem at all flimsy or cheap, like some old electric baseboard units I remember from the past.. The sheet metal feels fairly sturdy, and the paint surface is of nice quality. Secondly, the instructions are clear and simple, although if you aren't comfortable with electrical work you should definitely have an electrician install it. Thirdly, because it's hydronic (has fluid to retain the heat), it holds heat well. That is, once it's up to temperature, the heat stays nice and even, without that 'burning dust' smell which sometimes accompanies non-hydronic baseboard heaters. The even heat is the luxury of a hydronic heater, which comes at a fairly substantial extra cost. I think it's well worth it. And, because the heat is even, the heater doesn't make all these little clicking and ticking noises as it warms up and cools off. It just sits there, quiet and warm. I have another one of these heaters in an enclosed porch area, and I liked it so much I've bought one for another spot. One thing which surprised me about the installation was that it was recommended to place the heater right against the wall. That is, there doesn't need to be a baseboard. That's nice, because the room it's in is very narrow, so that made a little more space. You should also be aware that there should be no outlets above the heater. The installation instructions can easily be found online, and you might want to review them before purchasing to be sure the heater is right for you. Cadet also has somewhere on their website a calculator which helps to determine what size heater is right for the space. I found that helpful as well. My baseboard heater is set up on an outside wall, with a separate thermostat on an inside wall. That arrangement works very well. The thermostat switches the 220V to the heater, so make sure it's the right type for this. Some thermostats use a relay to do the switching, which makes a little 'click' whenever the heater goes on or off. The thermostat I selected has a tric (a solid state relay for AC power) to control the switching, so it is absolutely silent - no clicking at all. Again, if terms like 'amps, watts, volts, ohms, ground, resistive load, etc. are not perfectly familiar to you - get an electrician. It's not that hard, but it may not be the best project to learn on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
