Hello Gerry,
Thank you for asking an excellent question! Amperage for the Cadet SoftHeat 1500 watt baseboard is 6.25 amps. You can find amps with a simple calculation: just divide the number of watts by the voltage rating. If you have a 1500 watt heater, like the Cadet SoftHeat baseboard, just divide 1500 by 240 and the result is the amperage draw or load. This equation can also be used to figure out Read More
Hello Gerry,
Thank you for asking an excellent question! Amperage for the Cadet SoftHeat 1500 watt baseboard is 6.25 amps. You can find amps with a simple calculation: just divide the number of watts by the voltage rating. If you have a 1500 watt heater, like the Cadet SoftHeat baseboard, just divide 1500 by 240 and the result is the amperage draw or load. This equation can also be used to figure out wattage: multiply amps by the voltage rating, 6.25 by 240, and the result is wattage. The equations are governed by Ohm's law related to electricity.
We sincerely appreciate your interest and inquiry. Good luck with your project and feel free to keep asking questions. Read Less

Sorry, customer support person, you are referencing the wrong section of the NEC. You are mistaking 210.23(A) and (B) where you should be referencing 210.20 (A). 210.20 states "Where a branch circuit supplies continuous loads or any combination of continuous and non-continuous loads, the rating of the overcurrent device, or circuit breaker if you will, shall not be less than the non-continuous load plus Read More
Sorry, customer support person, you are referencing the wrong section of the NEC. You are mistaking 210.23(A) and (B) where you should be referencing 210.20 (A). 210.20 states "Where a branch circuit supplies continuous loads or any combination of continuous and non-continuous loads, the rating of the overcurrent device, or circuit breaker if you will, shall not be less than the non-continuous load plus 125% of the continuous load." So as long as these heaters don't run for more then 3 hours at a time non-stop, making it a continuous load, they are non-continuous and you could hook up 4 of these heaters on a single 30 amp 2 pole circuit, because their total ampacity is still only 25 amps or 3 heaters on a 20 amp circuit at 18.75 amps. The only time you have to use the 80% rule is for a single receptacle. Typical duplex receptacles null and void the 80% rule as well.
In short you can have 4 of these heaters on a 30 amp circuit or 3 heaters on a 20 amp circuit. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi Tony,
Great question! The quantity of heaters is dependent on the size of the breaker, and you are limited to 80% of the breaker's amperage capacity. For a 20 amp breaker, you can install 2 of the Cadet SoftHeat 1500 Watt Baseboard heaters, which will total 12.5 amps. For a 30 amp breaker, you can install 3 of the Cadet SoftHeat 1500 Watt heaters, which will total 18.75 amps.

For a 30 amp breaker, you can install 3 of the Cadet SoftHeat 1500 Watt heaters, which will total 18.75 amps.
Remember that the guage of your wire needs to match the size of the breaker. You will also need a thermostat for your heaters. If you choose a wall thermostat, its amperage capacity has to be large enough to support the heater load. Alternately, you can choose individual end cap thermostats--one for each heater. We've included both options for you below.
Thanks so much for asking! Read Less

Hello Laurie,

The Cadet SoftHeat hydronic baseboard heaters are permanent mount units that screw into the wood studs in the wall behind the heater. They are connected, or 'hard wired' to a 240 volt electrical power supply line. They are ETL approved to install only in this manner. On page 3 of the instruction link below, it shows where the wire connections are made inside the junction box:
http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/aa/aa406c7e-248b-4fd0-82b1-cefc335f7aae.pdf
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

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home Repair and improvement My purchase shipped quickly and arrived without damage. The instructions enclosed permitted me to install it myself without calling an electrician. The heater warms quickly and quietly and seems to be all that was promised so far. March 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extremely Happy With This Heater I put an office in my basement and it had baseboard heat that had been removed. I decided to go with this heater even though it was a little more money than some of the others available. I am completely happy with this heater. The room is about 16 x 20 and there is an open hallway that connects to it. It keeps the entire area very comfortable. One of the best features that sold me was the soft radiant heat. It doesn't kick on and blast you with heat and then cool off and you are freezing again. It keeps my home office perfect. November 13, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Warming Up Easy to install with simple instructions. Heats quicker than traditional baseboard and stays warm longer. More expensive to buy initially but does warm a larger area while using less electricity since it stays warm longer after shutting off. The 82" heats our 15x20 all seasons room with a nice even heat. *Baseboard has to be level to work properly. Elevate from the floor to keep it from rusting. May 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heater works well and was a good solution for supplemental heat. I purchased this heater to provide supplemental heat in a basement office. The heater provides plenty of heat for the purpose, and is very simple and attractive in appearance. The heater makes more clicking noise than I expected, but I have not yet tried loosening the mounting screws. The quality is good, but the front cover attaches fairly loosely. The internal element is substantial and appears well made. The included electronic thermostat is very accurate and works beautifully. January 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great heater and will reduce my oil bills! I am using this 83" heater along with the 35" version in order to heat a newly finished basement with approx. 550 sq-ft. Just to set the stage for you, the walls in the basement are all insulated, including the floor joists. The boiler room was partitioned into its own storage room, so whatever heat used to come from the boiler no longer keeps the basement warm. However, despite that, the basement stays around 55 degrees without any heat even when the outside temperature is in the 20's. The Cadet heaters take a few minutes to heat up but it takes anywhere from 1 to 2 hr to get the inside temperature from 55 degrees to a balmy 68 degrees. Yes, it seems like a long time to wait for it to heat 13 degrees but it sure as h3ll beats having to pay for a tank of oil (in our area, about $800 for 200 gallons) which we used to have to fill every 1-2 months in the winter. Upstairs, we have hot water baseboard heaters and although I could've installed the same for the basement, I had the chance to use electric baseboard and I'm glad I did. I had my contractor perform the install but it looked fairly straightforward. The only mistake we made was not running the feed to the thermostat. I'd never installed these before, so before I hired my contractor, I ran 240v to the floor and then sealed it up with drywall. Big mistake. Stupid me. I should've ran it to where the thermostat would be (about 5-ft high), then run another cable down to the heater. So when my contractor was installing the heaters, he had to rip into the wall to re-run the lines. Lesson learned, hopefully you won't make the same mistake as me January 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best quality out there! Works very well! Came well packed by MFG and you can tell it's a quality product. Put's out alot of heat and is very quiet. December 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best type of electric baseboard heater Heater was easy to install and very efficient. With the liquid enclosed and heated it keeps the room at a more even temp. December 16, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Improvement over old King baseboards. I have an autistic daughter who is drawn to heat including our old baseboards. My hope was to reduce risk of her being burned on our old King baseboards. The new cadets soft heat are definitely cooler to touch but if hand is left on too long enough, a child could get a burned finger eventually. Overall pleased with look and somewhat safer product.
