Asked by les August 7, 2018

I would say that you could hard wire it for aesthetics. The old owners probably found it convenient to put a plug on it. I've taken a blower cage from an AC unit and put a plug on them for a fan for the garage, It doesn't look great, but it works. My caveat here would be always consult a professional electrician when in doubt. Especially if it involves the safety of your home.

Asked by Jake April 10, 2017

Hello Jake, thank you for your question! This baseboard will need a thermostat in order to operate properly. Without a thermostat the heater would run non-stop and can experience nuisance tripping. We sell an onboard thermostat that can be wired into this baseboard and does not require any wall work. Model BTF comes in a single pole (BTF1) and a double pole (BTF2). A single pole thermostat is a low-high setting only with no off position. A double pole thermostat has a low-high setting as well as an off position. Please see links below for both. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Cadet-Single-Pole-Electric-Baseboard-Mount-Mechanical-Thermostat-in-White-BTF1W/202247920?keyword=btf1w http://www.homedepot.com/p/Cadet-Double-Pole-Electric-Baseboard-Mount-Mechanical-Thermostat-in-White-BTF2W/100023275?keyword=btf2w

Asked by casey March 7, 2017

Hello Casey, thank you for your question! Baseboard heaters require a foot of clearance above them and in front of them as well as six inches on both sides. We would not advise putting any type of coats above the heater. If one of the coats were to fall on the heater and remain there, it would not meet safety requirements.

Can this heater be mounted on carpet?

Asked by Yammie March 4, 2017

Hello, thank you for your question! Yes this can be mounted flush on the carpet, although we recommend installing a few inches from the floor so you can have access to cleaning underneath it.

Can i connect this 120volt 48" heater in parallel to an existing 96" cadet 2,500 watt / 240 volt baseboard heater?

Asked by Matt February 20, 2017

Hello Matt, thank you for your question! No you can't connect a 120 volt heater to a 240 volt line. The heater will not operate on the incorrect voltage. You will need to order a 240 volt 48" heater. Please see link below. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Cadet-48-in-1-000-Watt-240-Volt-Electric-Baseboard-Heater-in-White-4F1000W/100045022?keyword=4f1000w

Asked by dave January 30, 2017

Hello Dave, thank you for your question! Yes, you can use a double pole thermostat for your 120 volt baseboard as long as the thermostat is rated for 1000 watts at 120 volts. A good recommendation for a double pole thermostat is model BTF2W which can be wired into either side of the baseboard. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Cadet-Double-Pole-Electric-Baseboard-Mount-Mechanical-Thermostat-in-White-BTF2W/100023275?keyword=btf2w

Buzzing with new thermostat

Asked by Josh December 29, 2016

Hello Josh, thank you for your question! Changing your thermostat should not cause the heaters to start buzzing unless the circuit is overloaded. We would like more information on your central wall Honeywell thermostat as well . Please give our technical support a call Monday-Thursday 8am-5pm and Friday 8am-3pm Pacific time so we can help diagnose your issue (855.223.3887) .

what is the risk of wiring the heater with the appropriate gauge wire and using a plug into a sta...

Asked by new2DIY December 27, 2016

Hello, thank you for your question! Our heaters are required to be hardwired to a dedicated circuit breaker and not into an outlet. Wiring into an outlet can cause the circuit breaker to trip due to overloading, and would be considered wired in series and not parallel. Our heaters are not tested this way and would not be ETL approved if installed incorrectly.

do I need a separate circuit to install 2 - 48" units??

Asked by rick November 28, 2016

Hi Nick and thank you for your question! You can either install these units on two separate 15 amp breakers using 12/2 wire with ground or you can install both units on one 30 amp breaker using 10/2 wire with ground.

Can I connect 4 of these units together for a larger room and run them off the same thermostat?

Asked by TeacherBarb November 17, 2016

Hello TeacherBarb, thank you for your question! No you can't connect four of these baseboards to one thermostat. The largest size wire our heaters are rated for is 10 gauge wire. The largest circuit breaker you can use for this size wire is a 30 amp breaker. The max amount of wattage you can have on a 30 amp single pole breaker is 2880 watts. You will need to split the load onto two separate breakers using two separate thermostats. A good recommendation for a wall thermostat is model TH106 which is a single pole digital programmable thermostat rated at 16.7 amps. A digital thermostat will keep more accurate temperatures and will be most efficient. You will need two of these thermostats for all four baseboards. Please see link below for thermostat recommendation. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Cadet-16-7-Amp-120-208-240-Volt-Single-Pole-Electronic-7-Day-Programmable-Wall-Thermostat-in-White-TH106/202247918?keyword=th106
