20 Most Recent Fahrenheat Electric Convector Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt Questions & Answers

You could do it. It would mean serious wiring though and you should use the factory thermostat because it is designed to operate on 240 Volts. Or you could use a remote thermostat at low voltage to throw a relay in the heater and get it to come on. The manual has good diagrams on how it is wired and it would not be too hard to do. IT would operate just like the outside unit on an HVAC system .

all you can do really is clean them as best as possible

this is a tough call but with 2000 watts in each room there should be more than enough heat .the rooms should maintain a average temp of 73 to 78 degrees temp without weatherazation and that is of course there is no drafts coming from any windows or near a front or back door that opens and closes alot . Basiclly you have it covered but definatley get the house winterize/insulated real good.I would keep 1 or 2 space heaters on hand just incase the person in house feels there cold just to cover yourself ,usually it the female complaining its cold if its not warm enough but there have been some males that need that temp to be 80 degrees all the time.good luck but im sure it will be ok!!

therte is no neutral wire when wiring 240v ( 2 black 1 ground usually)

Fahrenheat... | Answered on Sep 21, 2014

I am an electrician. You must measure the voltage across the black and red wires. Measuring each wire to the neutral will not cut it. If both your red and black wire are on the same phase the heater will not work.

To double check your wiring, measure the voltage across the two screws feeding your subpanel, they should be 240v or 208v depending on your power company. Then do the same at the breaker feeding your thermostat. Again it should read 240v.

If you have no potential across the screws it is possible that you installed an incorrect breaker. Not all breakers with two screws on them are 240v breakers. There is what is called a twin or split breaker that has two screws that are on the same phase. These are for wiring two 110v circuits, when you run out of spaces in the panel.

Double check everything. This is a relatively easy circuit to wire, even for homeowners. If the heater does not work them something is wrong so do not leave the circuit energized.

Check that you have no CO2 coming from the gas heater exhaust getting into the house. The heating guy should have a meter to check for CO2. High levels of CO2 are very very dangerous.

There's only a few things that can go wrong with this; No power supply, faulty switch or thermostat, open (broken) heating element. Shut the power off and get out your multi-meter and check for continuity to make you have a complete circuit.

One of the main differences is the stelpro is 110 volts and the uberhaus is 240.
