Question about Fahrenheat Electric Convector Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt
First this diy stuff with electricity is scary. You describe the wiring as 3 wire 110, I understand the heater to be 240, the heat side of what? The heat side you say you only had the ground and a red.
You have to be more clear about the heater connections, what voltage, what amperage, what number of conductors you have, what distance to the breaker, what the breaker size is, and much more to do this correctly. As to it being wired with 12/2 that is possible if it were 110 volt and required that much amperage capability, along with a chassis ground, making the wire 12/2 with ground, but that is not 240 that is 120 volt.
Write me at email@example.com or look me up at allexperts.com and we will go from there.
But wiring up heaters when there are this many questions is leaving a huge chance for something to go wrong.
Write me back or hire an electrician, one way or the other, it needs to be safe, tested, and checked when completed.
