Question about Marley Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater, 58" 240V/1250 Watts

Add line thermostat to fahrenheat space heater

I have a 5000w space heater from Fahrenheat.  The unit comes with a thermostat attached to the model but it only reads hot to cold (not a number).  The unit will also be mounted up on the ceiling where I wont be able to reach it so I would like to add a line voltage thermostat.  The thermostat I purchased is rated for this heater.  My question is do I leave the  simple thermostat attached in the unit or should I disconnect it?  In this case I would run the supply line to the thermostat and then from the thermostat to the heater.  Thanks.

I'm replacing a non-hydronic electric baseboard heating unit with a Fahrenheat hydronic one. My old unit was 240v using 2 conductors plus bare ground wire. The fahrenheat (PLF series) unit's instructions...


Hello. The red and the black are the hot wires. Therefore, connect one of your conductors to the red and the other conductor to the black. Use wirenuts. The bare ground wire should be solidly attached to the new unit's green wire using a wire nut.

Thermostat for Fahrenheat 5000Watt Ceiling mount heater


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 .

Electric baseboard heater


You need a meter, it will be hard without this! If you have 220v in the wall, then think of it like this; each wire is 120v. Test to each other, you get 220v. The thermostat is a double pole, you said. So think of it like this, its an adjustable temperature controlled switch that lets electricity through at the temp. you set it at. If you have 120v from one wire connected to one end of the element, and the other 120v connected to the other end of the element, then it will work. DO NOT CONNECT THE 120V TOGETHER. IT MUST GO THROUGH THE ELEMENT FIRST. The thermostat should be between the power from the wall and the element, to control the temperature.
