Question about Fahrenheat Electric Convector Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt
How do you know how much footage of baseboard per room. And can all rooms be wired to one thermisate.
HERE YOU GO CALCULATE THE HEAT @ 10 WATTS PER SQUARE FOOT , TAKE THE LENGTH X WIDTH X 10 AND THIS WILL TELL YOU THE AMOUNT OF WATTAGE YOU NEED . MOST ALL BASEBOARD HEATERS ARE RATED @ 250 WATTS PER LEN FT AS TO SAY A EX. A 4FT HEATER IS 1000 WATTS , MOST OF THE THERMOSTATS ARE RATED @ 20 AMPS AS IS THE 12-2-WG WIRE TO RUN TO HEATERS AND THERMOSTAT DIVIDE THE TOTAL WATTAGE BY THE LINE VOLTAGE USUALLY 240VOLT IN US .AND THIS WILL TELL YOU THE CURRENT DRAW ----WHICH CANNOT EXCEED 20 AMPS ON 12-3-WG AND THAT IS THE LIMIT OF THE THERMOSTAT AS WELL THESE STATES APPLY 99% OF THE TIME I DO REALIZE THERE ARE EX BUT HAVE USED THESE FORMULAS FOR 35 YEARS OF DOING MY WORK AND THEY DO FINE
