Question about Fahrenheat Electric Convector Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt
It can not be done. if you want 2 seperate thermastats servicing 2 seperate baseboards, then what you will have is 2 seperate circuits, one for each thermastat and baseboard. If you are talking about only at the breaker box, then that can be done.... assuming that the total amperage does not exceed the wire rating or the breaker..... if that is the case you will have to install a junction box and split the wiring BEFORE it goes to each seperate heating unit.

A longer explanation is needed on these questions or I am not finding the whole question. I volunteer on allexperts.com and it is much clearer what help someone needs. Write to me at email@example.com or through allexperts.com and I will help you wire this. A baseboard heater should not be that complicated to wire up.
It should wire up like a 240 volt dryer, with the proper wire size and proper double pole breaker.
The heater will have the amperage and voltage rating on the unit, take that information and then measure how far from the breaker box you will be, to a hardware store. They can tell you and sell you the wire and breaker. aLSO TELL THEM WHAT BRAND BREAKER BOX YOU HAVE, it is written on the box somewhere.
The wire size will determined by the amps and the distance, the breaker will be sized to protect the wire, there will be either 2 hots and a neutral, or 2 hots and a neutral and a ground, older 240 devices were all three wire, now days most are four, the hardware store can tell you. You might have a red, black and white and green wire. Red would be one hot lead, black another hot, white neutral, green ground. The device will have either have the wires in a connection box or lugs labeled for hot, hot, neutral and ground. One way you wire nut the wire to each, the other you place under the lugs, at the breaker the hots are both ran through their own breaker, called a double breaker, the white will go on the neutral buss, and the green ground will go to the ground bar.
Hope this helps, it should not be a difficult job. or write me at firstname.lastname@example.org

12 gauge wire sounds under sized for the application. And 20 amp 240 v breakers might be sufficient if you where wiring the heaters separately. But be sure that your wiring is not romex - because romex is an insulator and is not permitted in conduit. I would suggest that you up size your wire to 10 guage and your breaker to 30 amp as well. Then double check your heater wiring connections to insure that they're wired the same throughout.
