I am replacing 2 100" long Electromode baseboard heaters. The service from the thermostat is on the lefthand end facing the unit.They are 240 volts and I do not know what the wattage is. 1.Can I use the present thermostat for your unit. 2. Can I connect both together as they were before. 3.The room is 20x30 ft. with a high ceiling and I still have 2 Electromode units as described on the other side of the room that I am not replacing at this time. They are completely seperate from the units I am replacing.What units do you suggest?

Wattage is amperage x current

the amperage should be listed on the name plate.

formula goes:

wattage= amperage x 240

Actually David, you will need at least 6 or 8 gauge wire, since it's a 240 Volt System. Any larger gauge and the wiring will melt & short out.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I would like to know how your new baseboard heaters compare with an old baseboard heater I need to replace. How much more energy effecientis your product than an old unit(s) my grandfather put into his...


Glenn, we don't sell anything on this site except ways to solve repair issues. You need to contact several dealers or manufacturers of electric baseboard heaters to answer your question intelligently. Researching online can be a great resource.

Certainly there will be some savings using today's models, but how much has a lot of variables. For example, you can have a 94% efficient furnace. But, if your home is not energy efficient, that 94% efficient furnace doesn't mean much.

Good luck to you. I hope I've headed you in the right direction.

If you take thermostrat back off and connect the wires together will baseboard heater get hot. If not you may have bad heater. If it gets hot your new tstat may be bad. The way you have it wired is correct. Most line voltage tstats have a ground screw. Your 's may not but will work without one .

Central air conditioner doesn't turn on... Any suggestions?


If the compressor turns off and won?t come back on during a very hot day, the unit may have built up a high "head" pressure and the high-pressure limit switch may have tripped. This is usually located right inside the access panel on the compressor unit. Simply push the button to return it to operation. If your central air conditioner doesn't go on automatically: 1) Be sure the thermostat is set to "cool" and set below room temperature. 2) A central air conditioner should be on a dedicated 240-volt circuit; check the main electrical panel and any secondary circuit panels for a tripped breaker or blown fuse. If you find the problem here, reset the breaker or replace the fuse. 3) Make sure the furnace power switch is turned on and that the outdoor condenser's power switch, mounted on the outdoor unit, hasn't been shut off. Also be sure the 240-volt disconnect next to the compressor (in a metal box, usually mounted on the house wall) hasn't been shut off. 4) Turn off the power to the air conditioner and check the thermostat. 5) Remove the thermostat's cover and unscrew the wire from the Y terminal. 6) Turn the power back on. 7) Holding the wire by its insulation, touch the bare end to the R terminal and hold it there for about 2 minutes. If the compressor kicks on, the thermostat is faulty; replace it or call an air conditioning technician. If the compressor doesn't go on when you hold the two wires together, turn the power back off and call a service technician.
