Question about Marley Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater, 58" 240V/1250 Watts
What are you talking about? If it is a furnace or heat pump, only small control wires go to the thermostat. The power wires go directly to the furnace or heat pump.
If you are talking about a space heater, the thermostat is essentially a switch controlled by a temperature sensing element. In normal 110 volt circuits, the white wire is the neutral and goes directly to the heating elements. if there are two or more, one wire from each element will tie together and go to the white wire.
The black wire is the hot wire and always goes to the switch contacts on the thermostat. The second wires from the heating elements often tie together and go to the other terminal of the thermostat.
If the thermostat is a multistage thermostat, there will be two of more output terminals on the thermostat. The input terminal to the thermostat which goes to the black power wire should be clearly marked.
You mention the you are using 12-2 wire from the breaker box. 12-2 wire is only good for 20 amps and may be too small for your heater. Look for the amp input requirements stamped on a plate on the heater. If the total amp draw is greater than 20 amps, consult the National Electrical Code for the proper size wire

The Black Wires from the md26 are your load(the heater) and the red lines are your line(power). The lines are also paired up on the thermostat with a red and black on the left and are red and black on the right. In the actual heater connect the black to the black wire and the white to the white and connect the grounds. In the thermostat connect the black from the heater to left side black( remember there are pairs left(black, red) right (black, red) and the white to the right side black connect the black from your power to the left side red and the white from your power to the right side red. Should be ready to go.

Regardless of the wire which you intend to use for safety reasons it is best for you to use two different circuits. These equipment are heavy duty and often they could encounter little malfunctions which the circuit might not be able to support. Also it is best to use 2 circuits so in case there is ever a problem with the circuit it wont affect both units at the same time. Although running both on the single circuit will work but it is just not a safe thing to do as they are best separated.
thanks for using Fixya.
Hope this solution has been helpful?
