    Were you able to secure thermostats? How are your units working now?

take a close look at the tubular element with a magnifying glass. the volts value should be stamped into the element. most baseboard heaters are 240 volt at low, high and medium density. wattage could be from 750 to 1500 watts

Can I change out a Hayward H400ID with an electric heater for the spa only? If so what electric heater product brand would you recommned. Raypak?


Hayward has manuals for each type heater, gas and electric.
http://www.hayward-pool.com/prd/In-Ground-Pool-Manuals_10201_10551_14502_-1___I.htm
Hayward also has contact page, and can probably recommend correct change-over product.

You want to switch from propane to heat-pump type.

There are likely 3 areas of difference. Read each manual and generally look for 1) unit size and capability to match spa 2) pipe connections and sizes 3) Electrical requirement

From electrical standpoint, You need GFCI-protected line from circuit breaker box, or GFCI (arc-fault) breaker. This will prevent electrocution risk around spa.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GFCI.html

Wire sizes are based on volts and watt-rating of heater.
Each electrical device has rating plate showing volts and watts.
3500 watts divided by 240 volts = 14.5 amps so install double-pole 20 amp breaker and use 12 gauge wire.
1500 watts divided by 120 volts = 12.5 amps so install sinle-pole 20 amp breaker and 12 gauge wire.

I have a base board heater in the basement. It's never been connect up the wiring is all there from the breaker box to the heater,it has 1blk.1white and the ground. heater has 1blk. 1 red & therostat


You need to take a meter and see if you have 220 volts between the black and white. if you do have 220 then hook white wire to the red on the on the thermostat and the black to the black wire on the thermostat. on the other side of the thermostat hook the red and black to the red and black to the heater

How many amps is the Honeywell HWLHZ370


Your heater is a 1500 watt model. Based on a house voltage of 110 Volts AC you should have about a 13.64 amp load. You might consider it a 15 amp unit to play it safe.

I have a trailer house that has a 100 amp breaker box in it. I has gas for heat, water heater and stove. I am changing them to electric. Will I need to change the panel put to a 200 amp.


Its probably not a bad idea. Thats alot for a 100A panel to handle, a range needs a 50A, a water heater needs 30A, and the heat will need a 50A or a 60A breaker... Plus whatever else is in the house will be a bit more than the 100A service can handle. But if you don't have the money it will do for a while because for the most part they won't all be pulling at the same time. Word to the wise get at least a 30 space panel when you upgrade, I always install a 40 space panel because for the cost difference its well worth it for future needs because you'll fill it up quicker than you think and you'll have space for anything else you may want to add later on. Hope I helped

How many amps is this model


Like all 1500 watt appliances, 12.5. You divide the watts by the volts to get the amps (except for reactive loads like motors etc.). Why do you ask? Is it popping breakers?

Purchased "Reliance Lowboy electric water heater"


The water heater has two 4500 watt elements.
However both elements are not turned-ON at same time
So the water heater is 4500 Watts

Volts x Amps = watts
Amps =watts divided by volts
Amps = 4500 Watts divided by 240 Volts
Amps= 18.75

So that says a 20 amp breaker ... except for the 80% rule
80% rules says for safety, your Amp rating should be multiplied by 80%

20 amp breaker X 80% = 16 amps
20 amp breaker is actually safe for just 16 amps, and your water heater draws 18.75 amps.

The calculation shows you need a 30 Amp breaker.
30 Amp breaker requires 10 gauge wire.

What is the recommended circuit breaker for a 220 volt connection to a 6' baseboard heater


depends upon wattage of baseboard. I would guess about 20 -30 amps. Amps = Watts/Volts. Example, 1500 watts/220 volts = breaker size of 6.8 amps (add 25%) The only breaker available is a 15 amp breaker.

Your unit is 515 Watts using 115V (line to ground.)

Maytag M3X05F2A

Specifications:
• Volts 115
• EER 9.7
• Amps 5.0
• Watts 515
• Plug cap. amps 125/15
• Pints per hour 1.4
• Room air (CFM) 160
Room Size:
• 10' x 15'
• 150 sq. ft.
If you plan on using it in the Philippines the electrical power supply is 220V line to ground. You can use an Auto Voltage Regulator (AVR) which has an internal winding with a servo that moves a carbon brush across the winding. I would recommend that you use at least a 1500 Watt AVR as the longer you use it the hotter it will get. Hopefully you can find an AVR with 3 pronged outlets. I currently use 3 ea. SIEG models SVC-888-1000 VA (600 Watts) for most electronics and 1 SVC-888-1500VA on a small 11 Cu Ft. freezer. The Freezer is 626W but uses almost 700W during the defrost cycle. The AVR failed after 3 years due to overheating. (STINK!) I also have a 4th SEIG model SVC-888-3000VA on my 21 Cu Ft 115V Refrigerator. There are other AVR manufacturers here and the cost vary greatly by manufacturer. (P3300 - P6500 depending on model) I have has all of my AVRs in countinous service for almost 6 years.
