Question about Fahrenheat Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt

2 Answers

Electric baseboard heaters goes off before heating room. Heaters only stay on for a few minutes even if I put thermostate to top setting, 85 degress. Works better with one heater per thermostat but still does not stay on long enough. Suspected thermostat gets hot from wiring, removed cover from thermostat but only slight help. I have Honeywell thermostats Model #: CT410B1017. They were wired to specs. Electric bill is out of site in winter.

There is another solution. It is costly up front but will pay for itself in a few years. Electric baseboards are very inefficient. Consider having a Mitsubishi multi zone ductless heat pump system installed. They are very quiet, energy efficient heating and cooling units that work in almost any climate. You will have to consult with a contractor to see if that's a viable option.

Check your heater sensor. Replace it, if it's defective.

How to set heat for baseboard heat


They use a 120v thermostat you should be able to buy one wherever you bought the baseboard heaters. Be aware those heaters costs a lot of money to run and dry out your house like a desert buy a few room humidifiers when you get the thermostat. Make sure you use the correct size wiring to the baseboard heaters and the Tstat if you undersize the wires for the breakers involved you'll more than likely cause a electrical fire.

#1 you have to calculate the heatloss of your rooms,that will tell you ur wattage require. Oil filled or not,it's just as dry. As far as ur load to panel breakers, a rule of thumb is approx 3600 watts for 20 amps,using a number 12 wire. But ur wall heaterS should suffice

I have base board heaters in each room and each with a thermostat and hooked to a controller. The controllers activate the heat in the base board heaters. I believe this is how it works. When you activate the thermostat, it sends a message to the controller that sends a message to the base board for heat.
The controllers are Singers. Prbkem 2:. When I turn down the thermostat (to off), I still get heat in the base board heaters. WHY.
I was going to get rid off the controllers and thermostats and buy new base board heaters at Home Depot. The thermostats are on the base board heaters. Will this work.

If i have a room 16x24 how big of a electric baseboard heater do


It is not the size of the room that is important it is the heat loss of said room. If it is a inside room, with no outside walls, it will take less btu's to heat and maintain comfort levels, where as if it is a room with floor to ceiling windows, you will obviously need more btu input. Hope this helps.

Electric baseboard heater


this is a tough call but with 2000 watts in each room there should be more than enough heat .the rooms should maintain a average temp of 73 to 78 degrees temp without weatherazation and that is of course there is no drafts coming from any windows or near a front or back door that opens and closes alot . Basiclly you have it covered but definatley get the house winterize/insulated real good.I would keep 1 or 2 space heaters on hand just incase the person in house feels there cold just to cover yourself ,usually it the female complaining its cold if its not warm enough but there have been some males that need that temp to be 80 degrees all the time.good luck but im sure it will be ok!!

Electric baseboard heaters


measure the room, then multiply the length by the width to get the square feet you want to heat. multiply this by 10 and that is the watts you need to heat the room assuming you are using standard 220/240v baseboards.

Baseboard heaters


measure each room you want to heat. multiply the length x width, this will give you the square footage of the room to be heated, multiply that by 10 and that is the number of watts needed to heat the room using 220/240v baseboards.

Need wiring help with Fahrenheat PLF754 240V baseboard heater with Fahrenheat PT2DS double-pole thermostat Open kimono - I know enough about electrical wiring to be dangerous. I have a Fahrenheat PLF754 240V baseboard heater and a Fahrenheat PT2DS (also known as Marley T2) double-pole integrated thermostat that and the heater isn't working. My power supply is a single cable with white, black, and red wires. I traced the supply line back to the circuit panel and found that the red and black wires terminate on a DP-40A breaker. The white wire is grounded. The heater has 2 red wires exiting a center tube at the end of the heater where the thermostat goes and 2 black wires exiting a small cut-out near the top of the same end. There's also a green ground wire from the heater. The thermostat has 2 red wires on the left top and bottom, 2 black wires on the right top and bottom, and a green ground wire. An electrician friend of mine (since left town) installed the wiring, heater, and thermostat for me. It worked fine for about 1 year and then stopped working. I'm trying to troubleshoot the problem but don't have any documentation on how this thing should be wired or how I might isolate the problem to the thermostat, heater, or both. I did verify that the power supply is good. Everything is currently wired as follows: Black power supply to black thermostat (top) Red power supply to black thermostat (bottom) One black heater to red thermostat (top) Other black heater to one red heater Other red heater to red thermostat (bottom) Green heater to green thermostat White power supply not connected - just wire-nutted Can anyone confirm this is the correct wiring for this configuration and, if not, what it should be? If this is correct, how best to isolate the problem? Thanks!
