SOURCE: wiring for baseboard heater

I hope you are using a Line Voltage Thermostat!! First, make sure that the power feeding the thermostat is coming from a two pole breaker of the correct amperage (20 amp). If you are using 12-2 wire with ground then please mark the white wire with black tape at each end to identify it as a HOT power source and not a Neutral wire (which is a grounded lead). Do the same for the 12-2 wires feeding the baseboard heater from the Line Voltage Thermostat. The wires from the thermostat (One Black & one White w/black tape) will be wired to each one of the two wires (one Black & one Red or two Black wires) at the baseboard heater. It doesn't matter which wire from the thermostat is wired to which wire at the heater, just as long as there is one wire to one and one wire to the other.(eg. Black from stat to Black at heater/White w/blk. tape from stat to Red at heater OR Black from stat to Black at heater/White w/blk. tape from stat to OTHER Black at heater). I have seen baseboard heaters with two black wires or one black and one red wire. Hope this helps, but if you are confused then please have an experienced tech. do it for you.

SOURCE: I'm replacing a non-hydronic electric baseboard

Hello. The red and the black are the hot wires. Therefore, connect one of your conductors to the red and the other conductor to the black. Use wirenuts. The bare ground wire should be solidly attached to the new unit's green wire using a wire nut.

Two wires to the T-stat should go to W and C which is W for heat call and C represents common!
When the T-stat is set to heat it will connect the 24v red wire to the W terminal therfore sending 24v to the heater and the common wire completes that circuit. Make sure to use an inline fused wire to test so you do not blow your transformer. Easier to replace a fuse then a T-form

What is it that you are trying to do? Do you have a piece of hot water baseboard heater and you want to 'power' it with an electric hot water heater?

Codes aside, I don't see why it would not work. You will have to put a circulator (and a temp control device) on it to move the water.

This is not going to be a very economical heating system.

I want to install 240v baseboard htrs in a below ground basement.


you must really love your hydro co
those heaters are a huge draw on your bill
why not install radiant heat they are cheep now in compairison
the unit is a central mount run the line in a loop arround basement and conect all the heaters in drop lines off the main line small thermostat valve for each room to control heat
cost is more for unit but savings are greater too they now make a light duty units designed for your porpose
single direct electric heaters are pigs on the hydro bell if you have gas or electric it is cheeper to run a small boiler or heat on demand system

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.
