Question about Marley Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater, 58" 240V/1250 Watts

1 Answer

I want to install marley 240 volt hydronic baseboard electric heat in two different rooms in my upstairs attic. Each room will have its own 22amp line voltage thermostat. The total wattage for the heating units in the larger room is 2750, and the smaller room is 2250. My question: Can I run both thermostats on one 30amp circuit. I plan to use 10-2 romax wire with ground throughout the entire circuit. Specifically from my service panel to a junction box; splitting circuit to the individual thermostats, and then to individual heat units. Thanks for you help, Tom

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?

My PLF504 detonated this morning (11-25-2010). It worked fine for two years then BANG. Room was lit by flame coming from center (left to right) of unit. I wrote Marley asking them to honor the 10 year heater element warranty. Also, no burnt wires at thermostat connection, no dust bunnies on the fins. Source of fire was the fluid filled encapsulated heater core. Thank God, circuit breaker tripped and wall was tiled.

Marley B2451 wall heater

These are only 1500 watt heaters.

They 'could' heat a 20 x 20 foot room (with good, tight construction), with a slow temperture rise.

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.
