I have a FahrenheatPro. and it doesn't seems to not throw out hea


the baseboard heaters out put goes down a lot more than you would think when used on 120 volts ... thats because not only is the voltage half of what it should be, the current is also half .. so the total power (the product of voltage and current) is one fourth of what it would be if operated on 240 volts .. you are operating at only 186 watts instead of the 750 watts you should have .. so you would have to have 4 times as many heaters for the same heat output .. you likely have the 240 volts available (most houses do) .. there are two phases .. each 120 volts .. when both phases are used together then you get the 240 volts total .. another option is you can use heaters designed for 120 volts .. the current would increase to a little more than 6 amps per heater .. some heaters have a jumper you can move for 120 volt service or 240 volt service... you can use those with either voltage ..

Heater is not heating up.


First, is this a 120 VAC or 240 VAC heater? 120 VAC heater will usually have one Black & one White wire and 240 VAC heater will usually have two Black wires or one Black & one Red wire. If it is a 120 VAC heater then you need to supply the white wire at the heater with a neutral (white) wire from the breaker panel. If it is a 240 VAC heater then you need to verify that you have 240 VAC at the heater from Black lead to Red lead. If you are not sure about how to do this please have an experienced electrician look at it so you don't get electrocuted and/or burn up your new heater. Hope this helps!

Marley electric 3ft. basebord ,wiring w/thermostat


If your baseboard heater is rated at 220 VAC and you have wired it to a 120 VAC source then the heater will only produce about 1/4 of its rated output wattage. So, if you have a 2000 W / 240 V heater it will only produce about 500 W at 120 V. You may want to have an experienced technician wire it for you if you are not sure what you are doing. Please be careful and smart when dealing with electricity!!

Replacing old with new


Are the heaters rated at the same voltage, if so just connect the white to one heater wires and the black to the other heater wire..Does the white wire have a tape around it. If it does that indicates that it is a 120 volt cuircuit and not a neutral, which means you have a 240 volt supply. Make sure your heater is 240 vac.

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

Basboard heater installation


if the heater is 120 volt or 240 volt its really pretty easy. at either end is a cover. remove the cover and you'll see a wirenut or maybe just two wires. one side has an integral thermostat. connect your supply to the two wires on the thermostat. connect the other end in your breaker box with the appropriate sized circuit breaker. wire size feeding it will depend on its current draw. how many watts is the heater? 1500 watts will draw 6.25 amps at 240 volts so you can use 14 ga wire. 2000 watts will draw 8.3 at 240 volts - so 14 ga is still ok. 2500 watts at 240 draws 10.41 amps. 3000 watts draws 12.5 amps at this stage I'd use 12 gauge on a 20 amp breaker.
