Question about Fahrenheat PHH15002 Oil Filled Baseboard Heater

# I am interested in purchasing baseboard heaters, particularly I have been looking at the Farenheat PHH15002 baseboard heaters. I am purchasing an 1100 square foot 2 story condo with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs and the livingroom, dining room, kitchen and small bathroom downstairs. How do I determine how many of these I need and do they come in different lenghts. Do these heaters emit a dry heat like regular electric heaters? Also, do they need there own designated circuit? The condo has a couple of wall heaters, but the baseboard heaters would be my main source of heat.

#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 installed a 1000 watt four foot long Farenheat F2544 baseboard heater in my outdoor workshop. But it's too small for the space. I calculated that I probably need 2000 watts to heat my space. But I do not...

I could find no electrical code or mechanical code that says you can do that, so I wouldn't do that.
But have you thought of or do you have the overhead space to install a hanging unit heater? They don't require much space(just make sure you install it per manufacturers specifications) and they come in much higher BTU ratings.

### How to wire unit baseboard heater to the power to thermoster

That is a portable unit and should not be hard-wired and controlled by a wall-mounted thermostat. The unit may never cut off that way.

It is considered a "space heater" not an area heater.
