Thermostat install


Not sure if this thread should post here or in Electrical but here goes.
I am wiring my shed and have decided to wire my two 1500W/120V radiant heaters to there own circuit with a line voltage thermostat. I was thinking about getting a honeywell CT410B because the price was right ($17 at sears). My question is how to connect the wires? The thermostat says it's 120/240 capable and has 4 wires - 2 black(L1 - T1) and 2 red(L2 - T2) for a positive off rather than just a lowest setting. I want to be able to turn the heat completely off when not in use. Since I am wiring 120 do I connect both line wires to the black from the circuit breaker and both load wires to the black from the heaters and twist the white wires together? Or should i just use 1 of the line and the same color load? or should I connect the black to black and white to red?

Thermostat install


wire nut red wires individually, connect L1 to hot incoming, connect T1 to heater. Do not break common or ground, if you have, then wire nut back together
