240v baseboard heaters

I want to wire 3 1000w heaters on the same circuit in three different rooms. I have existing 2 wire run to 2 existing heaters and am adding one more. I'm looking for a wiring diagram to figure this out.

240v baseboard heaters

What size wire is there?


With Electricity there is the right way to do it and the dead way. Just because it works does not make it safe.

240v baseboard heaters

Where is the thermostat? Will the new unit be controlled with the others or a new T-stat?
Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.
