Bais Board Heaters


If you have baseboard heaters that require 220 volts (not watts), you'll need to run new circuits to the panel to serve them. The wires that serve the 110 volt circuits in the house won't do the job.

Please don't take offense, but this isn't a DIY job for you. Based on the question, you probably need to hire an electrician to help you get this done, as proficiency with wiring and working in the electrical panel will definately be required. Whether or not the panel/service needs to be upgraded and updated is really a decision for an electrician to work out with you, because there's no way for us to assist with that question without seeing what you've got and what you're wanting to put in.
