Baseboard Heater


Hello All, how do you install the hookup at rough-in stage for this baseboard heater?

I have never installed one before so am guessing it does not take a regular outlet box?

Thanks

Are you using a hardwired thermostat or the remote?

You'll need to purchase the integral thermostat as well, or a wall mounted 240 volt thermostat. These BB units are hardwired directly to the cable from the wall.

It will be a wall mounted thermostat 22amps 240v controlling 4 units on a 20amp breaker. A cable clamp will be used to connect the wire directly to the unit so the wire sticks out the finnish wall till the unit is installed?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, that's how to do it. Just make sure to mark your whites as hot and there are no electrical outlets placed above these heaters.
