Both heaters could be on one 240 circuit using 12-2 w/ground.
They could actually be on a 15 amp 240 volt circuit using 14-2 w/ground.

Just an FYI: watts divided by volts = amps.
2 x 1000 watts heaters /240 volts = 8.33 amps total for two.

The baseboard will not have a t-sat so I'm gonna have a separate one. So I run 2 hots and a ground from panel to t-stat than from the t-stat to the baseboards? Thanks

That would be correct for a wall mount t-stat.

Could it be two elements each one 750w @ 120v ?

You select one for low or both for high ?

It also would allow for 120v or 240v.

Just a thought ?

The data sheet indicates 120volts with a dial for off-low-high. It is a cord and plug unit.


Fahrenheat LFP 6152E.
