Hello, I'm trying to hook up a 1000W, 240 V, NOMA Convection Heater to a Double Pole thermostat. The hardware clerk told me to run 240 wire (red, black, ground) from the electrical panel to the heater location then to run the same kind of wire from heater to thermostat location. I just bought the heater the other day and the wires on the back of it are Black, White and Ground. The installation instructions literally tell me nothing and now I am really confused.
This is my first thermostat heater I've installed and I got thinking that the thermostat serves much the same as a light switch, doesn't it?? With that said shouldn't I have run the wire from the panel to the thermostat first then to the heater??
I live in the bush so having a certified electrician just to come out will cost a couple hundred dollars. Hopefully I can find help here to save me a little $$.
Thanks in advance,
