Question

fan / baseboard heater question


Hi,
Can I put a fan forced wall insert heater on the same thermostat as a 750W baseboard heater? I'm looking at putting a Dimplex 1000W fan forced wall insert heater on the same thermostat as a 750W baseboard heater in the same room.
Thanks!

If it is on a 20A circuit, yes.

It is a 20A circuit with a few more heaters and thermostats combinations on that circuit. Total wattage on the 20A circuit will be less than 3800Watts.

Thermostats are not usually rated in watts. They're normally rated in volts and amps.

Most wall-mount heater thermostats are rated 25 amps at 120 or 240 volts.

If the thermostat is UL listed, it'll have its rating marked on it.

A thermostat can control any load for which it is rated. One single load or any combination of loads.

Your installation is perfectly fine.
