Installing 240V baseboard heater and thermostat


I live in Virginia which is either 110 or 120 current (?). I'm getting a cadet baseboard heater. To get a matching thermostat I need to go to the 240 V model. I'm told by home depot that I can plug that into my standard household socket? Does that sound right?

Your house power is 240 Volts. Do you have an electric range, electric dryer, or air conditioning? If so, look in your breaker box and you should see a breaker with a tie bar or a double wide breaker with a single lever. Those are 240 volt breakers.
What size Cadet are you putting in?
