Installing baseboardheaters
I would like to install two six foot 1500 watt heaters in a new room addition, I have run 10/2 with ground can I run them on 120? If so can they be on the same circuit in paralell with a thermostat. If so can I use a single 30 ampe breaker for this.

Check the box or instructions,you need to find out if they are rated at 120 volts or 240 volts. Probably 240.

Chances are these will be 240V heaters, and putting that on a 30A breaker with 10/2 would be acceptiable.

Depending where you live will decide if these can be run from 120 on a 30A breaker. In Canada this would not be allowed but the NEC is dierrent then our codes/
