panel breaker question


Right now I have a sub panel and it has 2 20amp single pole breakers that are being used for other things ( 1 a 220 volt plug and 1 for a heater ). Those 2 aren't being used and I want to install baseboards in my bedroom.

My question is: Can I remove those 2 single pole breakers and install a 20amp double pole breaker??

I want to install 2 baseboards on 1 thermostat.

Would this work??

panel breaker question


it depends what the load of the heaters is. The thermostat also must be able to handle the load of both heaters as well.


as to the current situation; you should have had a 2 pole breaker there already.

so, what size are the heaters?
