Wiring 120 Baseboard Heater


I have a 15 amp breaker that services one light, one GFCI, one bathroom fan, one blade fan and one smoke detector. Can I also add one 750w baseboard heater using 14/2 wire?

Wiring 120 Baseboard Heater


Although what you describe is possible and well within the capacity of a 15A circuit I would advise against wiring in a heater along with lights and receptacles. Baseboard heat should be wired with it's own circuit.
