Hope I did this right!

I wired 12-2 with ground.

from my Main panel to 3 separate thermostats.
From each thermastat 12-2 with ground to each baseboard heater.

Now I can just throw in the double pole thermostats and a 240 volt 20 amp breaker everything is cool (I mean hot) right?

I will be using 1 1500 watt
and 2 1000 watt heaters.

Does the 80 percent rule apply to this?

240v X20 amps = 4800 watts.
80% of 4800 watts = 3840 watts usable.

Thanks people
