Customer questions and answers for
Cadet 24 in. 350 Watt 240/208 Volt Electric Baseboard Heater White

The Cadet Electric Baseboard heater utilizes convection to circulate air and provide efficient warmth. Typically installed under a window, the cool air falls from the window area as the warm air rises from the heater, causing the air to tumble gently throughout your room. The quiet operation and low cost installation make it a perfect choice for a bedroom or nursery. Rugged steel construction, with powder coated paint for a durable, premium finish. Installation is easy with a pre-punched case at 1 in. intervals, and wiring is available at either end. A thermostat is required.

Question

I want to replace the older baseboard in a bath that I am remodeling. I thought of vinyl baseboard because of the moisture. The older (wooden) baseboard was butted up against the ends of the electric baseboard heater. Can I do this with vinyl moulding or will it melt?

Hello Grannyfixit;
Yes you can butt the baseboard up to the side od the baseboard heater because the heating element is locate in the center of the unit with a space on either side. See the following installation safety owners guide guide for the Cadet Electric Baseboard Heater..

Hello and thank you for your question. Your interest is very much appreciated.

The Cadet electric baseboard heaters are permanent mount units that screw into the wood studs in the wall behind the heater. Depending on the model, they are connected or 'hard wired', to either a 120 or 240 volt electrical power supply line. On page 3 of the below link to the instruction guide, you will be able to see where the wire connections are made inside the junction boxes:
http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/7e/7ed24a24-7ecd-4fbd-aec6-5bc30ccb0f9e.pdf

We've also included a link to a video which details the installation process, and how to connect the various types of thermostat options from which you can choose.

Thanks again for taking time to ask a question.

Hello and thank you for the great question!

Sometimes it's a hard decison to make, whether to choose a baseboard or a fan. A bathroom only needs a small amount of heat, but a fan-forced unit is better because it heats up much faster. In most bathrooms there is a very limited amount of wall space, and often it's hard to find a 2' length or area where a baseboard can be installed.

A small baseboard will work fine if you have the space, but will take longer to heat up. We recommend around 1000 watts for a bathroom in a fan-forced unit that can heat up right away. The related item below is the Cadet Com-Pak Bath heater and it also incudes a timer.

As a manufacturer, we appreciate your interest and taking the time to ask!

For the bathroom, Cadet recommends a wall fan heater instead of a baseboard heater because fan heaters provide instant warmth. The ideal heaters for the bathroom are the Cadet Com-Pak Bath or The Energy Plus. We have provided links below for your convenience.

I want to keep the bathroom heater on 24/7 during the winter. Will the 24" with the thermostat do this? My bathroom is rectangular 5' x 10'.
Can it be installed at the baseboard next to the shower? (not under the window)

The heater will remain on until the temperature reaches what is set at the thermostat. We recommend you choose an electronic wall thermostat because they are very accurate. This heater should provide enough wattage to heat a room that is 50 square feet (5X10). When installing this heater in your bathroom, make sure that you keep the minimum clearances recommended which are: 12 inches in front and above heater and 6 inches to either side.

My neighbor gave me 4 of these thermostats when she ripped out her baseboard heater (she converted to forced air). I am now switching out the old baseboard heaters and non-programable thermostats in part of my house and would like to use these thermostats. Just need to make sure it will work.
