The electric baseboard heater uses convection to circulate air. By
superior design and proper placement under a window area, the electric baseboard
case causes air to flow naturally. The cold air falls from the window area as
the warm air rises from the heater, causing the air to tumble gently throughout
the room. The electric baseboard heater is the number one choice for low cost
installation, and the quiet operation makes it the preferred heater for
bedrooms. Cadet recommends a wall-mounted thermostat for optimum performance, or
you may prefer the convenience of an optional field mount thermostat kit.
Electric baseboard heaters shall be UL Listed, factory rated at 120V,
208V, and dual rated from 208V to 240V. Element shall be steel sheathed calrod
element with channel shaped aluminum fins. A full length capillary sensor tube
shall be an integral part of each unit. Case, cover, and deflector shall be made
of 24 gauge steel with 20 gauge junction box containing a grounding pigtail. All
metal pieces shall be finished with a powder coat paint system.
Baseboard heaters work best when placed under a window and at least
1' from furniture or other objects. Keep at least 12" minimum from objects
hanging above (i.e., drapes). Do not install below electrical outlets.
The electric baseboard heater may be placed directly on the floor and mounted to
the wall. There are only a few exceptions listed in the installation
An optional Cadet MTX mounting tool is helpful for installing the heater.
Originally designed for mounting baseboard heaters, its applications are
A matching single pole (BTF1) or double pole (BTF2) bimetal thermostat is
available to install into either end of the baseboard heater. Since an
electrical outlet may not be installed above a heater (National Electric Code),
use a Cadet BRF12 duplex outlet in either end of the baseboard to meet local
building codes. To switch between the Cadet baseboard heater and a cooling unit,
the LTF240 can be utilized. Inside corner connectors are available to fit
various designs, such as corner window areas.
