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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should there be a white wire on my baseboard?
The white wire is only used on Cadet 120 volt baseboard heaters. A 240 volt baseboard heater has black wires on both sides.
Which set of wires should I disconnect?
Cadet baseboard heaters can be wired on either side, so only 1 factory loop of wires needs to be disconnected.
Can I run my supply wires through the metal channel (raceway) on baseboard?
No, the baseboard heater is not UL Listed as a wire raceway. Wires should be run inside the wall.
Can I move the ground wire?
Yes, Cadet baseboard heaters are provided with a ground wire that can be wired on either side. Check both sides of heater and relocate ground wire if needed.
Can I use 1 thermostat to control more than 1 baseboard heater?
Built-in thermostats (mounted directly on baseboard) are designed for single heater use. However, it is possible to control more than 1 heater on a wall thermostat if the thermostat rating is not exceeded.
hould I use screws or nails to mount the baseboard heater?
Screws should be used to secure your baseboard heater to the studs in your wall by using the pre-punched “stars” at 1 inch intervals on the back of the heater. See your Owner’s Guide for detailed information on installing your baseboard heater.
Can I mount the baseboard heater near the ceiling?
No, the baseboard should be mounted at the floor level to heat your room effectively. If installed on carpet, the bottom of the baseboard should be mounted evenly with the carpet height.
Can I mount the baseboard heater vertically, sideways or diagonally?
Baseboard heaters must be mounted horizontally, and near or at floor level only.
Can the installation of a baseboard heater be recessed?
No, recessing the heater could cause excessive heat to be concentrated in the wall area causing a potential fire hazard.
Can I mount my baseboard heater on the floor or paneled wall?
Yes, baseboard heaters can be mounted on the floor. However, do not allow carpet to block lower air intake located 1” from the bottom. Baseboard heaters can be mounted against sheetrock, wallpaper, and wood products such as paneling, particleboard, chipboard, and tongue and groove. Do not install on paperboard or low-density fiberboard surfaces.
