An licensed electrician is required to do ANY electrical work in your home. If your house burns and your insurance company finds out you did your own electrical work, they will not honor your claim.

Your standard baseboard must be at 240v if you want to replace it with this item.

There should be two wires, a black and red, or black and white wire, plus ground. Just simply replace the existing baseboard with this product using the exact same connections.

Make sure power is turned off before doing any electrical work.

It is impossible for electrical heaters to be efficient. A watt is a unit of energy over time. An analogy would be to set your thermostat to 15 degrees and expect your room to warm up to 20 degrees.

The term "energy efficient", as we know it, primarily means that manufacturers have be able to reduce the amount of wasted energy for a motor, and most energy is wasted as either noise or heat.

Since electric heaters have no motor, if you put in 1000 watts of energy, you will get out 1000 watts of heat. There is no way to only put in 500 watts of energy and get out 1000 watts of heat

Specs and installation instructions

I am not too impressed by the lack of availability of spec info and installation instructions. Most products have this available on-line. I can't even find a manufacturers site for NOMA heaters. Is it possible for you to make this available?

After calling the manufacturer their staff was unable to answer basic questions such as 'How hot does the surface get - I want to place the heater in my childrens room.' I got hung up on when I asked, 'Has the heater been tested for an energy star rating, what would it cost to run the heater on an average daily basis?' If you call be prepared to give your personal phone number before they will answer anything. Call 800-459-4409 to see if you have better luck.

I was checking in to this product as well. This is what I found out. It's made by Quality Craft Home Decor and here is their site directly to the heater:
http://www.qualitycraft.com/products/homedecor/convectionheaters/qcc1000
It has a manual there that may be able to answer any of your questions. Good luck.

How hot does the surface get?

The manual online warns that it gets hot and not to leave children unattended. I want this for my daughter's playroom...is it safe for that? Anyone know how hot it gets (in general terms)?

The unit gets hot like any other electrical heater (baseboard or convector). It is always best to be cautious when operating.

These heaters will run on 110 volts, but you will only get 25% of the rated heat. A 2000 watt heater rated at 220 volts will produce 500 watts of heat at 110 volts. Half the voltage will produce half the current, therefore we get:

voltage x current = watts
.5 voltage x .5 current = .25 watts.

500 watts x .25 = 125 watts.

No this heater will only run on 240 volts. And it must be hard-wired.

Did you check the temperature breaker for continuity. Mine worked good for a year then this little switch on the inside back of the heater has failed and I can't find where to replace it. I was told you can't buy repair parts I should just discard it and buy a new one.I can jumper it out but too dangerous to leave it that way. 2000 watts

Measure the to see if there is an element resistance.
R- V^2/P = 115.2 ohms for 500 watt heater.
R- 28.8 ohms for 2000 watt heater. (more or less).

The convection needs a power supply of 240V/60Hz and will require a certified electrician to install it. Do not connect the 110V power supply directly. Use the transformer which the electric current exceeds 15Amp.

This is because you have to connect it to 240V. You will probably need to install a new breaker and wires from the breaker to the unit. You should ask an electrician to do the installation.

No more than a standard baseboard. If you are replacing an existing Baseboard for this, make sure you use one with the same wattage.
If you are replacing for a higher wattage, make sure you are not going over the brakers capacity.

Watts = Voltage X Amps

To know how many watts you should use in a room. In a well insulated room for electric heat:

calculating the width X length X height X 1.5 divided by 250 watts per foot of heater. This will tell you the minimum heat required to heat that room.

On regular baseboard, calculate watts of the heater multiply the number of feet long the heater is times 250 watts per foot to find watts of that heater.

To calculate how many watts you may put on a 20 amp 240 volt branch circuit.
Typically, you would be able to install 4800 watts per 20 amp branch circuit @ 100%. I advise not to exceed 80 % load on each 20 amp branch circuit.
