Q: I’ve lost my installation instructions, where can I get another copy?
A: Please refer to the description tab where you can find the manuals
Q: Do I have to follow the recommended clearances in the instructions?
A: Yes. These clearances are part of the CSA/UL approval. Installing the unit in a non-recommended manner is unsafe.
Q: What is the difference between a single pole thermostat and a double pole thermostat?
A: Single pole thermostats break only one side of the power line; therefore, power is continuous to the heater. The control knob will only have a low temperature setting with no “off” position. Check with local building/electrical codes for requirements in your area.
Double pole thermostats break both sides of the power line; therefore, all power to the heater is interrupted. The control knob will have an “off” position. Check with local building/electrical codes for requirements in your area.
Q: How big a heater do I need to heat my room?
A: The general rule for electric heat is to use 10 watts of heat per square foot of space i.e. 1000 watt heater will heat 100 square feet (10’ x 10’) in a standard insulated room.
Q: What type of heater should I use?
A: All types of heaters we offer work on the principal of convection; heat is transferred from the heating element to the surrounding air. The two basic types of heater are:
- Fan Assisted Heaters
- Convection Heaters (those without a fan)
All heaters of the same wattage produce the same amount of heat and cost the same to operate, regardless of type.
Q: What is the difference between 120 and 240 volt heaters?
A: Although the heaters we manufacture are voltage specific, there are no differences in operating costs of 120-volt vs. 240-volt units if the heating appliance being used is rated at the same Power (Watts). Permanently installed heaters are usually 240-volt because more Power heaters can be installed per circuit. Circuit breaker size within the main electrical panel, as well as the circuit wire size (gauge) are minimized when 240-volt circuits are used. 120-volt heaters are usually limited to 1500 watts or less. Check local building/electrical codes for any additional requirements in your area.
Q: Are some heaters more energy efficient than others?
A: No, all electric heaters are of 100% efficiency. This means that there are no external losses (such as heat up the chimney as in gas and oil fired systems).
Q: Why should I use electric heat?
A: Electric heat has a variety of advantages:
- It’s the cheapest to install , both by material and labour.
- There’s no need for gas lines and can be used wherever electricity is available.
- It’s safe – there are no concerns about gas.
- You can control each room individually.
- It’s best suited to fixing problems in under-heated areas.
- There’s a variety of product that can be used for one project.
- It’s the best option for Do-It-Yourself installations.
Q: How do I calculate Amp draw?
A: Amps are calculated by taking the Watts and dividing by the Volts. An additional allowance of 20-25% must be added to the Amp calculation to allow for fluctuations that can occur in the power supply. It’s very important to check with building codes before selecting your breaker size requirements vary from region to region.
Q: Where can I buy your heaters?
A: Our heaters are available through distributors online, and at various electrical supply and home improvement stores.
Q: How do I hook up my thermostat?
A: To hook up your thermostat, please follow the installation instructions that came with it.
Q: I’ve just hooked up my 240-volt heater and it’s not working or barely warm?
A: The most common reason for this to happen is an error of the 240-colt connection at the power source inside the breaker/electrical panel. Consult with the original installer and/or certified electrician to check the voltage coming into the heater by using a Voltage/Multi-Meter. The meter should read 240-volts by measuring across both L1 and L2 at the same time.
Q: Can I modify my heater?
A: All heaters are UL/CSA approved as is. No modifications are allowed.
Q: Where can I get parts for my heater?
A: Some of our heaters are factory- repairable only. For field serviceable products that are within the warranty period contact Customer Service at 888-346-7539, you’ll need your model number and date code. If your heater is no longer in warranty you may contact:
