Works great!Dec 07, 2007
I've had a problem with a closet in my house being cold as a refrigerator during winter due to the way they built the house years ago. This closet is on an external wall and underneath the hardwood floors is the dirt from the ground, not insulation, and all that cold air underneath seeps up through the floor and wall. I decided to install one of these heaters in the closet (120V version) and a few minutes after turning it on that closet was hot as a sauna!
I will note that I'm using a standard Cadet thermostat that attaches to the end of the heater and just has the "HI" to "LO" dial settings. The problem with this type of dial is that the heater will always remain on (unless you turn the dial off). So for instance, even on the lowest "LO" setting, it's still running, and in the case of my closet, even "LO" makes it hot. I will be changing that soon to a thermostat in which I can set an actual temperature, which will prevent that from happening, not to mention also save a few bucks since the heat won't be constantly running.
I highly recommend the heater and if you have the capability, I'd recommend the 240V version, in which case you can get one of the Cadet electronic programmable thermostats. I have an old, old natural gas furnace, which is costing a fortune to run thanks to the ever-rising price of natural gas, and I'm now in the process of switching over my entire house to the 240V baseboard heaters.

installed in 1 hour... bathroom is no longer coldFeb 17, 2013
By Edward Doran
You must buy a thermostat and be sure you've got at least AWG 14 supply line (15 Amp) as this is a 500 watt 4+ Amp heater. Easy installation for the DIYer proficient in household electrical wiring. NOT recommended for person expecting to just screw this into a wall joist and plug it in... as this is not a plug-in unit and you must purchase a thermostat.

Heat for a COLD RoomFeb 23, 2013
By Anglophile Pam
After reading the reviews, I had a professional electrician install the baseboard. I also purchased the thermostat which is critical so that you can set the heat and he installed it as well.
It is 500 watts so it doesn't take much electricity and it works great. Not only that it IS MADE IN AMERICA!!! I always worry about products from China, and a baseboard that is not well constructed can cause major problems.
So this one doesn't cause blowouts like the other brand did, it keeps the room warm, and it doesn't use a lot of electricity. Overall, it was a great purchase.

Great for heating a bedroomJan 13, 2014
By Jimmy James
I added one to each bedroom in my house so each could have its own temperature. You need to have some basic electrician skills to install, but included instructions are good. It is silent when operating, but smells a little funny the first couple days you use it. Make sure you keep flammables and things that can melt (toys) away from it.
