  • New Wiring for Electric Baseboard Heater

    I have a 3 Seasons Room Im working on turning into an office. Its insulated and could be comfortable with heating. I can't tap into the house heating because the house is on a slab it would be to difficult to do.

    I found baseboard heaters and it looks like a good idea. When I look at the options out there the only way to do this project seems to be to have an electrician come out and starts a new circuit from the breaker and then wire the heaters from there.

    Is there any way to wire new heaters from the circuit that is already run in the room?

    Welcome to the forum.
    Short answer is No, unless you have a 240 volt circuit running to that room, which I doubt very much. For some quick help without waiting for a lot of people to jump in here, check out the "baseboard wiring question" in this forum below. Should answer a lot of your questions for you. Hope this helps. If it doesn't come on back and ask again. We've got a lot of good people willing to help out.
