    Re: 220 V baseboard heater wiring

    I don't know if it was grade school theory, but I think I remember this line to line stuff. The alternating phases on this line to line...it's like the push/pull of the hand saw doing work...or at least that's how it was described.

    I appreciate the responses. I always do my wiring to code, but still won't work on it until I fully understand what I am doing and why.

      Hi Jim,

      I am in the process of installing baseboard heaters myself, and I believe you are correct. Single pole thermostats are never really off - you have to turn the breaker off to completely kill the power.

      Double pole thermostats do have an off.

      I was in a similar predicament with the selection of Home Depot and instead settled on this one online:

      I see they shipped from Grainger (or Acklands-Grainger Inc. in Canada). You might check there if you would rather buy local.
