Bathroom Heater Electrical Wiring

In-Wall Heater Electrical Wiring

Electrical Question: I would like to replace a Markel in-wall heater that I installed in a small bathroom approximately 10 years ago.

The wall heater model is HF4003TA-RP, Finish Ivory, Standard Grille with a Built-In Thermostat and Wall Box, PCN 03210102, UPC 686334321013, Volts 240/208, Watts 1000/750.

  1. Is the thermostat switch single pole or double pole? See photo. Only the incoming black wire passes through the switch, so I am guessing single pole. I am very handy with wiring; I just don’t know the terminology.
  2.  When I order a replacement, they offer either single pole or double pole. Which should I get? Is double pole better?
  3.  My wife complains that the heater does not heat the room well enough. Markel offers units in 1000, 1500, and 2000 watts. My wiring is 2 pole  20 amp circuits, dedicated to this heater only.

Am I right that the wiring would support 2000 watts without a problem?
