Installing a 120 Volt Heater Circuit
I have a heater called a Sun Twin, that states it should have a dedicated circuit. It basically claims that it is an appliance.
Do I need to run two 12-2 wires or is just one 12-2 wire sufficient to the electrical outlet I am using?
Or is the two wire configuration referring to the breaker itself in the box?
Thanks- Don B.
Hi Don - Great Electrical Repair Question!
The cost for the Romex and Breaker is not that much more. Make sure the receptacle is wired correctly - the Black Hot wire on the Brass Screw, the White Neutral wire on the Silver Screw and make sure the Ground wire is bonded at the panel and attached to the Ground Screw on the Receptacle. If you are unsure about how to do this, by all means do not take a chance, and hire a qualified electrician. Be Safe and Be Careful!
