Do I need a line voltage or low voltage thermostat?

A line voltage thermostat is typically used with single-room heaters, such as electric wall heaters or electric baseboard heaters.

Low voltage thermostats are typically used to control central heating and cooling systems.

Please note! Only use a low voltage thermostat with a Cadet heater if:

  • The amperage load exceeds the rating of the line voltage thermostat, AND
  • It’s combined with a relay
