I'm thinking of installing some electric wall heaters in a 3 bedroom apartment that I am planning to rent out. Each wall heater is 4.17 amps (https://www.eheat.com/envi-high-efficiency-whole-room-120v-plug-in-electric-panel-wall-heater-2nd-generation-hh3012t/) and I would like to install three of them. Installation is pretty simple - you just mount them to the wall and plug them into an outlet. The 20amp electrical circuit that wall heaters will be on does not have any appliances on it and does not run through the kitchen. Do you think the 20amp circuit will be able to handle the additional load from the electric wall heaters, or will it trip often? Are there any risks I should be concerned with?
Thanks for the help.
Are all the bedrooms on the same circuit ? Based on the 4amps each adding up to 12 amps I would not think it would be a problem but......
Thanks Waylon. Yep, all of the bedrooms are on the same circuit. There is also a gas wall heater that provides 50,000 BTU, but I thought it would be nice to have a wall heater in each bedroom for supplemental heat.
