I have a baseboard heater that is currently controlled by an end-cap thermostat on the unit itself. I removed the old baseboard heater and replaced it with a new one along with the thermostat cap. It would be nice to have a wall thermostat--maybe even a smart one. Is that a difficult project? It seems like I need to find the electrical wire from the panel to the baseboard heater, cut the wire (assuming there's some slack in the line), and then install the thermostat with the line going to the thermostat and the load going to the baseboard heater. Obviously, also uninstall the end-cap thermostat on the heater.
Other relevant info info: it's a 240v 15A circuit with a 750 watt baseboard heater.
What say you? Should I hire an electrician or do it myself?
