I am installing an electric kickspace/toe kick heater as part of my kitchen remodel. I do not quite understand how to transition the supply wiring from inside the wall to the space underneath of the cabinet where the heater will located.
It seems if I used a junction box that is secured inside of the wall (like all standard receptacle/switch installations), there would not be a way to get the wire into the living space (requirement for the junction box to be closed up with a faceplate).
If I mount a junction box outside of the wall, so I can use the side entrances/exits for the wires in the living space, then the supply wire would just exit the wall unprotected for a small distance - I don't think that is code compliant (please correct me if I am wrong).
Any advice would be helpful. NEC 2014 applies in my area and the work will be inspected.
