I have Chromalox thermostats and Emerson baseboard heaters. One is model
BB-81-54, 208/250V 940/1250W. I have the instructions that came with it.
It does not say anything about duty cycle.
This house was built in 1974 and there are a lot of these or similar
units in it.
Thermostat in one room set at 90, room never gets above 65. Sometimes
63. Thermostat turns off before reaching temperature, probably
"anticipatory heating" as one respondent mentioned to my earlier post.
Question is, can I replace the thermostat with one which does not
anticipate or defeat the anticipatory heating in the existing thermostat
without damaging the baseboard heater?
That is, Can the baseboard heater be run continuously without damage?
Neither Emerson nor Chromalox seems to have any kind of e-mail or even
phone customer service.
