Installing a programmable thermostat for electric baseboard heaters.
We currently have two 240 v baseboard heaters in our master bedroom, attached to one old double pole thermostat. Want to replace it with a programmable. Bought a honeywell off amazon for use with electric baseboard, but it throws the breakers (heaters are on a double breaker). Maybe it can't handle two heaters together? In the wall we have two sets of wires (each set has a black and a white - I assume one for the heater and one to the power source). Any advice is appreciated!!
