I want to install two electric baseboard heaters in my basement. I have already run 12-2 from my panel to the thermostat and 12-2 to a junction box. From the j-box I ran seperate lines to each location where I want to put the heaters. I am using 20 amp double pole breaker and plan on wiring at 220volts. I want to put a 6 foot heater and an 8 foot heater totaling around 3300 watts so I believe that I am well under the max amount of watts. My question is this, right where I want to install the 8 foot heater is where I plan on putting my computer work station. If I notch out the leg of the work station to allow for baseboard heater How much clearance do I need for heater? Thanks

You probably need a lot of clearance if is a resistance heater,in any case check with the manufacturer. There are more efficient heaters with oil filled elements which don't get as hot. Also you have to be careful with your power cords. Permanent electric baseboard heat may not be located under wall receptacles. You may have to install a recptacle kit in the baseboard to meet the code requirements.
