Installation of the K Series Baseboard Heaters require a thermostat (sold separately). Your choice of single pole thermostat or double pole thermostat is available. Both thermostats flexible hook-up for installation on either the left or right end of the baseboard heater. A single pole thermostat features settings from low to high with no actual "off". If the thermostat is set at the lowest point and the temperature falls below that, the heater will go on. A double pole thermostat has an actual "off" setting. When the thermostat is set to off, the heater will not turn on regardless of the room temperature. This is a great safety option, but the choice is ultimately yours!
