Chromalox baseboard heaters can be installed without a professional. The manufacturer provides detailed installation instructions on its website, and these manuals state that the company makes individual equipment and safety recommendations upon request.
Although Chromalox's baseboard heaters do not require professional installation, they do require special equipment, safety precautions and a knowledge of local and state building codes and the National Electrical code. Electrical wiring is governed by these local, state and federal regulations due to the large-scale fire hazard of improper wiring. Chromalox recommends but does not require that this portion of the installation be handled by a certified electrician.
