Customer Question

i am trying to hook up a non programable thermostate to a 220 volt baseboard heater. The thermostat has 2 red wires, and 2 black wires. The end of the baseboard heater has a red and black wire joined together with the twisty cap and a ground. Does one red and one black wire from the thermostat go to the circuit box, and the other red and black to the heater itself, also a ground wire to the circuit box?
JA: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?
Customer: its just a 6 foot long baseboard heater in the sunroom
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: already have the holes drilled, and yes, i'll do the work
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: just need to know about the two sets of red and black wires in the thermostat and where they go
