Round junction box but needs to be rectangle? Now what...
Not sure if there is any way around this but I have a round junction box that we wired in the wires for 2 electric baseboard heaters and then a thermostat wire too. Now I come to find out that all line voltage thermostats are the small rectangular ones - not the old fashion round ones. Now what can I do??
I have been searching the internet high and low for a thermostat that is large enough to cover the round box (need 5 inches by 5 inches at least). I am even willing to buy those wall plates or cover plates that go behind your thermostats but I can't seem to find the right ones.
My electrician told me I need a 4 wire line voltage thermostat.
Anyone have any ideas of what I can do? I know - cut the drywall away and replace the box - but is there another way. It is all textured and painted already.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
