I'm contemplating purchasing a Heat Siphon dx5 and am uncertain what size wire (AWG) to run.

i know it's a 50amp 208v circuit at approx. 110' from the panel.

from my calculations i come up with #6 AWG does this sound correct?

That is one of my favorite heaters. Heat Siphon will want you to use a licensed electrician to wire the heater. They suggest #8 wire for runs of less than 100 feet and #6 wire for 110 feet. They will always say obey local codes if they are different from their recommendations too. So it looks like you know how to calculate wire. Good work. We are here if you need us.
