2500 watts, 240 volts, 1202, 75 feet. Add up?

I'm planning on running about 75 feet worth of 12 2 cable up to my attic to run two 240 volt heaters (1 1000 watt & 1500 watt). It would be fed by a 20 amp double breaker. Since I want to run individual double pole t-stats I was wondering how do most make the parallel splices at the t stats. Do you just nut three wires together? Does the rest of my plan look ok?
Thanks all.

You don't have three wires to connect together, except for the fround wires.

Run the cable to the first thermostat. Run a cable to the second thermostat. Pigtail each hot wire to the "inputs" of the thermostat.

At each thermostat run a cable to the heater it is to control.
