Need to install more plugs

I need to install more plugs in my walk in closet. I have an electrical baseboard heater which I don't need. Can I remove the heater and replace it with an electric outlet instead?

Probably. What is the voltage and breaker size? Are there any other heaters on the same circuit?

I'm going to counter what Ray wrote and say maybe. If this no longer needed heater is on the same circuit as other heaters then most likely you will NOT be able to use the same wiring. Does this heater have a self-contained thermostat or is the thermostat on the wall?
