Huh? Do you have two single 20 amp breakers to get the 240 volts? If so that's still 20 amps.

If you do have a 40 amp breaker, that's too big as max fuse size for your heater is 30 amps.The wire could overheat before the breaker trips.

If you run a cord to plug it in , it should be tied to the cieling using a mesh type hanger.
