Yes, a #10 wire will carry 30 amps for 30 feet. If the load is rated as continuous then the wire will have to be derated to 80% capacity which will leave you with 24 workable amps. If the load demands currents higher that 24 amps then you will have to go to the next wire size up which is a #8 which is rated at 45 amps.

Yes. A 12 AWG wire can safely carry 20 amps. Since it can carry 20 amps, it can certainly carry 15 amps safely as well. However... Sometimes a 15 amp outlet will be unable to handle the extra size of the 12 AWG wire.

AWG # 14 is the smallest wire you can install in a home and it can only be used in living areas. It will carry 15 amps.

2 AWG in Aluminium is required.

Yes the ampacity of #12 is 20 amps whereas the ampacity of #14 is 15 amps, so you are well within the range using #12 wire.

15 amps requires AWG # 14 wire.

Look on the heater and see what amps it is pulling. That will determine the wire size and breaker size. It must be on a dedicated circuit. 15 amps = AWG # 14 wire with 15 amp breaker 20 amps = AWG # 12 wire with 20 amp breaker 30 amps = AWG # 10 wire with 30 amp breaker 40 amps = AWG # 8 wire with 40 amp breaker

10 awg wire can have a breaker size of 30amps. It can actually carry more but as for codes the wire is usually allowed to carry 80% of its max capability which puts the breaker at a max size of 30 amps.
