    I made the mistake of thinking a baseboard heater had an intermal thermostat or control board that I could hook up to a remote low voltage thermostat. I have 220 to the heater, plus a low voltage thermostat wire. I was browsing around the internet last week and found something that would work...

    I know baseboard heaters are supposed to be more efficient than heat pumps, but with today's oil prices (mine is oil to hot water heated) I wonder if a fuel pump isn't more efficient.
