You can use just about any digital thermostat to control the heat - as long as it takes batteries for the power source. All you are doing is closing a set of relay contacts.

A lot of folks get the inexpensive Hunter at Walmart, but Lowes, Home Dept, etc all carry quite a few of them. If you search here and around Google there are a ton of good posts with pictures and info - but it is a really simple and nice mod to do.

Lonny,

Installing a digital thermostat is one of the easiest and best mods to do. Here's some links:
