baseboard heater + outlet

I'm installing a 2000 watt baseboard heater on a 240v, 20A circuit. Since I can't install receptacles above the heater, I'd like to use the optional add-on receptacle that goes on the end of the heater. Will this receptacle be wired into the same circuit as the heater itself? Or do I need to connect it to the room's general 120v, 20A circuit?
Thanks for any advice.

Read the instructions that came with the baseboard heater. If they don't specifically say that an outlet is NOT allowed above the heater, it is allowed. The instructions will also tell you how to wire the outlet.
