Electric baseboard

I am starting to remodel a 3 season porch. I currently have a section of electric baseboard that is 8' long, and the power to it is 220V with a 20A breaker. It has a knob on one end that is used to adjust the heat. My question: is it possible to retrofit this with a line voltage T-stat? Or do you need more information; I know this isn't a lot to go on. Thanks!

Actually, it already has a line voltage thermostat. I am guessing that you want to use a thermostat located somewhere else in the room.

You add the thermostat where you want it, run a cable from the heater to the thermostat, then from the thermostat back to the heater. Leave the heater always on high, then use the thermostat to control the temperature.
