Wanting to replace 2 baseboard heaters with odd wiring

Hello. I am trying to replace two baseboard heaters that are wired to the same thermostat currently. The thermostat is not an in-line and only has what looks to be 16 guage regular nomex wiring to it.

I cannot seem to find anything about this sort of setup and I am really not interested in tearing apart walls to run new wire to install a in-line thermostat for new baseboards.

Anyone ever seen this before?

What kind of wire is that? Do you mean Romex 14 gauge. Why do you think the thermostat is not inline?

I have only ever seen wall mounted or unit mounted baseboard t-stats.

Just to add to the above. There will be ID tags on the heaters. You can post the voltage and wattage or amperage but you will most likely have to replace them with the same ratings.
