Electronic programmable thermostats 20A for electr. Baseboard heaters

Could somebody recommend a 20A or higher rated thermostat. I need to control 3 heaters, total 18 linear feet , with one thermostat.
Thank you

Hi,the best bet would be to install a relay and control it with the low voltage Programable Stat powered with batteries.[url]http://s3.supplyhouse.com/manuals/1262371443684/22995_PROD_FILE.pdf, there maybe other models that would supply 24 volts for the Stat out there.

The Aube RC840T-240 is a popular transformer/relay combination. Any thermostat of your choice(including wifi types) will operate this relay. At 240v it's good for 22A (5280 watts)
