If you have the electrical skill-set, anything can be done. The built-in thermostat is also the on/off switch. You would have to provide for that to take advantage of the heater's fan function. The fan comes on after the heating element is hot, and stops after the heating element cools down. Nice feature, like a forced air furnace.

Question

What type of thermostat can be used with this heater?

I like this heater, but I want to install it in a garage with a 13-foot ceiling (which will make it difficult to reach the control knob). I'm thinking that a thermostat would be preferred, so I don't need to pre-set the temp knob and switch it on and off at the breaker box.

Yes you can do that. You will want to use the same contacts that the internal thermostat has. You can wire in series with the thermostat.

answer 2
I have a switch installed in a steel box directly on the unit that is all I use to turn it on/off. It works fine, and I am sure you could wire it in the wall, but it would require more wire, and I preferred to it this way. Just make sure you get a switch capable of handling the current.
