What I did do is purchase a Lux plug-in thermostat* for my electric heat cube to keep the heat even, and I've been pleasantly surprised at how comfortable that little unit keeps my entire rig. And there's very little noise involved, compared to the AC fan (which would also run for the heat pump), which is deafening.

*(If you buy one of these, read the instructions. Any temperature you set is temporary only for one day, then it reverts to the programmed defaults. Confused the heck out of us until I discovered I needed to change the seven-day program to the temperature we liked. Had I realized this, I would have bought one of their simpler models, of which they offer tons.)

I've now purchased two of those thermostats. They turn a clearance aisle $10 electric heater into a precise heating system. I've also used it with a cheap window air conditioner in the house.
