Yes, if wired correctly. But you will need relays and coils installed.
Why not just buy a baseboard thermostat? Her is what HomeDepot offers

Hi Leelee,
Yes it can, there are certain settings that you'd need to make during installation. The only setup this thermostat is not compatible with is it does not work with electric baseboard heat (120-240V) or multi-stage heating/cooling systems.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 225 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the price I installed this unit in rental property, but I still wanted some programmable features in the thermostat. This one works fine, not many bells but consider the price point. I have 3 other Honeywell stats with the wifi feature and absolutely love the control from these units. The price point is higher but worth it. Beware, if you buy the wifi model RTH6580wf You will need to have a "C" wire to power the unit. You can often find an unused wire off your existing wire from your furnace. Follow the Honeywell instructions on how to accomplish this, you can do it. http://yourhome.honeywell.com/en/products/thermostat/wi-fi-7-day-programmable-thermostat-rth6580wf July 26, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Temperature ON/OFF Cycling is too FREQUENT and can't be adjusted. Unit was easy to install and works great but you CAN NOT adjust the Temp. ON/OFF Cycling range. It comes set to +/- 1 degree. My unit is closer to +/- 0.6 degrees. Unit will be off for about 5 to 7 minutes and then it come back on. Cools the house by less than 1 degree and shuts off for about 15 minutes. When it is hot outside 90+, This cycle will continue to repeat about 7 minutes off and 10 minutes on all day. I finally have to change the temp. setting by 2 degrees and wait about 1 hour to change it back. August 8, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very small switch from COOL to OFF to HEAT. Programmable thermostat is easy to install even for a 72 year old grandmother, however the switch to turn Cool on or off is tiny. It is easy to turn switch to Heat rather than Off. Display is hard to read without holding a flashlight in my mouth. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect thermostat Bought this thermostat because it was white and not so expensive. But turns out that you can program it for the week and the weekend separately. Looking forward to setting it for the winter. August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible product. Never buy this product. First one broke down in a few months and second one broke down in less than 2 months. Each time I had to hire somebody to install them and it cost a lot of money because of horrible product. Never ever buy them. August 14, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Worked for two years The unit worked fine for two years before going the way of all cheaply-manufactured products in the 21st century. The display no longer works, and fresh batteries aren't the problem. The unit also had a tendency to "gain" time, to where I had to set it back a minute each month, or else it would be far too fast. Honeywell only has a one-year limited warranty, so I guess I'm going shopping for a new one. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just What I Needed I bought this to replace the one on my air conditioner that was NOT very user friendly. This one is very easy to program and work with. I didn't want to spend a lot of money and this was perfect. This does everything I need it to do and I just don't see the need to purchase a more expensive model. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little thermostat very nice thermostat replaced my older but more expensive Hunter thermostat Great price at $24 and works as good as much more expensive models August 16, 2016
