Sounds as though you have either baseboard units or in-wall propeller units.
Electric heaters use a relay (contacter) controlled through a low voltage x-former in order to use the progamable thermostats.
The heating savings in electric heat is through the zone control philosophy.
You may not gain much with a programmable unless you forget & leave the heat up alot.
