The simple answer is if it is on a stat then no you cant get extra heat from it mate.The other alternative is to get a heat cable and run that round the box and connect it to a stat making sure they cable does not touch itself or it will burn through and short out.The cheapest option is to get another poly box and fit the largest heat mat you can into it then control the heat with the stat.
