Temperature Sensor Switch

I'm looking for a unit that works like a timer to turn a light on but instead uses temperature. I want it to put a fan to come on when the temperature reaches a set temp.

I heard of people also using them in their house when they are away for the winter. You plug a lamp into this temp. sensor unit which, in turn, is plugged into an outlet. If the furnace quits and the temp drops, it turns a light on to alert neighbors that there is a problem.

Any idea who makes and where I can buy???

Look at well stocked electrical supply or grainger for heater control, simple like a lite switch except the knob has temperature

Fan-tastic ceiling roof vent has a model that has a temperature sensor. Might check with them and see if you can buy the sensor part separately.

It's called a thermostat, or thermostatically controlled switch. They come in a variety of temperature ranges and electrical capacities (voltage and amperage).

Is the fan 120v or 12vdc? Does it plug in or will it be hardwired? Indoors or exposed to weather? There are thermostat switches for each of those circumstances.

The Granger catalog probably has them all.
