    Is there a temperature controlled power outlet that will let me set a starting temp and stopping temp?

    I have a woodstove and I have a separate blower fan connected to it i want to make the fan kick on when the stove heats the basement up to a certain temp and then to shut off the fan once it cools down to a certain temp. there are tubes in the stove and the fan blows that heat out into the room to provide more heat than just the stove itself.

    basically so the fan either isn't running when the stove isn't putting out heat or if i don't need to keep the stove going and forget to go down and turn the fan off.

    a thermostat from teh hardware, and a relay would be fine, though you may need a 24v power supply for the thermostat.
