My inlaws have a well house with a simple light bulb inside that they turn on when temps drop below freezing. It is getting harder for them to get around and hard for them to get into the well house.

Is there such a thing as some sort of thermostat control that can be rigged to turn on the light bulb when the temps get below freezing?

They make a line voltage version of thermostat. Connect it to a receptacle.
