Yes you write your own code on your computer, then upload it to the Arduino.  It's really not that difficult.  Get an Arduino "starter kit" which will include the microprocessor, miscellaneous electrical components, and a manual with simple programs called "sketches" and basic circuits. Once you figure out how it acts you can build your own circuits, write your code and get it to do pretty much whatever you want.  

One of the nice things about the Arduino is you can get much closer temperature tolerances than you can with a snap switch, and you can run a small LCD display that will tell you what is going on with the collector.

A differential thermostat will also work.
