Running a Linux system for such a simple task seems a bit of an overkill to me. A Raspberry Pi boots quickly but it still needs a few seconds.

If the temp switches are of the on/off type you can directly use the GPIO pins on the RPi. If they provide a variable voltage you need an A/D converter. I don't have experience using them on the RPi but it seems like an easy and cheap thing to do:
