I would think that it would be easier to re-wire the motor for 115V.
Then a bathroom heat lamp timer would be the solution.
On the motor, or under the capacitor cover there should be a wiring diagram for 115V. A 1/2 HP motor doesn't "need" 220V to operate efficiently.
Use the right tool for the job.
