I've read that it's good for your tank to swing a few degrees in the control cycle. It leads to hardier livestock that won't get stressed by small fluctuations. So I intentionally have mine swinging at least 3degF. This seems especially appropriate for Houston where the power isn't reliable. My tank is normally ~78degF but dropped down to as low as 72degF in the freeze and I had no issues.
