Default Living in a hot climate?

Hello! So this will be the first summer that I have a heated aquarium. I'm wondering a few things.

I live in the desert (las vegas) does anyone else live in a warm climate? Hopefully someone with experience can help out.

Summer is approaching and it will be getting very hot, normally while at work I do not keep my Air Conditioning on. I'm wonder what changes need to be made for the summer.

Should I turn down my tank heater? Turn off? Will I need to start keeping the AC on just for the tank? How warm will my tank get in relationship to my room temperature? (its a 55g tank)

I would like the tank to remain around 78-80f I would say the hottest the room could get without AC is 88f.
