I'd ditch the heater entirely. All of my tanks thrive when they're in the 60s. They're just okay/do fine in the low 70s - nothing like the cooler temps, though.

Best bet is to set your cooling device to kick on when things hit, say, 73 and don't worry about keeping the tank warm at all. It'll be fine even in the 50s. But if your tank is constantly in the 50s? At that point you'd probably be freezing in whatever room you have the tank in and I'm assuming you'd have some sort of heating to keep yourself warm and that should be more than sufficient.
