How to protect nanos from summer heatwave

My 1 gallon nano have been heating up these past couple of days. With temperatures reaching past 30F, my once beautiful mosses are starting to look like crap. (although I have been over dosin with excel, the heat is making it much worst)I decided to turn off the lights until the heat wave passes. I read that some people used fans; does that really make a difference?

Yes fans help, set on up so it blows across the top of the water, aid in evaporation and helps cool the water

You need to water the tanks basically, make sure there's a good level always, if you wait 2-3 days, the water will drop a great deal.

You need to top the tanks off daily pretty much.
This allows the surface water to move and cool the tank better.
