Default Hard Lemonade - Air temp to hot to ferment?

I know making hard lemonade can be rough to get the yeast to startup fermentation due to the high acidity, but can a high air temp play a role? With the current heat wave and no AC in the house my temps range from 79-85 degrees F. I've read that a high temp can cause the yeast to be very aggresive, but is that an issue with a hard starter like lemonade? My other option is in the basement which ranges from 68-70. Should I wait til the fermentation is going strong for a day then place it in the basement?
