If i need colder I've been wrapping it in wet t shirts with a fan blowing on it and windows open, if I ever need hotter I could move it to the other side of the room by the heat pipe. or wrap in a blanket.
I did a lot of test readings of temps before i started brewing in this place as I figured fermentation temps would be difficult. But it seems as long as I brew beers that like 66+ before the weather gets to hot I'm good.
In the summer i'll stick an AC in the kitchen window.
