Default Temperature Swings after Primary Fermentation Completed?

The ignitor in my furnace went out overnight and the house dropped to a cozy 54 degrees. The temp of my primary dropped from 70 to 62. However, the Stout is settling as primary fermentation has been completed for the last 3 days. Is there any reason to be concerned about the one temperature swing?

And, yes, I fixed the ignitor and the house is back to 70.

Same thing happened to me this morning and the house is really cold today.

My major concern is that the cold temperature will ruin brewnight.

Dancing Banana is cold today.

No if it's just settling should be fine, might have even helped clear it up a bit.
