Default Fridge temp changes

Will a 13 degree swing everyday for 4 days affect my final product? Should I try and adjust my carb pressure, currently at 10 psi?

I Got a new fridge in the garage. Turned it to the highest temp setting and threw a keg in. I put a thermometer in and checked the temp before and after work. It seems to swing between 25 and 38. It just dawned on me today that the ambient temp has been swinging between 20 and 45 in my area. I pulled the fridge inside which I am thinking will stabilize the temp. Like I asked above I'm just curious how a temp swing that big might change my carb level.

Your keg might take a day or two longer to carbonate but I do not think you will have any problems. If you want a more stable temp then I recommend getting a temperature controller.
