If you have AC in the house, then you will be fine. A good T5 light is probably not going to produce enough heat to bring your tank up too much. If you don't have AC, i might be concerned about the temperature of the place you live in getting to it though. I know I live in Minnesota, a place that is not normally know for high temps, but we get 90+ in the summer. If I didn't have AC, i would probably consider a chiller for the summer.
