I live in Redding and my house is cooled by a swamp cooler.

In the summer, when ambient temp is gets to 82F in the middle of the day, I don't use any additional heat for my snakes - and they do just fine. Spring and Fall when indoor temps are more to my liking (low 70s) I do provide additional heat.

I will be building new cages for all my snakes this winter (as part of my woodshop class at the JC) - and then, I will use flexwatt and an expensive thermostat, and just let it determine wether it should be on or off - but if your indoor temps are like mine, no thermostat probably means too warm in the daytime with additional heat.
