For most temperate species, no affect. Of course it is usually easiest to follow the natural course of things. What I mean is, it is easier to achieve the cool temps when the weather changes. Where I live, that is not until November. If you can get 55-60 deg temps in September, so be it.

Generally, you want to avoid temps in the 70s, at least for extended periods. If you can't get temps into the 60s, then better to keep heating. Certain species do not really need a brumation. Cool background temps, even with one side of the cage still heated, will often be enough. Certainly true with cornsnakes, Florida kings and rosyboas in my experience.
