dude arent you in alaska?? hehe
how long is long?
my fish room gets mad hot sometimes due to all the lighting, usually the temp is 84 throughout the summer
no deaths because of it...the only thing i notice is an increase in algae...diatom and/or slime...once the tank cools down to 80 things get back to normal

do you have central air? or its the air conditioner in the wall/window?

central air you can keep any temp you want, thats fine to leave on during a trip, but the wall/window ones ferget it they cant be left unattended that long
im guessing it will be fine...what about lighting? will you have it on a timer?

I think You are asking for trouble. Basement or not. If the house gets 90 or 100 at all for any lenght of time the tank will also get warm, warmer then the room temp. I think You need to talk your dad into buying a chiller or leaving the air on. If your tank gets to 90 you will be making a seafood soup.

are you sure your house even gets that hot?
usually when all the shades are drawn and its kept dark it stays cooler.
the house shouldnt get any hotter than the temp outside
when are you going away? is it in the forecast?
this week is pretty cool, your in NJ we pretty much get the same weather, im southeast PA
