 New ball python owner

Hello! I recently got a ball python.
I’ve researched ALOT and have just one question.
I’ve decided to not go with a UTH- one, because where I got him from they said it was not necessary. And two- I feel they are not safe and can easily start a fire- even with a thermostat on them.
I have a 60watt daytime bulb in right now and the warm side is between 82-86. I also asked the guy I got him from if it was necessary to leave it on at night and he said no as long as the temp doesn’t drop below 70.
Well our house is set between 68-70. Will the snake be ok at night with temps that low? Or should he have a nighttime bulb on?
Thank You.
