The alternative would be trying to keep the temperature up for an hour or so. Not having a heated, controlled water bath, i'd rather not.
It would appear that 14 C is not a problem, perhaps even a boon. So i'll go with that.
I will warm up the fixer though. Shouldn't be a problem, since that doesn't need to be kept at temperature for that long.
