For breeding, I'd say a heater is a must. Having the proper equipment is a must before spawning.

For proper growth proper heating is a must. Fry just won't grow well at 76 degrees... Much less 70.

Ok, the temperature in the room I have the bettas in and for breeding is 72 degrees. I do have a basement with a fire place that we use to heat the house that stays upwards of 75 at all times.
Oh, yeah check out this link for my other weird ex: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread....162#post583162

So you are going to have the fireplace on all day and night?

Okay well unless you can maintain the fire so the room stays at a constant temperature, get a heater. Also, the water is a few degrees colder than room temp.

That is too cold. Bettas need water at about 78-82. For spawning they need it in the high 80s.
