Hydor mini submersible heater?

I'm thinking about getting them for my bettas. They seem like the best option but from what I've read, there's no set temperature so does that mean the water just keeps getting hotter? Currently, my room temp. is 67 degrees. My bettas seem "fine" but I know they need to be warmer. Plus, when I put in the air conditioner in May or June the room will probably be around 60 degrees :o Would the mini heater be good for a tank in a room of that temperature?

I think they either are set to a certain temperature, or they raise the ambient room temperature by a few degrees.

Well it says about 5-10 degrees. So if the room temperature is about 64 or 65, the water would only go to 75? I just don't want it heating the water to the point of killing my fish :p

Even 75 is too cold. I would really get an adjustable heater. This one is just not going to cut it in such a cold house.
