Nest Thermostat, temp fluctuations and wine storage

I have a Nest Thermostat at home, and it does a great job helping cut energy usage, but it also means the temperature in our house in Atlanta fluctuates from 70-75F everyday (and in some cases as much as 70-77F in one day)

How much of a negative impact could these daily temperature fluctuations cause on the wine?

More details: I store about 60 bottles in our living room on wine racks at "ambient room temp": 2/3 red and 1/3 white wine, most between 2008-2015 vintages, most are consumed within 3-12 mo from purchase and most are in the $20-40/btl price range.

All older/more expensive bottles stored in a wine fridge (I am not worried about these)
