does anyone know if high temperatures, like around 84-86 constant, produce higher levels of ammonia?
I read somewhere it does, but still unsure
reason I am asking is, if parasites etc are killed at higher temperatures wouldn't it produce ammonia which is truly bad for freshwater aquarium (and marine/saltwater too)
high temp produces ammonia

I'm having the same problem living in Texas. Both of my tanks are running around 82 degrees. I know it's not terribly high but I usually keep both of them around 78. I can't cool them down due to the horrible Texas heat. Where I live, it's supposed to be in the low 100's all week. With that being said, I haven’t had any changes with my tanks (ammonia, ph, etc.) everything is reading fine in my tank.
