What's the issue here? Why do you want to raise your temp?

A stable ph is better than a shifting ph. Fish will adapt to your ph so no need to change it. I wouldn't have the temp higher then 80 but,
what's your goal in doing this?

To treat ich I would slowly over 6-8 hours raise the temp to 86 and add 1 tbsp of aquarium salt per 5g of water

I don't think that salt has any direct effect on ich but is is good for the fishes
Gills and fins.will non- iodized salt work?

Please take a look at this. Yes you can use heat alone but salt will ease the process.

OP, don't forget to increase surface agitation because the heat will deplete oxygen faster
