Temps sound right?

I have a one year, one month old beardie, so I’m using “adult temps” for reference.
He’s been way too cold and I’m trying to fix it for him. :( I messed up. :banghead:

Does this sound right?
Basking spot: 100 to 105 degrees
Ambient/warm side 80 to 86 degrees
Gradient down to the cool side, 75 degrees.
I’d use a 150 watt repti sun basking bulb, (24 inch tall cage, basking spot is lower).
Also, instead of using a ceramic lamp, is there a heating lamp that also provides light that ISNT a basking bulb? If not, I’d use a ceramic, but I want it to be nice and bright and warm. (I’ve always used zoo med, I’ve never had any issues with them).
Thanks

I would up basking temps to 105-110
You want warm 90"s
cool 80's
A regular house hold bulb for light is good LED they put off no heat or a regular old style bulb like a 60 watt will put off some but not much

Can you put an LED household light in one of the standard reptile clamp lamps?
