Sufficient uvb

Hello and thank you in advance for your help.

I have a 2 year old beardie named Bell. I have been using the arcadia 14% dragon 34" uvb bulb for the past few months. I realize that most most people advise putting the uvb inside the enclosure (which in this case is Dubia.com 4x2x2 pvc) and I understand why. Given that this would be to close to him while inside the enclosure I have had it resting on the screen. I haven't noticed and side effects of uvb insufficiency.

What are your thoughts on this? I know screens filter out a lot of uvb but I'm hoping that a 14% bulb will power through this as they are recommended to be kept at a greater distance anyway. Pics for reference and critic.

If he can get within 12 to 15 inches of it you should be fine

It's a good option for that as long as It's a good quality bulb. It will let you keep things a little simpler for outside the habitat time.

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
