I have wondered the same thing for my cresties. I use night glo bulbs to provide enough light to view the critters at night and also provide a little heat to keep the chill off. I find that the blue bulbs produce more heat than the fluorescent UVB bulb that's in use during the day, so my max temps are often in the evening when both the light and the central heating is on. I've got to say that the geckos don't seem to mind.
