Since leopard geckos are nocturnal and live in deserts - where it gets quite cold at night, especially the air - you probably don't need to worry about your leo getting a respiratory infection *as long as* the heat mat is set to the correct temperature on the floor of the enclosure and you're controlling it with a thermostat.

Are you measuring the floor temperature where your gecko is?
