    What type of bulb would you use in your lamp? I think a normal bulb could suffice for a bit provided temperatures of the basking site are not too hot. But you could get away without a heat source for 5 days, I am pretty sure it would be fine.
    Ok but for the temperature, that's why I would use a heat bulb for the temps so they don't get too low

    But they could get too hot as it isn't controlled by anything, he would do fine at room temperature for a few days as well. However you can try the heat lamp, place your thermometer probe on the surface he can lay on, if it exceeds 93F remove it.

    IF you try this suggestion, be right there to monitor the thermometer.

    Do not leave until the temperature stops rising.

    What are your room temperatures these days? Have you room temperatures in the mid 80s?
