Herpstat 2 and questions

Here are the details…
40 gallon glass EXO terra tank. Tops are all foiled to keep heat and humidity regulated.

Using small watt UV light for Vit d, CHE and heat mat.

Cool: 78/60%
Hot: 85/60%
Hot side substrate with what gun 88-90.

She’s (ball python) happy, healthy, 4 months old, super nice and eats well.

I have the CHe and heat mat on their own Wi-Fi InkBird thermostats. I keep CHE at 85 during day and 80 at night. Heat pad 95 during day (sits outside tanks with 3in substrate above it inside) and 90 at night. All works like a charm.

But, people are saying Halogen is the way to go. It contains IR A and B waves that CHe doesn’t, in which CHE is all IR C. The A and B are better for the snakes.

Am I over thinking this, splitting hair etc and over complicating this?

Do I just keep current set up, or Switch to halogen during day and CHe at night?

And if I do switch, I have a Herpstat 2 which I am finding really hard to set up where the halogen would be on during day, shut off at 8pm and then CHE would kick on from 8pm to 8am, then switch back to halogen. Any tips?

Thanks. Harri.
