Smile Heating for Columbian bci boa

Hello, Iím new to the snake keeping community and excited to have joined it. Iíve recently purchased a 10 week old Columbian bci boa and need advice on heating the tank. The tank is heated by an UTH with a thermostat , a small ceramic heat bulb , and a zoo med dual bulb fixture with two 40 watt bulbs. The thermostat is set for 98 degrees as I had to take into account losing some heat through the coconut husk substrate. The ceramic bulb keeps an elevated basking spot at about 85 degrees, and the zoo med fixture on the other end keeps the cool side between 78-82 degrees. The humid hide is kept on the warm side and thatís where the snake feels most comfortable during the day so I just wanted to know if keeping the thermostat that temperature was safe for the snake. I live in buffalo ny so temps this time of year are constantly below freezing and often in the single digits with windchill. The temperature probe for the thermostat is kept under the substrate to better regulate the temp so itís a few degrees cooler on top of the substrate than what the thermostat says Iím open to all advice and opinions , thank you
