 New Tank Help?

I am having an issue with heating my cage. I have a Exo Terra 18x18x24 glass enclosure with the Exo Terra Compact hood that came with it, and a repti sun 5.0 in it. The ambient room temp is between 68-70 def F during the day and the tank is about the same, and at night the room temp goes down to 62-66 and the tank is about the same. Is it ok for me to use a 50watt infrared bulb to heat the tank during the day and night and get it to the temps in the mid 70’s? I keep reading that the heat from the bulb could kill the garg, but isn’t a cage temp from the low 60’s to 70 deg too low?
