Those were nightime temps I mentioned. Daytime temps should not drop below 80's for the most part. I would exchange the CHE for a Mercury Vapor and use plastic sheets around the side to hold the heat in. The Mercury Vapor will provide UV if the sunlight cannot get through, as well as heat. The ig simply cannot thrive in cool temps. If you still cannot find anything satisfactory, try Googling "outdoor iguana enclosures" and see what other owners are doing. Just make sure the plans have common sense, and aren't from people in the Keys that have 80 degree weather year round!
