Rosys are usually kept on some kind of belly heat under 1/3 or 1/4 of the tank. They absorb the heat better this way. you can use a light/heat lamp to raise the overall cage temps up into the low 80's but you want the belly heat area to measure about 92 degrees. I keep all my rosys on heat rope under 1/3 of their tank and my room right now drops at night to about 70's but the hot spot stays warm. During summer/warmer times my room gets to about 80 during the day and upper 70's at night, still I keep the HOT SPOT set to 92 degrees. I gave some baby rosys to a friend last year and he has had some regurge issues. I aksed him HOW he was heating the cage, how he was measuring the cage, (he was using the same setup as you). Once he got a under tank heater for the hot spot the regurging went away. you do NOT want to use a Heat Rock inside the cage though as it WILL burn their bellies. I also use 2 digital thermometers, one to measure the Hot Spot and the other to let me know the cool side of the cages temp. I have the heat rope connected to a thermostat that shuts down/keeps the hot spot right on 92 degrees. I ONLY use a light on a timer to simulate Night and Daylight to match the time of season (Which is shut off completely during brumation (Nov. 25-Feb. 14th)along with the heat). I only give them water once a week 2 days before I plan on feeding them. Always wait at least 3 days to give them water after feeding them or they may regurge. If you have any further questions you can shoot me an email also and/or post more info here and I am sure many of the knowledgable rosy keepers/breeders here can help.
