Question Temperature excursions

Hello everyone! I'm expecting a new hedgie soon and I have a question about temp excursions outside the cage. I was planning on keeping him in the basement of the house (I know, not the best place but it may be better than upstairs with my roommates who may turn the AC and temp on/off) with me along with the regulated CHE.

About bathing and playtime temp regulations when he is out of the cage though, what is considered a good range? Does the ambient/air temperature still need to be 72-80F when I give him a bath and when I have him outside of the cage to explore the room a little bit? Does it have to be that range too when I have him in my hands in a fleece blanket?

It may be a little challenging to keep that temperature outside of the cage since I live in a place with four seasons and have roommates that prefer the ambient temp a certain way.

Thank you!
