Question Heating question

It has been warm enough where I live to go without a heat setup for now, and although it still is, I ordered one for when the winter comes. I ordered the bulbs, a fixture, a thermometer, and a thermostat, and the first three items arrived today. However, the thermostat got delayed and will not arrive until next week or possibly the week after. It will definitely be a little too chilly for no heat setup by then, so I pretty much only have the option to use my heat lamp without a thermostat to regulate the temperature. I feel like this isn't a huge deal, except that I am in school for 7 hours a day and can't check the temperature during those times. Will the heat get too hot for him? I would rather he be a little toasty than too cold, but I don't want him to risk overheating. The bulbs are 100w che bulbs, and I'm not sure how hot they're going to get in 7 hours of being on the entire time.

TLDR: I need to use my heat setup without the thermostat for a couple weeks. Will my hedgehog get too hot?
