Default space heaters ?

Do energy efficient space heaters works well? I have two hedgies & they both went into hibernation twice due to the fact that I live in an older house & our only heat source is a wood stove. They do have heat lamps by the way.

I use a small dimplex radiator and it works great. Thermostat is accurate and steady and doesn't seem to effect my electric bill too much. There's a small red light on the switch that I cover with gaffer tape so as not to disturb him. Obviously if it's your bedroom then you have an issue with whether you can sleep / exist in 75f! In which case additional CHE heating will be required.
You say you have heat lamps by which I assume you mean Ceramic Heat Emitters. Lamps should not be used as even the red ones are visible and disturb their nightly activity very badly.

The oil filled radiant heaters are very safe and work good to keep a room warm.
