Is my gecko's lethargic behaviour due to a heating issue or something else?

5 year-old leopard-gecko, I don't think her enclosure is warm enough. It usually reads between 80-85°F and my place is normally around 72°F. I use both a heat pad 24/7 and a heat lamp 12 hours a day.

I'm not sure if she is okay with this 80-85°F heat so I want her enclosure to be at least 90°F.

I read online sometimes leopard-geckos are less active if it’s not warm enough in their enclosure and she sleeps a lot. I'm not sure if this is heat related or just because she’s still shy and not used to me.
