I would think the solution would be easy. Take whatever is cheaper to run. The light, you can put a blanket or towel around the carboy to keep the light out. Exposure to sunlight at least leads to cardboard off flavors. Even in a sour that's an undesireable flavor. So my thought is the space heater is gonna be a bit much for a small space. Go with the lights. Cover the carboy.
