Not so great an idea. You might be seeing the northern lights from your bed, but your room will be radiating all its heat out through that big glass roof.

It's the same physical principle behind why your car can have frost on it in the morning even if the air temperature never gets below freezing over night. Your car is radiating heat into everything including and especially the very cold air in the upper atmosphere above it.
