My chameleon is sleeping like 12 to 14 hours a day. Is this normal?

Your lighting as quoted doesn't make much sense.veiled, female, I've had her for 4 months and she is about 7 months old
100w, 150w, 16 uvb and 21 uvb. on during the day, off at night
I don't measure the temp. It is next to a window but there is a space heater close by. It is tall and the basking
lamps are on top. She spends an equal amount of time out of basking lamps as in them
I have a humidifier pointed into the cage and I mist the cage 2-3 times per day
No live plants
It is near a vent (the heat is on right now) but the vent is closed so not a lot of air gets through. It is a semi
high traffic area but I live alone and it's not THAT often that I go into the kitchen. (she is next to the kitchen)
The cage is about 3.5 feet above the carpet and is about 3
I live in Kansas City, Missouri. Cold in winter, hot in summer.
I am asking for help because she sleeps 10-14 hours per day. If I turn on the lights before she is ready to wake up, she will go underneath the waterfall, where it is dark for another hour or so. I'm pretty worried. I had this exact same setup and routine with my last chameleon. He died at age 5 and a half. It was a while back but I don't remember him sleeping this much. He pretty much had the same sleep schedule as me I think.
