As long as they've got lots of blankets to cuddle in when they choose, they'll be fine. I seem to remember reading they can tolerate cold down to about -20 fairly well, if they've got an insulated sleeping box. So the cold inside your home should bee ok.

[Moderator's note:
Please, check that figure. BFFs live underground for most
of the time and that greatly moderates temperatures, just
like having an earth-berm home, or the way a root cellar
in many locations typically will not freeze, so their excursions
from the burrows are helped by returning to their warmer
locations underground. (I am just guessing where the number
may have arisen and my guess could be wrong.) A nest box will
not moderate temperatures anywhere near as well as a good

Minus 20 Celsius is below 0' Fahrenheit.]
