Can you provide a little more detail, on the setup. If I understand correctly, you can say “Alexa what is the lounge temp?” and your alexa will play this TTS message “the temperature is xx.x degress”.
What are you using to trigger the script? Are you just exposing the script to Alexa? I do remember that you can expose automations and scripts as “Alexa Devices”.
Here is what I think I understand. The script “lounge_temp” is exposed to alexa as a “device”, and saying “alexa what is the lounge temp” is understood the same as “turning on” the script?"
