If he has a 'nice thick coat' & especially if he sweats when unrugged, why are you rugging him, let alone with a heavy one?? Not meaning to be terse, just don't get why you would. I suspect it's from stress &/or feed/nutrition probs that causes him to sweat when cooped up(they also don't digest food so easily when restricted & if he's prone to mudfever, fair chance that's also diet/nutritional). If it is just about temperature, he will be sweating under a rug too but it's probably absorbing it so it's not obvious to you.

I've never heard of a stable being colder than outside. My barn is not heated but it's a heck of a lot warmer than outside, so much so that any blankets on for turnout are taken off at night.
Your horse can't take his coat off.
