|Last year I used a regular heating pad, with an inverted mesh flat above it to hold up the flat of seeds away from the mat. I monitored the heat, and the soil stayed around 71 degrees for me. No thermastat. I've read lots of people saying that its foolish to do it that way because of fire hazard and potentially frying your seeds, but it worked for me, and I'll be doing it again since I have several mats laying around.
(Edited to say... Okay, so not 'lots of people.' Just a comment or two on seed starting forums.)
