|Reptile warming mats would probably be safe to use, and you could test it out with a thermometer to see how much it raised the temperature (above ambient) to make sure your seeds wouldn't cook. You don't want to get much over 90 degrees F... so if you have a heat mat that could add as much as 20 degrees, either don't use it in an area that will get over 70, or reduce the heat by putting something (like an inverted mesh flat holder) between the mat and the seeds.
Since my basement does get over 70 on sunny days, I went with a thermostat... but using a timer to turn off the heat mat during the afternoons would have worked also.
