I used a regular heating pad for several years before I got a Seed heat mat.
I put a thin rag over the heating pad cover, then the seed sprouting containers.
I was always careful when watering and I have my lights and the heating pad on a timer ... 16 hours on.
I only used it on the low setting.
Never had a problem and the seeds did sprout faster.

Finally I was part of co-op and got a seed mat for a good price and use it every year.
I notice the biggest difference in the tomato seeds and the pepper seeds, they are sooooo much faster with the bottom heat!
