OK firstly,where are you measuring the temps from and with what?
You are best using a digital thermometer and placing the probe on the mat itself. Do you have a thermostat running the mat( or bulb) For the mat i would use a pulse but you can use just a mat stat, and for a light emmitting bulb you would need a dimming thermostat. I would honestly go for a ceramic non light emmitting bulb and a pulse stat with a guard over the ceramic bulb as they get seriously hot and put the thermostat and thermometer probes together on the floor directly under the ceramic(or just a bit to one side, but not more than 5 or 6 inches away) Then just adjust the stat to get the temps right(the markings on the stat are not spot on)
