Usually room temps don't get cold enough to use a heat mat, but on the coldest of days I would place the mat on the side of the viv rather than the bottom.

I usually have the stat probe at the center back of my viv and approx 1 inch off the ground. Recommend buying the temp gun so you can keep an eye on the temps in the basking spot and adjust the position (or setting on the stat) of the probe, where further from the basking spot for hotter temps and closer for cooler basking temps.
