Vinyl sheeting or lino over heat mat?


Can vinyl sheet or lino be used over in-floor heat (low voltage electric mats) without any problems? Don't want to burn the house down!! If so, what would be the procedure after laying out the heat mat, to get a smooth surface?

It wouldn't burn your house down, but might keep the glue at a nice toasty temp. I think they make special heated flooring elements for linoleum, though.
