Space Heater Safety
When the weather begins to cool down, the use of things like space heaters will continue to increase. If used improperly, they can cause some serious damage. Luckily, there are a few ways to try and avoid this!
When using a space heater that burns fuel, like a kerosene heater, always use the manufacturer's specified fuel.
Another important idea to remember is to always turn of portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed. If not, an unsupervised space heater can cause an unpleasant surprise.
The last tip to remember is to plug the space heaters directly into outlets, never into an extension cord or power strip.
