Space Heater Safety Tips

Picture1A new wave of winter weather is hitting us again, particularly in the Northeast. The freezing temperatures and snow have people hunkering down at home. If you’re worried about staying warm, remember that space heaters are inexpensive, easy ways to add warmth to rooms. Before buying the first one you see online, there are a few space heater safety tips to keep in mind.

Shopping for Safe Space Heaters

Space heater safety begins by choosing the right type of heater for your application. Electric heaters are the only heaters considered safe for use inside non-vented rooms. Fortunately, a wide array of safe space heaters fall within this general category, from convection heaters that circulate warmth around a room to radiant heaters that direct warmth right at you.

To avoid fire hazards, the U.S. Fire Administration recommends purchasing a space heater with a tip-over safety switch too. The agency also advises consumers to make sure that the heater has been evaluated by a third-party organization like Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
