If you add an extra layer of warmth to a room by using a space heater, here are a few reminders:

  • Space heaters aren’t necessarily dangerous. It’s the way we use them that’s the problem. 
  • Keep anything combustible at least three feet from space heaters. 
  • Plug them directly into the wall, not an extension cord. 
  • Turn off and unplug space heaters before you go to bed or leave the room. 
  • Don’t throw items like mittens, hats or scarves on a space heater to dry them.
