Use space heaters safely

Use space heaters safely

  • Do – Plug your space heater directly into the wall outlet.
  • Do – Keep your space heater at a safe distance (at least 3 feet) from kids, pets and flammable items.
  • Do – Buy a unit with an automatic shutoff in case the unit tips over, or you forget to shut it off.
  • Don’t – Use an extension cord to plug in your space heater. It can cause the heater to overheat, and can be a tripping hazard.
  • Don’t – Place your space heater near curtains, clothing, furniture or bedding.
  • Don’t – Leave your space heater unattended. Always unplug it before you leave the house or go to bed.
