Space Heater Safety

Home fires, deaths and injuries are frequent during the winter months. Heating is the second leading cause of winter home fires and space heaters are often the cause or involved in 40% these fires. Space heaters come in handy during the winter months, especially in my home with a basement and hardwood floors! BRRRR.

Safety is a main concern when using space heaters this winter. Below you will find some space heater safety tips to keep you and your family protected this winter.

  • Make sure your space heater has been tested by a recognized laboratory
  • Read instructions and warning labels before using
  • Inspect all visible wires for damage
  • NEVER leave heater unattended
  • Proper placement of space heaters is critical. They should be 3 ft away from anything.
