Stay Warm and Safe with Space Heaters

To ensure that your family stays safe while keeping warm, follow these simple tips:

  • When purchasing a new space heater, choose one that is certified by a national testing laboratory.
  • Place the heater on a level, hard, nonflammable surface, never on a rug.
  • Keep small children away from space heaters.
  • Make sure space heaters are at least three feet away from bedding and drapes.
  • Avoid running the power cord under rugs. Placing items on top of the cord could cause the cord to overheat and cause a fire.
  • Do not use an extension cord unless it is absolutely necessary.
  • Never leave a space heater unattended. Make sure to turn it off before you go to sleep or leave the room.
