Portable Space Heater Safety

When the weather turns cold, it can bring a chill into our homes. Portable space heaters have become a popular way to supplement central heating or heat one room. 

 

 

If you plan to use portable electric space heaters, make sure to follow these tips and recommendations:

Heater Checklist:

  • Purchase a heater with the seal of an independent testing laboratory.
  • Keep the heater at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn, including people.
  • Choose a heater with a thermostat and overheat protection.
  • Place the heater on a solid, flat surface.
  • Make sure your heater has an auto shut-off to turn the heater off if it tips over.
  • Keep space heaters out of the way of foot traffic. Never block an exit.
  • Keep children away from the space heater.
  • Plug the heater directly into the wall outlet. Never use an extension cord.
  • Space heaters should be turned off and unplugged when you leave the room or go to bed.
Types of Electric Space Heaters

Oil or water-filled radiator
Heated oil or water travels through the heater.

Fan-forced heater
A fan blows warm air over metal coils.

Ceramic heater
Air is warmed over a ceramic heating element.

Infrared heaters
Heat is created by infrared bulbs.

Additional Comments or Suggestions

Thank you GVFD again for all you do for the GV community. As a widow I rely on you to change the batteries on my smoke detectors. I also have a lockbox. Your services are truly appreciated. Jeff Jamieson was on time, polite, professional and got the job done. All of the members of the GVFD that have assisted me in the past exhibit the same qualities. I am ever so grateful.
