Safe Home Heating

 

 

Because the home heating costs of electricity, gas and fuel oil are expensive many homeowners use short cuts to reduce costs. Be sure they are safe and not a fire hazard.

Many homeowners resort to kerosene heaters. These are highly combustible and are outlawed in some cities.

Using turned on kitchen stovetop burners and open ovens as well as barbecue grills are other unsafe practices.

Small electrical space heaters can do wonders to warm up a room or a small area of a room in order to prevent the need of raising the thermostat on the primary heat source. But keep blankets, clothing, toys and other flammable items away from the heater.
