Don’t be a Scrooge! Make sure you do your research before purchase a space heater. Look for a space heater that has been nationally licensed and tested in a laboratory.
Don’t be a Know-it-All! Please examine then follow all instructions before plugging your space heater into the wall. Also, make sure that family members understand how to control the space heater cautiously.
Don’t be Absented Minded! Always turn your space heater off before you go to bed or if you depart the heating vicinity.
Know your Measurements! Place your space heater three feet away from combustible objects, for example: bedding, furniture, and grandma’s drapes.
It’s all about the Area! You should place your space heater on durable, non-flammable surface levels. Of course, this doesn’t mean placing your space heater on smooth rugs or carpets.
Working Conditions! If you detect your space heater isn’t functioning properly or you smell a peculiar aroma, have a certified repairperson check and fix your space heater before using again.
Have Detectors! Make sure your residence is equipped with a working smoke and carbon monoxide detector always! Moreover, have an ABC-type fire extinguisher (that works!) in your residence permanently.
Have a Plan! Sit down with your love ones and develop a fire escape plan before a fire happens. Rehearse your escape plan frequently.
