Concerns about Space Heaters
Here are some reasons why our experts feel using a space heater is not your best option:
- Cost – most space heaters use electricity to provide heat, and this is not an inexpensive endeavor. It costs about 30 cents per hour to run a space heater, so you’ll definitely see your electric bill rise while using one.
- You can get burned – many space heaters are not equipped with protective guards and they are usually placed on the floor. This provides ample opportunity for tripping over them or brushing up against them, which can result in being burned.
- Potential for fires – space heaters get quite hot. If any kind of flammable items are close to the heater, or touching it in any way, there is a chance the item could catch on fire.
- Too many people use them with extension cords – space heaters draw a high level of electricity. This means they should always be plugged directly into an outlet, not connected via a power strip or extension cord, as these items may get too hot and melt.
