Space Heater Safety Tips
As the temperatures begin to drop during this time of year, space heaters are coming out. To make the atmosphere a more comfortable temperature, space heaters are easy to use a product that can quickly generate a warm space on a colder day. But keep in mind, although space heaters are a common way to supplement heat, they can also cause quite a bit of danger. Fire departments urge everyone to avoid plugging a space heater into a power strip. Power strips are not designed to handle the high current flow needed for a space heater and can overheat or worst, catch fire due to the added energy flow.
