Portable Heater Safety

  • Make sure your space heaters have an emergency shut off in case they tip over. Only use the fuel recommended by the manufacturer. Never refill a space heater while it is operating or still hot. Refuel outside, away from the house.
  • Space heaters need space! Keep combustibles at least three feet away from each heater.
  • Carefully follow manufacture's installation and maintenance instructions.
  • Do not use the oven to heat your home. It is a fire hazard, and it can be a source of toxic fumes.
