When temperatures dip for extended periods, sometimes you need a little extra help keeping warm. Maybe an addition or sunroom in your home isn’t heated well by your main heating system. Maybe your home is older and drafty or not well-insulated. Or maybe you’re spending time working in a poorly heated space.
If any of these instances hold true, you likely use a portable space heater to keep the chill under control. It’s actually a great choice! Indoor propane heaters can be much more efficient at heating spaces quickly compared to other options, such as electric space heaters. But make sure you are using your supplemental heating device safely. Used incorrectly, there can be some significant risk.
In general, look for units with an automatic shut-off feature that turns the unit off if it begins to overheat or if it tips over or is on an uneven surface.
Here’s how to make sure you’re as safe as well as comfortable.
