Home Heating Safety

Heating equipment, especially portable and space heaters, require careful use and proper maintenance.
The following tips can help prevent fire and burn-related injuries during the winter months.

Portable Space Heaters

• Make sure your heater has been tested for safety. Look on the bottom for a label such as ETL, UL or CSA.

• Place space heaters at least three feet away from anything that can burn - including furniture, people, pets and curtains. 

• There should always be an adult in the room when a space heater is on. 

• Turn off space heaters before leaving a room or going to sleep. 

• Supervise children and pets at-all-times when a portable space heater is in use. 

• Never use space heaters to dry clothing or blankets.
