How To Use A Space Heater Without Lighting Things On Fire

When the temperature drops and the nights get cold, space heaters often step in to warm things up. In this episode, we talk about the important things you need to know about safe space heater use. We’ll go over why they can be dangerous, basic safety, and how to spot a problem.

Space heaters do a great job at warming up targeted areas. To do that, though, they need a lot of power. Many space heaters use more power than microwaves! Pulling that much power can risk overheating your wiring and causing a fire. And that’s on top of the fire risk of the space heater itself.

But if you’re careful, a space heater shouldn’t cause you any trouble. Keep things that can melt or burn away from them, and don’t hang clothes on them to dry. Make sure they have enough space to breathe. And try to avoid plugging them into the same circuit as other appliances.

We go over how to see if you’re space heater is causing you problems in the video. If you notice any of those warning signs, it’s a good idea to call an electrician. They should be able to understand what’s going on and help you fix the problem. If you live in Utah, Any Hour Services would be happy to help.
