The leaves are beginning to change, the air is crisp, and trips to the pumpkin patch are just about in full swing. Fall is officially here and wrapping up in a blanket with a warm beverage is a great way to stay warm. Another tactic to stay cozy is using a space heater. Space heaters may be a great source in keeping you warm but they can also be the source of a fire if not properly used.

Get Cozy...Safely 

If you find yourself longing to warm up via space heater, follow these safety tips to ensure that your comfy, relaxing time doesn’t end up being a burning hot disaster!

  • Keep your heater 3 feet away from flammable objects
  • Set the heater on a level surface
  • Never leave it running unattended
  • Always plug your space heater into the wall -- NOT a power strip
  • Look for a safety-approved heater
  • Purchase a space heater with an automatic shut off
  • Make sure your fire alarms are working properly

There you have it! By following these tips, you are able to enjoy that nice warm flow of heat all while keeping yourself safe!
