Portable Space Heater Safety

Portable space heaters are a potential fire hazard if not used correctly! All space heaters must be approved by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) or Factory Mutual laboratories. If you are using a portable space heater remember to never plug the space heater into an extension cord (plug the heater directly into a wall receptacle). Here are some other tips for safe operation of a space heater:

  • Do not place the heater into an enclosed space (such as under a desk).
  • Do not leave a space heater unattended.
  • Keep portable space heaters away from exit ways, walkways and paths of travel.
  • Do not use heaters around water sources (such as kitchens and bathrooms).
  • Do not use the space heater if the portable space heater if children will be playing in the area.
