Use space heaters cautiously
Information courtesy of Kansas Farm Bureau’s Safety and Ag Ed Division
A space heater may cozy up the corner of a room, but shouldn’t be viewed as a primary or long-term heat source.
Space heaters should be UL listed and have “tip switch” shutoff safety features. They also should be positioned and used according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
A cheaper alternative for keeping warm and staying safe is to add a sweater, heavier pair of socks or a blanket.
