KFB Safety Stop


Use space heaters cautiously

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.
