Buying Tips: Portable Heaters

21 May

Portable heaters are used when central heating works out to be an expensive affair. They can also be used to boost the temperature of rooms. Energysavers.gov has some tips on buying small space heaters.

When buying and installing a small space heater, follow these guidelines:
• Only purchase newer model heaters that have all of the current safety features. Make sure the heater has the Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL) label attached to it.
• Choose thermostatically controlled heaters, since they avoid the energy waste of overheating a room.
• Select a heater of the proper size for the room you wish to heat. Do not purchase oversized heaters. Most heaters come with a general sizing table.
• Locate the heater on a level surface away from foot traffic. Be especially careful to keep children and pets away from the heater.
