KEYS’ PORTABLE SPACE HEATER SAFETY TIPS

12/07/2017 ~ With temperatures forecast to dip in the Florida Keys over the weekend, portable space heaters can warm a cold and drafty house. Keys Energy Services recommends following these safety principles with portable space heaters:

- Plug portable space heaters directly into an outlet; do not use an extension cord.

- Make certain the circuit you plug a space heater into can adequately and safely handle the added demand.

- Never remove the grounding feature on a plug by clipping or grinding off the third prong.

- Use an adaptor to connect the heater’s three-prong plug, if you do not have a three-hole outlet. Make sure the adaptor ground wire or tab is attached to the outlet ground.

- Keep heaters away from passageways and keep all flammable materials such as curtains, rugs, furniture and/or newspapers at least three feet away.

- Unplug and safely store portable space heaters when not in use.
