Looking for other ways to heat your home this winter? Space heaters offer an easy way to get additional heat in your house. Whether you purchase an infrared or convection heater, do your research. Although these heaters are convenient, they pose safety hazards. Here are the pros and cons of using space heaters.

Easy to Use

Space heaters are popular because you don’t have to be an expert HVAC technician to use them. To start your space heater, just plug it into a wall. Although using a space heater requires little preparation, you should read the instructional manual. It will provide you with important safety information about your space heater.

Can Only Be Used in Small Spaces

Space heaters offer a limited range of heat. Therefore, it can be challenging to heat large rooms with a space heater. The primary purpose of space heaters is to provide warmth to small areas. They’re ideal for offices and small bedrooms.

Buy and Use the Same Day

Since there aren’t any installation requirements for space heaters, you don’t have to wait to use them. This feature makes a space heater a good temporary option if your heating system breaks down.

Overheating and Fires

Space heaters must never be left unattended. They heat up quickly. As a result, it’s not uncommon for space heaters to overheat and catch fire. If you have children, keep them away from the space heater at all times.

You can save money by using a space heater instead of increasing the temperature on your thermostat. However, your savings will decrease if you use multiple space heaters. When it comes to heating your home, a space heater can’t replace an energy-saving heating system.
