Protect your home from heating fires
It is important to follow safety guidelines to help prevent blazes from igniting, possibly causing damage or death.
The NFPA offers the following guidelines when attempting to warm a home:
• When buying a new space heater, make sure it carries the mark of an independent testing laboratory and is legal for use in your community.
• Install your stationary (fixed) space heater according to manufacturer’s instructions or applicable codes or better yet, have it installed by a professional.
