NSEG Space Heater Safety Tips

  • Choose models that have automatic safety switches that turn off the heater if it is tipped over accidentally. 
  • Do not overload circuits. 
  • Never leave the heater unattended and never leave the house or go to bed without turning off the heater.  Always turn off and unplug the heater when it's not being used. 
  • Keep the cord and heater away from high traffic areas. 
  • Never use electric space heaters with an extension cord. 
  • Read and follow all manufacturer's instructions.

I just got IRS to reduce client's tax bill from $393,000 to zero.  She is a Mexican immigrant single mother working at  near minimum wage.  She cried in my office for half an hour when she found out, and brought me a nice gift two weeks later.  I love it when I can help someone like that!!!
