Is a space heater a fire hazard?

If your windows and doors are old and leaky you may look to space heaters for more comfort in you home during winter.  Space heaters are a nice way to heat up specific parts of your home.  But are they dangerous? 


If you intend to use portable electric space heaters, make sure to observe these tips and recommendations:


• Purchase a heater with the seal of a qualified testing laboratory.
• Keep the heater at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn.
• Choose a heater with a thermostat and overheat protection.
• Place the heater on a stable, level surface.
• Make sure your heater has an auto shut-off to turn the heater off if it tips over.
• Keep space heaters out of the way of foot traffic. Never obstruct an exit.
• Keep kids away from the space heater.
• Plug the heater directly into the wall socket. Never use an extension cord.
• Space heaters should be switched off and unplugged when you vacate the room or go to bed.


Stay safe this winter with our portable heater safety tips. From space heater technology to standard usage tips, Sylvane's got you covered with advice and tips on using space heaters safely this winter season.

Keeping cool with Energy Efficient Windows

Keeping cool with Energy Efficient Windows | Marvin Window Blog | Scoop.it

Windows are more than Just an Inclusion to Your Home’s Architectural Design

The Scoops insight:

Tired of the heat already?  Your window plays a huge role in the volume of heat that gains entry into your home, or that is lost, at any point in time. This is why it is important that you are aware of the enormous consequences of having poor quality windows installed in your home. Not only do they serve as a major source of unwanted heat gain (in the summer months) or heat loss (in the winter months), they also require you to spend extra (unbudgeted money, sometimes) to have the Air Conditioning system running overtime, to keep your home temperature cool.

As a matter of fact, with our Infinity from Marvin Replacement window, there is technology that makes it possible for you to have super energy-efficient windows with low-E coatings, thus helping to reduce the typical solar heat gain, without compromising the design, view or the amount of daylight that comes in.
