If you deal with the Calgary winter by using a space heater in a chilly room, be sure you practice the utmost caution when it’s running. While they’re convenient and inexpensive to buy, they have an unfortunate downside when it comes to safety.
Besides posing safety risks, many space heaters are energy inefficient, especially electric heaters. If you use a space heater routinely, consider these safer and more energy efficient options.
A space heater is a convenient way to spot heat small spaces for short periods, but prolonged use drives up energy bills and poses a home hazard. If you’d like more information about alternatives, contact Arpi’s Industries, providing HVAC services for Calgary homeowners.
