Alert: Space heaters plugged into power strips pose a major fire risk.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 25,000 home fires a year are traced back to space heaters, and those fires result in roughly 300 fatalities. Many space heaters have specific manufacturer’s instructions, like only plugging them directly into a wall outlet.

NOTE: Make sure your model is up-to-date with the latest safety features and the appropriate size for the room you’re trying to heat. Electric space heaters should always be kept at ground level and far away from any furniture.

When hooked up to a power strip or extension cord, the outlet can overheat, causing it to short-circuit or to potentially catch fire.
