Our program, entitled Safety Matters™, is constantly evolving to ensure that our products are made with the most innovative, tried and tested safety features.
In fact, we incorporate into each of our products safety features that meet and exceed industry standards. Safety features used vary between models based on the design and intended usage of the heater.
SOME OF THE SAFETY FEATURES BUILT INTO OUR HEATERS:
Cool Touch Plastic Housings
Thermal Insulated Wiring
Reinforced Wire Connections
Crimped and Soldered Plug Blades
Did you know that portable heaters can be as safe to use as your iron or hair dryer if used properly? It is knowing how to use them safely that makes all the difference.
TOP 5 TIPS FOR USING HEATERS SAFELY:
Read the manufacturer’s instructions and warning labels before using any portable electric heater.
DO NOT leave operating heater unattended and always unplug heater when not in use.
DO NOT use your heater with a power strip or extension cord. Overheating of a power strip or extension cord could result in a fire.
String out cords on top of area rugs or carpeting. Placing anything, including furniture, on top of the cord may damage it.
Keep combustible materials, such as furniture, pillows, bedding, papers, clothes and curtains at least three feet from the front of the heater and away from the sides and rear. DO NOT block heater’s air intake or exhaust source.
