As energy bills are predicted to rise even more, you may be worried about how will you heat your home during the winter.
One way to heat your room or office is by using portable heaters; they are a convenient alternative to central heating, especially when you need heat in one or two rooms.
Why not heat up only the space you use and live in, instead of heating up the whole house? Here's where portable heaters come in.
They are very popular and quite handy when the chilly months of the year are upon us. However, it is best to use the portable heaters safely, as outlined both by Dimplex here and by Electrical Safety First here.
You may have seen or used a portable heater at home or in your office to warm up the room or the space you are in. There are three main types of portable heaters in the UK:
Many of the fires caused by portable heaters are because of some basic mistakes which, once identified, eliminate the risk of fire.
For example, if a heater is placed in a place where people walk by, it is easy to be knocked down and start a fire.
Or if you hang the laundry above or near the portable heater, it can be easy for it to catch fire.
Furthermore, when portable heaters are too close to little children or elderly ones, it is easy for them to get burned.
To be extra safe, it is recommended to register the new portable heater you have purchased. And to be even safer, you can check the Product Recall Checker to see whether the portable heater or any other electrical items have been recalled.
