Energy-Efficient Space Heaters
Many people find that they can control their home heating costs during cold winter months by using a space heater to warm a room that they frequently use, and allowing the rest of the house to remain a little chillier. Also, a space heater can be placed on the floor near a desk or work area where you remain for a limited time, rather than setting the thermostat to warm that entire room.
There are many types, models, and sizes of space heaters, and they range in price from $20 to $400. Regardless of the one you select, it is important to follow safety instructions, and to be sure it is placed in a clear floor area, away from any combustible materials, and out of the reach of children and pets.
