Safety tips

Did you know that space heaters account for more than two out of every five house fires in the U.S. – second only to cooking accidents – according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)?

Although improperly placed or misused freestanding portable heaters are most often to blame for these tragedies (as opposed to professionally installed, wall-mounted space heaters), safety should always be the top consideration when using any type of space heater.

Here are some propane space heater safety tips to keep in mind as you continue to warm your Central Maine home in the weeks and months to come.
