Modern homeowners are constantly looking for thrifty ways to make their homes more comfortable; especially in the cold winter months like January and February.
Many of these homeowners have learned that space heaters are great tools for efficiently heating up rooms, such as cold bedrooms or living areas. Homeowners can also use space heaters to lower the chances of getting frozen pipes.
However, homeowners have to be careful when using a space heater. If it isn’t used properly, the homeowner can potentially cause damage to the heater, their home, or themselves.
All homeowners should keep these useful tips in mind when using their space heaters:
1. Keep the Heater Away From Children and Pets
As one would assume, space heaters can get really hot! This means that homeowners need to keep their children and any pets away from the space heater. Curious children or pets could potentially burn themselves if they touch the heater while it is running.
2. Avoid Placing the Heater on Countertops
Some space heaters are designed to be placed on delicate surfaces like countertops. However, most space heaters can seriously damage a countertop. This is because of the large amount of heat that they produce so quickly.
Always place your heater in a safe place where it’s out of the way and on a surface that it won’t damage at all.
3. Be Careful With the Cords
While running a space heater, homeowners need to be careful around the cords. The homeowner should avoid putting too much tension on the cords, as this can damage the heater or even cause it to tip over.
It is also wise for the homeowner to run the cords over the carpet. Finally, the homeowners should never plug their space heater into an extension cord, as this could potentially become a fire hazard.
4. Thoroughly Read the Instruction Manual
After a homeowner purchases a space heater, it is crucial that they read the instruction manual. Regardless of how long it is, the homeowner should read the manual from front to back.
By doing this, the homeowner will know how to use their space heater properly and efficiently.
If you have questions, comments, or concerns about how to use a space heater safely, don’t hesitate to get in contact with the space heater superstars at Twin Tech Heating.
When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.
Mitch from Twintech came out for our annual furnace inspection. We found him to be friendly, conscientious & he left the work area clean. We were also very impressed with the thoroughness of the job he did. This is the 2nd job weve had Twintech do for us & have been very happy with the results for each. We highly recommend this company. Thank you, Mitch, Dave & Greg.
Work was done on schedule, professionally, according to quote and with minimal inconvenience to building users. Very happy with the end result. The only area for improvement from my experience - need more timely quoting process.
The team was great! Very knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful. A few days after install the unit didnt seem to be working, user error, but within minutes of contacting them..on a Saturday.. a tech was on the phone troubleshooting with us. I highly recommend Twintech for your cooling or heating needs. They stand by their products and a pleasure to deal with.
During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.
They were on time and very professional. I'm so glad I decided to go with Twintech, thanks!
Timely and appreciated - this was during the hottest days this year when our Air and Furnace way.
Efficient. Professional. No BS or overselling. What was promised, was delivered at a cost-effective price point.
Down to earth.
Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.
Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.
Great team of guys came to do the work. Very professional. Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean. They answered any questions we had without hesitation. The air conditioner works great and is so quiet. I highly recommend them and they don't try to up-sell anything right from the start.
