Safety is our #1 Priority at 1st Cooling! Below are some tips to keep in mind when operating your electric heater. 

  1. Water and Electricity DON’T MIX! Keep your heater far from any water source and do not touch it if you are wet.

  2. Never try to dry anything with your heater. Even if just for a few minutes, keep soggy or wet clothes far from your heater. 

  3. Don’t leave the heater operating while unattended.

  4. Do place a heater only on a stable, level surface, in a spot where it won’t get kicked, knocked over, or tripped over.

  5. Don’t place a heater closer than 3 feet (0.9 m) from any combustible materials, including papers, boxes, plastic bags or vinyl sheeting/tarps, upholstered furniture, drapes/curtains, etc.

  6. Do make sure the heater cord plug fits tightly into the electrical outlet; avoid using outlets where the plug feels like a loose fit.

  7. Don’t plug the heater into an extension cord or power strip, and discontinue use of the heater if you determine the plug or cord, wall outlet, or faceplate is hot.

  8. Don’t run the heater’s cord under rugs or carpeting, because this can lead to cord damage which can cause a fire.
