With any of the small space heaters, please pay attention to the recommended minimum distances that you need to keep things away from the coil. Here in eastern IA we have numerous house fires every winter caused by space heaters that got too hot or weren’t properly set up and burned the house down. Sadly, there was a fire a week or so back in Dixon, IL that sounds like it was caused from a space heater that killed 4 kids and both parents because the house didn’t have smoke detectors.

Also make sure you have good ventilation if you are using a propane or kerosene heater as the carbon monoxide fumes are odorless.
