Electrical Heaters

Heaters are one of the largest users of electricity during winter. Here are some tips for when it comes to these appliances

-    Before you purchase your heater, make sure to look up or ask the manufacturer for instructions regarding servicing and maintenance.

-    Always make sure to keep an eye out on the power cords and plugs, you want to make sure that nothing is starting to fray.

-    A good thing to do is is to remove any heater filters from your appliance and give them a good vacuum so that you can get rid of any dust build-up before use.

-    Please avoid plugging your heater into a power board, double adaptor or extension cord. Preferably plug your unit straight into the wall as this will prevent overlading the adaptor or cause a fire.

-    Never leave your heater unattended, especially in areas of the home that have a lot of people or animal walking in and out.

-    If you are drying wet clothes or anything that is potentially flammable near your heater, please keep these items at least 1m from the heater.
