I have been using our space heating plan for years.
It is a great addition to our study room, which often becomes cold! With the space oil furnace, I never have to worry about freezing weather.
However, I think since I have owned our section oil furnace for so long, I have become relaxed about the safety of it. When I first bought our portable heating unit, I was really careful. I heard of the horror stories, and so I made sure to read up on the guidelines and the dos and don’ts of this certain kind of HVAC, because I paid such close attention to the safety guidelines, I never had an issue, that is until now. I knew one of the things you were never supposed to do is leave the heating component on while you’re away, nor are you supposed to plug it into a power cord. Well, I only planned on being gone for 15 hours, so I figured leaving the space heating component on for that stage of time was no big deal. I also had it jammed into an extension cord, because I was having trouble fitting some other electronics that I had recently bought. That 15 hour absence almost proved to be fatal. When I came back, the extension cord was smoking! I unjammed it, almost burning myself in the process, and now our previously white cord was a dark brown. Had I been gone any longer, and our beach house would have been on fire. I still recommend section oil gas furnaces to anyone, but, regularly make sure to be careful around them.
