Pipes are freezing. Houses are burning due to unattended space heaters. People are complaining about drafts. These winter woes can be avoided with by taking simple preventive measures. You know the old addage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
According to energy.gov, more than 25,000 residential fires are attributed to space heaters every year. More than 300 people die every year as a result of those fires. There have already been two house fires in my area in the past couple of weeks as a result of people using space heaters to defrost frozen pipes.
