Never leave heaters unattended, especially when children are present. Be careful where you position your heater as there needs to be at least 1 metre of clearance from curtains, furniture and even people. Don't use your heater to warm or dry clothes and keep your clothes rack at least 1 metre from your heater. All homes should have smoke alarms installed. To reduce the risk of heaters being knocked over, do not put them in places that see a lot of movement. Always follow the specific instructions in the user manual.

Want to save money?
A timer that switches the heater on or off automatically will save you money as leaving heaters on for too long can just be a waste. If your heater doesn't have a timer, then separate timers can be utilised.

Set the thermostat for healthy indoor temperatures - aim for 18°C to 20°C, and 16°C in bedrooms overnight. Keep the heat in – shut all doors and windows!
