However, my husband and I really liked to have the space heater turned on while we were sleeping to keep our room warm.
My husband and I recently decided that we wanted to buy a couple of space heaters to keep around the house for when the weather outside gets really cold. We have a great heating system and don’t really need the space heaters, but we think they would be a great addition to our current heating system and really help to warm up the house. So, once our new space heaters arrived, I opened up the box and immediately plugged them in. I didn’t even read the instructions and warning labels inside the box because I figured that I already knew how to use a space heater and didn’t need any help. Well, I could not have been more wrong and I should have listened to the warning labels that came in the box. The warning said that you should not leave the space heaters on unsupervised, meaning that you should not sleep with them on or have them turned on while you aren’t home. However, my husband and I really liked to have the space heater turned on while we were sleeping to keep our room warm. So, I woke up in the middle of the night and smelled something burning. I walked over to the space heater and saw that one of our blankets fell on top of it and almost caused a fire. If I would have not woke up in the middle of the night our whole house could have been up in flames.
