Colder Weather a Reminder of Space Heater Safety

Published On: November 23, 2015

Kansas City winters can get quite cold. Many people use space heaters for warmth. Space heaters are convenient, but must be managed carefully to avoid fires and accidents. Crowley Furniture wants you to be safe this winter and take great care when operating space heaters in your home.

Inspection

When getting out your heater from last winter, be sure to check it first and make sure there is no damage to the cord or plug. Be sure the plug fits securely into the wall outlet, if not, do not use. Never use a power cord or power strip.

Placement

Make sure you place your space heater on a stable and level surface and in a spot where it will not be knocked over. Keep any flammable and combustible materials at least 3 feet away. These include beds, sofas, curtains, papers, clothes and water. Never run the cord under carpeting or rugs. This can damage the cord, which can lead to sparks and fires.

Remember

Do not run your space heater while you sleep and never touch a space heater when you are wet! Keep a close eye on your space heater while running and make sure it doesn’t get too hot.

Adjustable Beds are for Everyone – Not Just Hospitals

There’s a common misconception that adjustable beds are just for hospital patients.  Nothing could be further from the truth. People of all ages and lifestyles can benefit from the features of an adjustable bed.

Making Life Easier

Adjustable beds are perfect for active, modern lifestyles. They provide working professionals a comfortable place to work on their laptop and a comfortable spot to relax after a stressful workday.   An adjustable bed also makes reading, watching TV and lounging easier and much more comfortable for people of all ages.

Improved Health

Adjustable beds not only provide comfort, but they can also provide added health benefits. These include reduced snoring and acid reflux effects, reduced lower back pain, and improved circulation. Heartburn, asthma and arthritis symptoms can also be alleviated. Elevated sleeping positions and the massage feature popular on many models today can help many health issues, provide stress relief and a better night’s sleep.
