I don’t understand why people like space heaters
I don’t know.
I really don’t get why some people like using space heaters during the winter to heat their homes. I really hate space heaters. I don’t think that they should be used as heating systems, but for some reason, a lot of people really seem to like them. I know that a lot of elderly people tend to use space heaters in their homes as a source of extra heat during the winter, but I personally don’t feel like that’s really very safe. I think that with space heaters, you just have to be too careful about where you’re placing them. If you put them too near the furniture or the curtains, they could definitely be a fire hazard. I guess maybe I have just heard too many stories over the years about people accidentally starting fires in their homes because they were using space heaters instead of just turning up the thermostat and letting their furnace do the work. I don’t know. Maybe I’m just too paranoid about things like that. But I personally always tell my parents and my older aunts and uncles that I would prefer to help them out with their higher heating bills than to find out that they are using a space heater in their home! I don’t want them to accidentally cause a fire and have something awful happen. I would feel just terrible if that ever happened and I could have helped to prevent it. I like using my heating system, and I don’t mind setting my thermostat much higher than most people do!
