Defrost Your Rental with a Space Heater


To space heat or not to space heat. If you're renting an old, drafty house, that's often the question.

A space heater can seem like a good quick fix, but some fear they're dangerous and would rather just avoid any potential fire-starters. But no need to fear them. Space heaters can save you money if you use them correctly. They're a great way to quickly heat a room or small area and they enable you to turn down the heat in the rest of the house.
