· Most Space Heaters in the Bathroom: Most space heaters are not equipped with proper plugs for use in the bathroom. Due to their close proximity to water, it is best to save the heating for somewhere else in your house.
· Turning off the heat in your home during the day: Also known as allowing your pipes to freeze and burst. If the temperature is going to be close to freezing, it’s not worth letting things get so cold that you have a major plumbing disaster. Most people recommend keeping your thermostat around 68 degrees throughout the winter.
· Running a cook stove or BBQ indoors: Cook stoves and BBQs are meant to be burned outdoors where their greedy oxygen sucking capacity can be satiated. Don’t risk a fire, or death by asphyxiation by trying to warm things up the hard way.
· Getting your duct work cleaned: Cleaning your ducts before winter doesn’t really help your air quality, unless you have mold or vermin problems. Use that money to help better insulate your pipes instead!
