The Fall and Winter seasons bring about the coldest weather out of the entire year, and keeping warm is essential, especially for your kids. The problem is that there are so many heaters all over the place it can be quite difficult to choose the right one. Some heaters are rather bulky and huge while others are not exactly safe to the touch. You want one that not only warms up a room on those frigid days but also to be safe around your children, and even your furry four legged children as well. I have searched around and found these following five top kid safe space heaters for home that matched these necessary qualities.
I chose these following ones based on their safety features. Each of them have one that's to unique that makes it safe to have in the house. One of the them is being that the unit is either warm or cool to the touch whenever it is turned on to prevent anyone from burning their hands. There's also an feature in some of these units that shuts off automatically to prevent overheat; something that also played a factor that helped me make my decisions. I also picked out these options based on their ability to heat up a room or an area of a room. This first one below is my favorite out of the others because on top of the safety features it has another perk that was really unexpected.
