*Dollar amounts based upon Arrowhead Electric Cooperatives Winter rate  
(September – May 2009) of $0.096/kWh          
                   
*Space Heaters should only be used when a room is occupied      
*Some units have a tip over switch that shuts down the unit if it falls or is knocked over
*If possible, turn down the thermostat on the furnace when using space heater(s) as it will save fuel
*Space heaters advertising “special” features should be researched as all electric space-
heaters use watts to create heat.            
* A watt is a watt no matter how the product is marketed or advertised.    
*A $50 space heater will perform as well as a $300 or $400 space heater of the same wattage.
