With temperatures in the single digits, people will be doing whatever it takes to get warm. Make sure you monitor all your heating sources and never leave them unattended or allow your children to play near them.

The most common thing for people to do is turn their furnaces on. This is generally one of the safest ways to heat your home but it can also be costly. That is one reason some people turn to other options. This includes fires, space heaters and even ovens. All of these forms of heat can be dangerous if they're not used properly. space heaters can catch things on fire if they are plugged in to long or near flammable objects. Of course, so can fires.
 
The oven is another danger that isn't just the root of catching your house on fire. Using an oven to heat your home is extremely dangerous because of the amounts of carbon monoxide it releases. You shouldn't use this as a heating source.
 
No matter what way you choose to keep your house warm over the next few days, make sure you do it properly so that your family is warm and safe.
