I don’t know why some people like to use space heaters in their homes.
I have always been scared of using space heaters in my house, for some reason.
I think that it actually goes back to when I was a little kid and I used to spend the night at my grandma’s house during the winter when I was off of school. I didn’t ever really like the fact that my grandma had space heaters placed here and there around the house, but she always seemed to want to use them for some reason. I think that my grandma thought that space heaters would save her money on her heating and cooling bills. Now that I’m older, I know for a fact that the electric space heaters were actually costing her more on her electricity bills than if she had just turned the thermostat up a couple of degrees. I think that my grandma was just too old and set in her ways or something. She would use her wood burning fireplace a lot but then when she got older, she got to the point where she wouldn’t even use that. She only wanted to sit in her recliner, read her books, and have her electric space heater plugged in right next to her. I always used to worry that one of her books would fall on top of it and cause a fire or something. Now that I am older, I have a house of my own. I never hesitate to turn the heating system up whenever I am too cold though. I will never have a space heater in my own house.
