Space heaters are usually used to warm small spaces. In contrast to central heating systems, these heaters are portable, but can also be mounted on the wall. While a central heating system can warm all the connected places at the same time, space heaters are used for focused heat generation, usually in one part of a large room. These units usually work on electricity, but can also work on natural gas or propane. However, these heaters are not very safe, especially if they do not work on electricity. If the ventilation is not proper, natural gas and propane could prove to be very harmful. Space heaters may also pose to be a health risk. The primary health risk from such a heater is the carbon monoxide poisoning, especially if the source of energy is gas or propane. Another equally important risk is the risk of fire that can be mitigated by low surface temperatures or thermostat type switches.
