Safety First We understand you’re cold but using anything other than your furnace to heat your home could be hazardous or deadly. Never use any heating methods that are intended for outdoor use such as outdoor grills or kerosene heaters, they create carbon monoxide. If you have a wood stove, an electric space heater or a fireplace, those are all acceptable heating options.
