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