And when used safely, they can make a normally cool room quite comfortable. But the key is to use them safely. If you have a portable heater of any kind, follow the manufac- turer's instructions to the letter. And if your portable heater involves any kind of combustible fuel, remem- ber that a flame consumes oxygen in a room and nor- really emits carbon dioxide or other harmful gases. So, you need to provide ade- quate ventilation at all times. And if there's any question at all about the safety of a portable heater, give us a call. We want you to have a warm winter, but most importantly, a safe winter! PLUMAS-SIERRA REC Electrlclt9 Satellite TV Internet t5301 832-4261 etc. We again emphasize that this is a four-hour overview.
