Hello All -

I'm just wondering what the general concensus is as far as leaving space heaters on over night?

I have an oil filled radiator type and thus far have not left it on over night. It does have 3 settings: Low = 600 watts / Medium = 900 watts / High = 1500 watts.

Even though I've not left it on overnight...I'm thinking it might be safe if left on Low? What do y'all do?

Many thanks,
Gypsy

It should be safe. We have used small ceramic heaters many nights in our camper with no trouble. Just keep anything flamable away from it.

I've left my oil filled on overnight several times (as long as we're there - obviously). I see no problem with that.

Yes, it's safe as long as nobody does anything silly like pile flammable stuff up in front of it.

It's no different than leaving it on at home. We leave our Vornado heaters on.

Yes, I have left my oil filled on over night. They are safe to use.

Yes, they are permanently installed low wattage baseboard heaters. No reason to not leave them on.

We leave our electric "oil filled" on over night all the time just to help with condensation and to knock the chill off. I think it's the safest option. The propane is so noisy no one can sleep with it cycling. We also have a couple of electric blankets when it gets really cold.

I also leave my oil filled radiator on, but its the only type I trust to do so.
