Give Your Heater Some Space

Space heaters are a great way to warm up a cold room or provide supplemental heat to your home. But while convenient, they are also a leading cause of home fires during the winter months. If you're going to use a space heater, here are a few tips to make sure you stay extra warm – and safe.

Do's

  • Use only equipment that is made for home heating. Use all types of heaters carefully and follow all directions for safe use.
  • Use a space heater that has been tested to the latest safety standards and has been certified by a nationally recognized laboratory. These heaters have the most up-to-date safety features. Older space heaters may not meet newer safety standards.
  • Place the heater on a level, hard, nonflammable surface, such as a ceramic tile floor.
  • Make sure space heaters are at least three feet away from bedding, drapes, furniture and other flammable materials.
  • Place smoke alarms on every level of your home, outside of sleeping areas and inside each bedroom.
  • Utilize a carbon monoxide detector.

Don'ts

  • Never leave a space heater on when you go to sleep.
  • Don't place a space heater close to any sleeping person, bedding, furniture, drapes or other flammable materials.
  • Never use gasoline in a kerosene space heater, as even small amounts of gasoline mixed with kerosene can increase the risk of fire.
  • Never use your oven, grill or clothes dryer to heat your home. This could cause a fire or dangerous carbon monoxide gas, which produces deadly, odorless, colorless fumes.

Utility Scam Update

We want to make you aware of a long-running, nationwide utility scam that is again being reported in New Jersey. The scam involves a caller posing as an electric company employee threatening to shut off power unless an immediate payment is made, using a pre-paid debit card such as a Green Dot card.

These pre-paid cards are available at convenience stores and drug stores, and customers can use them to pay bills or add money to online accounts. However, JCP&L does not endorse the use of Green Dot cards as a bill payment method.

If a customer receives a call from someone demanding payment of their electric bill by using a Green Dot card, they are being scammed and should report the crime to local authorities. Although our company representatives sometimes do call customers to remind them that a payment is past due, they explain how a payment can be made using one of the following established payment options:

Any customer who has doubts about a call from someone claiming to be from JCP&L, especially one demanding immediate payment, should call JCP&L's customer service number at 1-800-662-3115. For more information, visit www.firstenergycorp.com/paymentoptions.
