Is it good to use room heater during winter?
Hello, Is it good to use room heater during winter? Winters are already dry and harsh but using a heater for too long in room can further deplete the moisture content in the air, making it even drier. This is the reason I am skeptical about using room heater. Please provide your suggestions.
@yash During the winter season, there is nothing more comforting than snuggling in your razai with the room heater on. But doctors warn that leaving your heaters on for the entire night cannot only lead to sleepless nights, dry skin, and allergy but can even prove to be fatal. Sleeping with the heater on increases the levels of carbon monoxide in the room above the safe level. People with heart disease may get chest pain, while smokers with heart disease are particularly at risk, so are young children and elderly. The risk of asphyxia (sleep death) is high when using gas heaters. The excessive carbon monoxide in the room chokes the supply of blood to the brain, which can lead to haemorrhage and eventually death.
