As Cooler Weather Returns, Twin-Star International Turns Up the Heat on Preventing House Fires

Delray Beach, Florida, December 10, 2015 – Days are quickly turning cooler, which means the use of home heating appliances will be increasing, along with the number of home fires. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), in 2014, there was a home fire every 85 seconds, equaling 494,000 home fires that caused 3,275 deaths, 15,775 injuries and $9.8 billion in property damage. Twin-Star International’s goal is to help prevent electrical house fires by offering safe products for home heating.

Helping prevent electrical fires for years, Twin-Star International puts emphasis on making their products as safe as possible. With brands like Duraflame and PowerHeat, Twin-Star has thought of several innovative ways to allow their consumers to feel safe while using their products, like the Safer Plug, which is a patent pending technology that’s built-in to their product plugs that monitors the temperature of the plug and shuts off the appliance if it detects an unsafe rise in temperature.

Twin-Star’s electric heater brands, Duraflame and PowerHeat, offer a cool-to-the-touch feature making their products safe for operation around kids and pets. Some of their electric space heaters also offer a tip-over protection switch that turns the products off if they fall over. In addition, Twin-Star integrates programmable timers into some of their products that can shut off the heater when you choose.

Twin-Star is not only dedicated to keeping consumers safe, they also offer a great range of products to keep consumers warm. Duraflame and PowerHeat brands offer infrared heating technology, which has been independently lab tested and proven to warm rooms up to 1,000 sq. ft. Infrared heat helps to maintain the natural humidity within the air, resulting in moist, comfortable heat without drying out the room’s air. In addition, the ability to zone heat allows consumers to only heat the room they are in, allowing for savings on electric bills. Turning down the thermostat by 10 degrees during the fall & winter season and running an alternative heat source in the rooms you use most can save up to 10% on your energy bill.
