Be sure to take some safety precautions with and heater. While most modern heaters are built well with many safety features it is never a good idea to leave one unintended.
Also be sure how your electrical works and how many devices are on a circuit. Most breakers handle between 3-5 outlets and possible a light. Most homes are wired to use a 15 amp max on any breaker circuit and will throw the breaker if it is overloaded.
Since most all electric heater can go-up to 1500 watts any other electrical devices can push the breaker to its tipping point.
