So, I need an electric space heater for my apartment. I don't need anything huge, just something that can sit next to the couch or my desk when I'm doing homework or just watching TV. I just don't like turning the thermostat up if I don't have to. The main objective here is to remain relatively comfortable while keeping my bill down. Any suggestions?
I just picked up a cheapo one from wally world and it is a cooker

Yeah, I got a simple one from Lowes for around $20. Works great for sitting and being a bum at my computer bench. Not sure if I'd use it on a rug though.

House fires are not a fun experience and for sure something I don't ever want to experience again, smoke detectors saved our lives. The fire department saved our house. I'd just play it safe and not use one, just wear a sweater or something around that's what I do.
Given the price of LP gas that I use, it's actually cheaper for me to turn down the thermostat a lot, and heat the room I'm in with a space heater. Pretty much all space heaters put out the same heat with the same amount of power used (1500 watts.) Make sure the one you get has safeties, and only use it when you are present and awake. Other than that, I recommend one with a small fan that blows over the elements. I have the Maxi-heat NH600, works well, and cheap at Wal-Mart when I bought it. No need to spend more than 20-30 bucks.
