Can I heat my house with my oven fo a few days?

Space heater works better! Oven has no overheating automatic shut off! Gas oven is a flame, flame burns oxygen, no vent! You could be warm and dead before you know it!

Go ahead and try. Your house is gonna be awful warm for about twenty minutes until the big red truck with flashies driven by men in asbestos jackets show up.

Given all the responses about house fires ... I have a question .. because I've often wondered about the repercussions of using an oven .. Do you know if there is a limit to how many hours you could use an oven in a day?

I'm just thinking a turkey can take up to 4-6 hrs to cook (depending on it's size, of course) .. then pies, buns, and hordeurves .. another few hours .. Would that cause a house fire?

Would the oven remember that it was used for that many hours in one day, if you used it for same length of time the following day?

Someone please explain .. what ARE the limits?

No, you're fine cooking whatever, and you can do it daily!! But I would hesitate, having the oven on, when I was sleeping!!!

So it's safe to use as a heat source daily .. just not at night?

If you are using an electric oven, there is really nothing to limit use as a heat source. The element will have a definitely shortened lifespan, though. If you are using a gas stove,air recirculation and proper ventilation would be extremely important factors! CO and CO2 will be present. I wouldn't recommend doing such for any extended amount of time. Be VERY vigilant no matter what,though!

Absolutely you can safely heat your home with oven heat as long as it is not gas
