Is it bad to heat up your house using the oven leaving the oven door open?

Report as

It isn't a good idea because first of all, it a very expensive way to heat your house. Second, you might overheat the oven and burn out the heating element.
It is dangerous also if little children are in the house..
I suggest you just dress in layers and move around the house often to circulate the blood.

Let's see on how many levels it is wrong. Not recommended by the manufacturer, the fire dept and first aid squad. Must be a reason all having to do with safety.

As long as everyone stays away from touching the actual heat it's safe. Kind of an expensive heating method but I think most of us have done it.

It should be done only when necessary,, like when the furnace quits. always remember....safety first

Is it gas or electric? Sounds like it would be very dangerous if it were gas.

It's a nice quick way to take a chill off but I wouldn't use it to actually heat the house

What I do when I use the oven to heat up the house is I bake something turn off the oven then just leave the over door opened.
