Each outlet or group of outlets has a circuit breaker or Fuse. The total drain of all the things on that circuit may have blown the fuse or circuit breaker. See what else is not working, and try to determine what you can unplug. A 1000 watt heater draws only enough power to equal half the 20 amp capability of most home circuits. That heater, a TV, a bunch of lamps, a computer and several other things in the same circuit could easily add up to enough current to pop the breaker. Find another circuit that doesn't have as much load on it.
