Can heat cause any kind of potential damage to a printer?

Hi. I am curious and serious. I moved from upstate NY to the Bronx.

I have been here about a month as of the time of the posting of this.

I have been busy decluttering my bedroom, which I want to turn into a home office/workspace and I have been busy focusing on getting myself together and familiarizing myself with my new neighborhood and community.

I still need to set my new printer up, which I bought last year a few days before Christmas before I moved.

My question is, can a working radiator or ANY tangible heat source cause any kind of potential damage to the printer in any form or fashion if the printer is set up next to them?

Computer printers ARE made of plastic.

I tried looking up info about this online and didn't find anything.

Please help. Thank you.

@JGoldman10,
You could always contact the printer company and ask them.

@JGoldman10,
It's not a good idea. From drying ink in the print heads to causing issues with the computer components, I don't think this is something you want to do.

@JGoldman10,
You could have realized that heat and consumer electronics never mix well. A very good general rule.
