5.0 out of 5 stars nothing not to like, December 2, 2007
By 
This review is from: Lasko 754200 Ceramic Heater with Adjustable Thermostat (Kitchen)
I got one of these last year because i wanted a strong heater in a small package, small footprint, to use in my bathroom, because the built in heater stopped working. It's perfect for heating a small room like that. Then i got another one for my bedroom, it's quiet, strong, and small, it fit into a small space near the bed. Then, i got a third one for the living room. The living room is a large room, and i use the heater like a small fire place, it really pumps out the heat. It's not going to heat the whole living room, but sitting next to it feels like sitting next to a small fire for warmth, very pleasant, not too hot when close to it, just a nice strong warmth. In the living room, the central heating doesn't do that well heating the lower part of the room on a cold night, the heat rises and it can be set on a high temperature and still be cold where we sit, so we use these heaters to warm up our space, nice source of heat, very portable, lightweight, sturdy. No complaints, it's perfect for what i use it for.

12/7/2013 Not much to say, an update was requested. i have 3 of these and only use one of them regularly now, but it works like new, strong and warm, as long as i'm near it. Good price.

In addition to getting one for the bedroom, one for the bathroom and one for the living room, i also got one for the office, at work, to have by my desk, and it kept me perfectly warm there when the A/C was way too cold. i since retired.

It's a great size to take along on trips where a heater might be needed.

1/8/14 update -- after reading the two informative comments which discuss heat in different parts of the the country, i want to add that I am in Southern California, Los Angeles area, and i don't know whether this kind of space heater would be adequate in a colder climate.

Also, i moved to a different home in 2011. When i wrote the review, i was living in an apartment, in a very mild climate area (Santa Monica). These heaters worked well, both in the closed bedroom and in the rather open living room. Now i live in three bedroom house, in an area where the winter climate is about 10 degrees colder. The central (gas) heating is even less efficient at warming the lower part of the rooms at the house, especially in the large open areas like the living room. To heat the area where i sit in the living room, i have switched from this small space heater to a larger model Lasko space heater,

Lasko 5521 Ceramic Tower Heater

It works well together with the central heating. I still have the smaller heaters in the bedrooms and they are working fine. I think they would be OK in the larger rooms too but i got one of these at OSH because they didn't have the smaller one. I will add that the tower heater didn't last nearly as long as the small ones reviewed here have lasted. It stopped working a few months ago. i replaced it through Amazon. The smaller ones are still working after many years.

Curious, most people do use these type in the bathroom even though it is technically risky if around water. I use one in the bathroom but it doesn't get wet. There are a few on the market that are for the bathroom with special plugs similiar to the plugs by most peoples kitchen sinks. I saw a bathroom heater by Holmes at Walmart.

Thank you for your comments on this heater. Here in North East Ohio it is very common to be below freezing in the day time for weeks in the winter. It is also common to be in the single digits at night. The coldest I remember at night was -25. That was so cold that you didn't feel freezing cold, you just hurt from the cold.

Our house is heated by radiant heat from baseboard water heaters. (same theory as a boiler system but uses a regular water heaters)

In the bedrooms the baseboard heaters are smaller then in the main areas of the house and the rooms are about 10 to 15 degs colder. According to the builder, the vast majority of new home buyers like the bedrooms cooler so its now a standard thing to put less heat in the bedrooms.

My 12 year old who is on the thin side is always cold. Once the temp is below 65 degs she gets cold. I need something to take the chill out of her room so she can sleep better and not freeze to death as she puts it.

So your reviews on this heater are very valuable to me and I have made up my mind that I will buy this soon.

May I humbly suggest that if the issue is a cold bedroom during sleeping hours, the most pleasant and cost effective solution, in my opinion, is an electric heated mattress pad. This way, the heat is delivered directly to where it is needed, and not wasted on heating air that will never be felt by a human. And it feels so very good. Sunbeam makes some reasonably good models, available at Amazon.

I dont think they are putting it IN their tub. Perhaps if you are drunk all day it may be a hazard to have a heater in your bathroom
