Lasko CT22410 Ceramic Tower Heater with Remote Control
If there’s the thing that’s true about winter, it’s that it changes the way we live, the same goes for Summer too, as it’s really hot. That said, the excruciating cold is what makes us go out and purchase heaters, even when we have our central heating system running on high. As winter days can get so cold that your own Air conditioning system stands no chance against the cold. The use of a heater is a staple use within many homes, most households have at least one heater, and if you don’t then it’s probably a good idea to go purchase one as it’ll make you feel a whole lot better.
This heater from Lasko has quite a lot of components that truly make it worth purchasing as it’s not an oil-powered heater that just radiates heat. Instead, it takes the more powerful and modern approach to pushing out air and using other features that give it a powerful user experience for the cold months.
The first thing that most people wonder first about is whether the heater that they plan to purchase is able to even give off enough heat. It’s a perfectly reasonable thing to think about, as there are many heaters on the market that advertise being able to heat up lots of space, but at the same time, once you purchase them there’s no noticeable difference when you’re in the room. This Lasko heater doesn’t disappoint.
Feeling the Heat:
Even though it has a very small size, the heater does actually manage to push a good amount of heat out. There are two main settings on this heater, and that would be the “Low” and “High” setting. When you have the heater on the “Low” setting the only temperature setting that you’re able to put it on are 80 / 85 and Max. Why is that?
Well, the main difference between the Low and High settings on this heater is that they change the rate of how heat is coming out. So having the heater set to low means that the heat is outputted at a lower rate but it still maintains that same temperature of heat that comes out. It’s best to have this setting if you don’t want to aggressively heat up a room and is the perfect setting for smaller rooms in your house.
On the other hand, the high setting means that you’re going to be putting this heater to its full use, as you’re able to use the high setting on all the temperature settings that this heater has. All the temperature settings are:
- 60 Degrees
- 65 Degrees
- 70 Degrees
- 75 Degrees
- 80 Degrees
- 85 Degrees
- Max Degrees
This is the best setting to use this Lasko heater if you want to warm up a large room as it outputs heat at a faster rate. One of the surprising things that we found that it has a temperature setting of 60 degrees which we found odd as it’s pretty cool, so you’re rarely going to be using it. For all of the other temperature settings though, this heater has a good amount of heat.
The max power output of this Lask heater is 1500W, and that translates to 5,118 BTU if we’re talking about heat in comparisons with BTUs with this Lasko heater, and Patio heaters, it’s a low power output. But this is an inside heater so this much power is actually very useful.
Circulate the Air
What makes the heater even more useful with its high-temperature heater is the oscillating functions. In case you don’t know what oscillating means, as it’s pretty much a word that nobody really uses, it means that the heater moves right and left. Having the heater on High and near a high temperature such as 80 or above can prove to hold the best results if you want to heat up a room rather quickly. As moving the direction of the heat ensures that there’s circulation.
There’s no assembly with this heater, and that’s really a relief. It comes out of the heater fully put together and all you have to do is just place batteries within the remote that it comes with which controls the heater.
Size and Weight:
The best part of owning tower heaters is that don’t take up much space at all and that’s really the standard now and if a heater does take up a whole lot of space then it had better have equal heating power too.
This Lasko Tower heater has a 23-inch height, 25-inch width and an 8.5 in length. So simply placing this in a corner of a room will be the best way to take advantage of it. As it’ll be out of the way and providing heat from a central location.
Actually using this heater is simple enough. As the buttons on it are labeled and so are the icons too.
When you plug in the heater, the Red light comes on at the top and that’s to indicate that it’s ready to be turned on. Then you can press the Power button. Pressing the power button again once it’s on will switch the setting to either Low or Higher depending on what it comes on at first.
If you want to adjust the temperature, simply press the “Temp” button on the heater and it’ll switch it to the next highest heat setting. In the center is where there’s a button labeled “OSC” which of course is the oscillating button and once you press that, no matter what temperature setting the heater is at it’ll start rotating.
If you want to set a timer for how long the heater is on for, there’s also a timer setting, and there are actually four times settings that you can have the heat on for. There’s 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours and you can even have 3 hours of runtime if you combine the 1 and 2 hours together.
Uses a Remote
The remote is another major functional components of this heater as you don’t have to get up to use it. There are a total of 5 buttons on the remote. There’s the power button to turn on the heater. Then on the top right there are two buttons, with the one at the top being used to turn up the temperatures and the bottom turns down the temperature.
On the left side is also where there are two buttons with the top one switching High to Low or Low or High heat. Then the bottom button is used for rotating the heater.
Structure and Material:
The build quality of this heater is great, it’s made of plastic on the outside and of course, on the inside, it’s made of ceramic to make sure that heat transfer is kept smooth.
This heater actually has an auto-shut-off system in place that basically turns it off automatically if it does start to tip over.
The heat output of this heater is enough to heat small and large rooms, it just depends on how high or low you want to place the heat settings at.
It has a short height and an overall small size that makes it easy to place anywhere and not have to worry about it getting in the way. Actually using this heater is quite easy too, with things labeled clearly and the use of a remote is also very helpful for using the heater too.
Build quality is solid as it has a strong structure and it’s able to automatically turn off if it does tip over.

I just purchased this heater last night. It does NOT rotate on the LOW settings or on the LOWER temperature. You stated;
“If you want to adjust the temperature, simply press the “Temp” button on the heater and it’ll switch it to the next highest heat setting. In the center is where there’s a button labeled “OSC” which of course is the oscillating button and once you press that, no matter what temperature setting the heater is at it’ll start rotating.”
I conclude either you did NOT conduct a full review or the brand new heater I purchased is faulty.
