Lasko 755320 Ceramic Tower Heater with Remote Control
In most industries where a specific product is used a lot, and there are a lot of customers that are wanting to purchase the product, then there also a lot of brands. So it can be difficult to know what types of brands are the best to purchase from. That said, the market is quite quick to flesh out brands that are the best to purchase from, and in this case, we’re talking about Lasko. Lasko is known pretty well for creating some stellar home appliances, they’re one of the brands that customers purchase the most from, because of past customers leaving a good review for their products.
This Lasko 755320 Tower heater is famous on the market and has followed the past customer experience trend for future customers. So let’s see if those reviews are totally accurate, or if purchasing from a well-known brand is just a hoax.
Feeling the Heat:
This Lasko heater has two main settings, and that would be high and low heat. We would have liked to have seen a Medium heat setting, because at times the Low heat is just too little, and then the high heat is just too much. That said, the use of two heat settings is still very useful, and when you factor in that this is a Tower heater that’s able to output lots more heat, then it basically equalizes out.
The low heat setting on this heater has an output power of 750Watts, and that translates into a 2,559 BTU output. Then the high level has a 1500Watt output and that’s a 5,122 BTU output. So how’s the heat with this and what type of rooms can it heat up?
Well, the first thing to know is that this heater isn’t meant for heating up an entire house and you’re best off using it for bedrooms or for a living room. Having the heater on low setting is the best heat setting if you want to heat up a bedroom, and still stay on the low-end of power consumption. That said, with the high heat on, you’re able to heat up a room much faster and then switch to the Low heat once you’ve reached your desired temperature on the Thermostat.
Using the Thermostat:
Yes, this heater does have a thermostat and you’re able to set it all the way down 60 degrees and all the way up to 90 degrees. Once the heater goes two degrees higher than your set temperature then it will automatically turn off; also once the temperature of the room goes below 1 degree of your Thermostat setting, it will automatically turn back on to heat up the room once again. We find it strange that it simply doesn’t turn off once it’s surpassed the Thermostat setting, but at the same time, it makes sense that it doesn’t as it would constantly turn off and on once it falls below the set temperature.
Using in Larger Areas:
Using this heater for a living room is possible, but you’re going to have to keep the heater on high for while, as it’s a larger area. Another question that many people have asked if this is able to heat up a garage, and the truth is that it probably can’t, and that’s because it’s such a large area with not much insulation as compared to the rest of the house.
Other than the two heat settings, a part that helps with heating a room is its oscillating feature, which moves the heater’s angle. As a result, the heat circulates more, rather than just being put straight in front of it.
The power usage of this heater is going to depend on how long you’re using it for and what setting you’re using it at. It will raise your electrical bill, but by how much is more dependent on you rather than the heater itself. Using the heater on high for a couple of hours consistently is going to use a lot of power, and so we recommend using the high setting on this heater for getting things warmed up quickly and then using the low heat to keep things stable.
The entire heater comes fully assembled and the only thing you have to do is simply plug in the 5-foot power cord and you’re ready to use it.
Using this heat is quite easy. First, you begin just by pressing the middle button and that turns on the heater, and the center light turns on to indicate that it’s on.
Then to the right of the power button, there are three buttons. The first one is to change the heat from Low to High and vice versa. The other two buttons are to change the Thermostat from low to high. Also, if you press the Plus and Minus thermostat buttons at the same time you can change the temperature settings from showing in Fahrenheit to showing up in Celcius, and that is something that we found to be very cool.
Then to the left of the power button, there are two buttons. First, there’s the oscillating button and then there’s the timer button. The timer can be set to make the heater run for 1 to 4 hours.
The buttons on the heater are large and easy to find, but if there’s one thing that we found to be annoying is that they were quite loud when we’d press them.
This heater also comes with a remote that has all the features that you would use with the heater itself, so that’s definitely a plus side of getting it. The remote uses two AAA batteries that do not come with the heater.
Size and Weight:
Overall, this heater is quite small and you’re going to have no problems when it comes to placing it in a corner, as that’s really the best place to have this heater as it’s a central location. It has a height of 23 inches, a width of 8.5 inches, and a thickness of 7.2 inches. The weight of this heater is 8.7 pounds, so you’re going to have no problems moving it around as it also has a built-in handle at the back.
Structure and Material:
This Lasko Tower heater is made of plastic, and that’s not really a bad thing at all when you consider that most heaters on the market are made of plastic anyways. The buttons work well and so does the remote and overall we haven’t had any problem when it came to actually using this heater. That said, just make sure that you’re not placing it in a place that it can fall from a high height, as it will most likely break.
On the more technical side, this heater is quite safe with overheating protection. At the same time, many people that have purchased this heater have reported that their power cord has started to burn. That said, we’d like to defend this problem as most of these customers had this heater plugged into an extension cord and that’s not something that you should use it with. Instead, we highly recommend using this heater with either a Wall AC Outlet or with a Surge protector.
This heater does not feature tip over safety, unfortunately.
It’s able to output a good amount of heat with either of its settings, that said, we recommend using the high heat for getting a room warmed up rather quickly. Then using the low heat to maintain the temperature. The oscillating feature means that it’s able to change its angles around, and that can help circulate air greatly.
It has a tallish size, but even so, fitting this into a corner is the best area to place it in as it’ll stay out of the way and it’s also a central heating location that’s best to use the heater in. It also has a lightweight that makes it easy to move around.
The build quality is very good with its structure and safety with it using an auto-shutoff mechanism.
