A space heater can be life-saver if you have a home that isn’t particularly energy efficient, spend a lot of time in just one particular room of your home, or just need to heat a less or unheated area of your home. We purchased the Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater to help heat our family room during the winter months. Here is our experience.
How well does it work? The biggest reason for owning a space heater such as the Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater is so it will warm up an area of your home. We have a large family room that was an addition to our older home. It has vaulted ceilings and lots of windows. It is a lovely room but it gets very cold in the winter. We purchased the Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater to try and warm this particular room. The heating ability of this space heater is excellent. We have French doors leading to this room so we are able to close it off from the rest of the house. This single space heater is able to heat our 25 by 26 foot family room without any trouble at all, see details.
Is it built to last? We went through two space heaters before purchasing the Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater. Both space heaters burned up within months of owning them. Our Lasko 758000 is going on its third winter and it is still working just as well as the day we bought it. We use this space heater daily during the winter and it typically stays on for at least 5 hours at a time.
Is it affordable? The Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater is in the middle range for price when compared to other ceramic heaters of the same basic size and wattage. At around $69.99 you can certainly find space heaters that are less expensive and some that are more expensive. The excellent heating capability and the durability make the $69.99 price tag of the Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater quite reasonable.
How energy efficient is it? The Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater features a thermostat design so it will cycle on and off if you set it to do so. This should help with the energy efficiency of this space heater. Other than that feature I cannot really attest to the energy efficiency of this model. I did not notice a change in our heating bill.
What are the features? The Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater is slim and sleek in design. It fits easily into smaller spaces and blends in nicely with most decors. The controls are easy to use and the electronic display is easy to read. Because the Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater is cyclonic it does a better job of circulating heat around the room than heaters than utilize a fan. There is an overheat protection to keep your family safe built into this space heater as well. Overall I give the Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater an “A” for its excellent heating ability, durability, affordability, and ease of use.
