Lasko 5119

The Lasko 5119 Ceramic Tower Heater is perfect for heating those cold areas in the house during the colder seasons. It has a convenient digital display for easy to read temperatures and a programmable thermostat with an 8-hour timer. Its carrying handle makes it easy to move from room to room. This heater is loaded with features to make heating your room easy and convenient.

Review Details

The Lasko Tower Heater gives off enough heat to make sure your whole room is covered, and is portable and light enough to easily carry from room to room where the heat is needed. The clear digital display makes it easy to see what the temperature is set at and how warm it is in the room (which is easier than having to mess with unlit turn dials in the middle of the night).

The other nice thing about it is that it oscillates so the heat is being moved through the whole room and not just one area. The tall tower is easy to see and less likely to be knocked over. You can use it in most rooms in your house without a problem.

What We Liked

  • Multi-function remote control
    This is a great tool for those who cannot get up at the moment they want to change the heat or if you want to change the temperature from a different room.
  • Oscillation
    This pushes the heat into the whole room instead of just one area.
  • Digital controls
    The digital controls are much easier to use and see than the traditional knob controls. It is easier to use in the middle of the night or if the room is dark.
  • 2 Quiet settings
    Most people do not like to listen to their heater run (even though it is a sign that the heater is actually working), so the quiet settings are great for people who do not like to hear their heaters.
  • Carrying handle
    The carrying handle makes it easy to carry the heater from room to room.

What We Didn't Like

  • Height
    Even though the height is great for more heat output, it may still be difficult to fit on a desk or small areas.
  • Indoor use only
    Some people would like a heater like this for camping or other outdoor activities, but this specific heater can only be used indoors. Remember, this is not because it isn't powerful enough, this is due to safety precautions.


The Lasko 5119 is perfect for heating many rooms in your house. It is easy to carry around and puts out a lot of heat while dispersing it evenly. The remote and digital display makes for easy settings and temperature readings. It is a quiet heater with multiple safety features to ensure your heater is the best for your home.
