Lasko 755320

The Lasko 755320 Ceramic Heater is an ideal heater for a 300 square foot room. The oscillating tower will push the heat, set by the programmable thermostat, around the entire room instead of just in front of it.
The programmable thermostat is very handy if you want to have one set temperature in the entire room and for added convenience, you can use the multi-function remote control to set the temperature.

Review Details

The Lasko Ceramic Heater uses save-smart technology. This is done by the heater using the high heat setting to get up to the set temperature, and the medium heat setting to keep the temperature steady and then shut off when it reaches 3 degrees above the set temperature (or after it has been running for 8 hours). This is going to save a lot of electricity because instead of constantly being ran at one setting, the heater knows when to shut itself off.
For safety reasons, the Lasko will also shut itself off if it becomes overheated.

What We Liked

  • Digital Controls
    The digital controls make it easy to set the temperature because the turn dials can be difficult to set if it is dark. The digital controls are also a lot easier to see.
  • Widespread oscillation
    The oscillating tower is a nice feature because the heat is pushed around the entire room. Non-oscillating heaters only push the heat into the area directly in front of it.
  • Multi-function remote
    This makes it easier to program the heater from different parts of the room, not just right in front.
  • 8-Hour shut-off timer
    This is a nice feature because if someone forgets to shut the heater off, it will not run for more than 8-hours.
  • Save-Smart technology
    Save-smart technology is an energy efficient feature to this heater. The heater knows when to lower the heat and when to shut off.

What We Didn't Like

  • No silent setting
    The Lasko 755320 may not be the quietest heater around, but if you put the heater on the other side of the room from where you are, you may not be able to hear it anyway.
  • Digital display on top
    It would be nicer if the temperature could be seen without having to get up and look at it.

Conclusion

For those who want to set their temperature without having to get up each time to do it, the Lasko heater's remote control will do just that. It is a fantastic convenience, especially for those who may have trouble moving around. Remember, it is only recommended for a 300 square foot area. Other than that, the oscillating tower and safety features make this heater the best choice in its price range.
