It seems like summer just ended and now, all of the sudden, winter is on its way? I’m not quite ready for that. If you aren’t either, you could probably use a space heater right about now — and right on through till May. And if winter bums you out as much as it does me, here’s a silver lining: Amazon just cut the price on the über-popular Lasko Oscillating Ceramic Tower Space Heater to $45 when you apply the on-page coupon.
The beauty of ceramic is that it can transmit heat that's powerful yet consistent — that means no random dips or spikes in temperature...unless you want them. This heater from Lasko includes a thermostat and timer that allows you to customize your comfort. The airflow is also powerful and, paired with the oscillating feature, it can heat up a pretty big room or even a small apartment — 300 square feet, to be exact. If you’re watching your budget (aren’t we all?), this guy might just be powerful enough to save you cash on your heating bill.
Proof is in the pudding
When you’re shopping for an item as important as a heater for the winter, it has to work. Well, this one gets a thumbs-up from more than 20,000 shoppers who have already tested it out for you. A bunch of them know a little bit about staying warm — they live in some of the coldest states in the country!
“Very impressive,” opined a happy shopper. “Loved being able to control the hours it runs and the temperature. We used it in an 18' x18' bedroom in an unheated basement in Colorado, and it kept us cozy.” If you’ve spent any time in an unheated room during a Colorado winter, you know how cold that is. Brrr!
Cold weather companion
But the cold weather doesn’t end at the Continental Divide — people from all over the Midwest stay comfortably warm throughout the winter, thanks to this heater.
"My bedroom is a transformed basement den in an older home in Minnesota," shared a happy Midwesterner. "The space is quite large and gets very cold in the winter. Thankfully I decided to get this heater and no longer have to experience how cold it gets down here. I also love how quiet this fan is. Sometimes I can't even tell it's on when I go to bed."
"This little heater has changed my life in frozen North Dakota," raved another satisfied customer. "It provides a great amount of heat. It's very lightweight, so I can carry it from room to room as needed. It is maybe a little bit louder than I'd hoped, but that's a small price to pay for being able to say cozy warm without turning my furnace up full blast to heat the whole house. Really excellent space heater!"
But there’s more! The bonus feature on this heater is the remote control. If you think it’s a handy gadget for your TV, a remote for a heater will blow your mind.
“I bought this heater probably eight or nine years ago,’ wrote a loyal customer. “I smiled when I saw that Lasko still makes this exact model, as I'm here shopping on Amazon for another heater for my guest bedroom. It is on right now in my bedroom, and it still works great! Heats up nicely…the remote is handy ….I don’t have to get out of bed early in the morning to turn it on ….I can just turn it on from my bed. Love it!”
