Questions & Answers for Lasko Lasko Remote Control Ceramic 1500-Watt Tower Heater with Digital Display

Question

Is this safe to leave on all day, unattended?

We are interested in getting this heater in our third story bedroom. There is no heat source for the bedroom so any heating system we purchase would need to be running all day to keep the room warm as it is difficult to reheat a room that has cooled down considerably. Any help is appreciated!

While there is no heating element, I still wouldn't leave it unattended even on a low setting. I would treat it as an electric stove. It wouldn't be a good idea to leave a hot stove unattended.

I would not leave it unattended. This is a space heater and should never be left to run if you are leaving your home. If you're at home and can keep a check on it, I don't anticipate any problem - but I'm not a professional and I can only offer advice based on what I think.

I would be comfortable leaving it unattended, as long as you are home and somewhere in the house while it is running. I would never leave the house with it running due to potential hazards that exist with any space heater.

answer 8
I would have to say yes! Because it will automatically shut-off if it gets too hot. It also has an 8 hour timer that you can set to shut it off at your desired time. Just keep the back vents and front grille clean by vacuuming them on a regular basis, especially if you have pets. And you should be fine.

I can hear it, but I don't find it to be noisy at all. It won't keep you awake at night, if that is a concern. I find it kind of soothing, myself. You will hear clicking when the thermostat reaches it's setting. Some people find the clicking annoying, but it doesn't bother me.

answer 2
As with any electrical heater that puts out 1500 watts you will need a minimum 14 gauge heavy duty extension cord or better yet 12 gauge if the extension is very long to avoid melting the extension cord from heat build up.

I would be concerned about wood dust accumulating in this or any other electrical heater you put in your shop and would suggest blowing it out thoroughly with a blasts of air after using if there is any possibility of dust getting into it.

Better yet, check with the manufacturer and see what they have to say (as always, safety first.)

Wood be great for garage. It would help circulate the air & keep it nice in warm while you are working & as you start to work & get hotter you can adjust temp down w/ out losing the heat.

I usually plug it into a 'good' extension. The bigger the gauge, the longer the run. Of course, I'm over there feeling the wire for warm spots too. About every ten min to start, then a little longer, the better I know it's not gonna melt. The manual says to make sure your house wiring can handle the load. This applies to extensions too. Maybe moreso.

No, you cannot set it to turn on at a later time, just to turn off after 1 to 8 hours. And a wall plug timer will not work. It will turn on the heater, but there will be no fan or heat because the mode needs to be set after it is turned on.

Does not turn on by itself. A wall plug timer does not work either. It will turn the heater on, but the blower and heat do not come on because a mode cannot be chosen until after the heater has been turned on. Heater turns on, but no blower and no heat.

This model 5538 has a timer that is a countdown to shut off not to countdown to turn on. The 5538 has a remote that allows you to turn the machine off (while in bed) and turn it on high or low or set a temp and get it going from bed.
