If you’re like me, you’ve got at least one room in your house that just doesn’t get warm enough. For me, it was my bedroom and this winter I decided it was time to upgrade my old space heater to something better and more quiet so it didn’t bother me while sleeping.
After some extensive research and returning a couple of heaters that didn’t make the cut, I found one that works great and doesn’t cost too much.
This Lasso has a clean look, an easy to read display and intuitive controls. But the main thing I noticed was how quiet it was.
Some space heaters use small fans which can be quite loud or make a loud ticking sound when turning on or off which can be annoying when trying to sleep as it turns on and off. The Lasso didn’t have this problem. While it wasn’t completely silent, it was very quiet.
It did a great job of warming up my bedroom which is over 250 sq ft (9ft ceiling) in only about 10-20 minutes depending on how cold it was and how warm I wanted it thanks to 1500 watts of heating power. It can be set to oscillate back and forth to spread out the heat for larger areas or when you don’t want the heat focused in one direction.
The 8 hour timer lets you set how long you want it to run or you can just set the temperature you want the room to be and it will automatically keep the room at that temperature. Another great touch is that it comes with a remote control that lets you control it from across the room or without having to get out of bed.
Basic safety features include overheating protection which will shut the heater off if the heating element gets too hot and the outside of the unit stays cool so there’s no danger of being burnt if you or your pet touches it.
I love this heater. It’s quiet, heats the room quickly and I don’t have to get out of bed to adjust it. It really hits the sweet spot between features and price.
