This natural convection heater will take longer to warm the room but it circulates warm air silently with no fan noise. Neutral color and low-profile blends easily with any decor; digital display with thermostat and timer; adjustable thermostat (60 to 85 degrees F); Auto-off timer (1 to 8 hours); built-in safety features: tip-over safety switch, automatic overheat protection; 1500 watts of comforting warmth; lightweight with carry handles for portability; ETL listed. Convection heaters naturally provide gradual, even heat without a fan, making them more quiet than electric heaters with fans. As the air near the heater is warmed and rises it creates a natural circulation of the air which spreads warmth throughout the room. It may take longer to heat a space with convection heat than with an electric heater with a fan, but once the space is warmed it will sustain even heat. To reduce the risk of electrical shock and fire please observe the following instructions: - Cleaning the Heater regularly will help to maintain its efficiency. - Always unplug the cord before moving, servicing or cleaning. - NEVER place the Heater in or near water. DO NOT IMMERSE HEATER IN WATER. - Clean the Heater only with a vacuum equipped with a brush attachment; the vacuum will remove the lint and dirt from the surface of the Heater. - Vacuum intake grills every two weeks; this will help to maintain the optimum Heater performance. - Use a toothbrush or other soft bristle brush to gently loosen any dirt not removed by the vacuum. - NEVER attempt to take apart the Heater.

Quiet, Reliable, Quality heater
The plug on my heater does not get hot like some others have reported. It's quiet. It works just like it should.
The display shows the current temperature. When you hit the + or -, it shows the set temp. The thermostat lets the temperature swing about 3 degrees. I have it set on 69, and it kicks in at 68 and off at 71.
I'm a lot happier with this one than I am with my noisy 10 yo oil-filled heater.
We use this heater as supplemental heat in our bedroom. In our 3,000 sq ft house, 700 sq ft is not heated - the rest is hot-water-cast-iron-radiator heated. This 1500 watt heater seems perfect in the 250 sq ft bedroom, but it's not quite enough for the 450 sq ft rec room. The rec room has drafty windows, so that could be most of the problem.talaki3
I had a similar product (Patton brand) years ago that I used to heat a 10'x40'x81/2H office space. I was always satisfied by it's performance. This Lasko is even better, and with the digital readout makes it a superior heater for a mid-range room. With a ceiling fan, you can use it in a larger room, or one with vaulted ceilings like the one I use this in. For the price, quiet operation, consistent thermostat control, you will be happy, satisfied for the purchase.IcantLIE
We have a large finished walkout basement that doesn't get used very much. We have a dehumidifier, also from Walmart, in the back unfinished part, but the front part still smelled a little basementy. We have forced hot air heat, but it only heats the basement when it is on in the great room which is above the basement. So to try to freshen up and add a few degrees of heat to this basement area I thought I'd try this inexpensive, descreet heater. It has adjustable heat, it tells you what the heat is when you turn it on and a 1-8hr timer. For $60, free shipping, and I got next day delivery! I'd say great buy. I don't know about heating whole rooms in the dead of winter, but as a supplemental heat source, used sporadically as needed, I think it's perfect! It's light weight and quiet too.AustinBargainShopper
