As you gear up for the colder months, you might ponder acquiring a space heater to supplement your other heating sources or even as your main heating source. 

There are countless different types of heaters available on the market. Choosing one from another can be a dauntless task.  

We can help. 

Lasko CD09250 is a ceramic portable space heater that is perfect for your home or office. We are going to explain some of its main features so as you can make an informed decision. Without further ado, let’s jump straight into the features.

Description of the CD09250 by Lasko

Lasko CD09250 is a ceramic-based heater. This means it uses a fan to force the heated air out of the appliance and distribute it across the room. Ceramic heaters tend to produce more heat than their counterparts of similar size. This makes it possible to create small portable space heaters that are able to heat the room by using fan delivery. 

The space heater has a 3-level setting to help you adjust your desired settings according to your preference. The highest level achieves a maximum of 1500 Watts of energy which is enough to produce comforting warmth needed for a mid-sized room.  The lower level is able to produce about 900 Watts of energy. The lowest level is a fan only setting. It can be used to redistribute the heat farther and bring down the temperatures. 

A conveniently placed control panel on top of the appliance helps in setting different levels of heat. It consists of a thermostat that helps you determine the temperature you want to set the house too. Both the three-level setting and the thermostat are set using a control knob. If you are looking for a digital thermostat where you can precisely set the temperatures, you might want to buy a separate thermostat. The control knobs set temperature using levels as opposed to actual temperature figures. 

Portability is a huge factor especially if you need a space heater that you can relocate frequently with ease. At 3.5 pounds in weight, relocating won’t be a headache and this also means the appliance can be placed in a raised ground like a table-top. This space-heater also features a convenient carry handle to ensure ease while handling the heater.  

The heater is also made with features to ensure maximum safety for users. One of the main safety features is the thermal overload protector. It consists of a thermal cut off switch that interrupts the electric current when the heat reaches to a certain temperature. These economical protectors ensure there is reliable protection for the appliance from overheating which might lead to accidents.  

Another safety feature is the cool touch exterior that protects users from burning in case they come into contact with the device. The exterior material conceals all heating and glowing materials making it cool to the touch. You will not have to worry if you or your child accidentally touch the device.

At around $32, this space heater comes complete with no installation kits or assembly required – it works straight out the box. You just have to plug it directly into your power source and that’s it! You can get cozy now! 

However, the appliance does not have an oscillating feature. You will have to keep changing the device heating direction if to achieve an even room coverage.

Users' feedback

Users quotes on Amazon.comI live in a 40ft camper and bought this heater to use in my bedroom which is about 12ft x 15ft with the slide out. It will keep the entire area warm on a 40-degree night set about 1/3 of max on high setting. It's a very small heater and works tremendously well! It's also very quiet with a minimal amount of hum that emits from the heater. I've been using it for 2 years now."

Users quotes on Amazon.comI'm using the heater in my front bedroom, ~10' x 10'. I needed it particularly for the recent drop in temperatures. It works so well I'm downright hot in less than an hour and have to turn it off. And that's from a cold start. The way I use it, I get warm enough, turn it off, unplug it, and wait until I get cold again, which could be a couple of hours. When I use it again it heats the room up within 15-20 minutes. Just make sure it's on the ground or low - hot air rises. And I have something under it, not on bare carpet. "
