Users of the Lasko 754200 Ceramic Heater (starting at $23, Amazon) praise the durability and heat output of this budget space heater. Lasko 754200 reviews on Amazon comment approvingly on its years of service and efficient, low-cost heating ability. One user notes it can raise the temperature in a mid-size room a good 10 degrees in less than an hour and another says it helps save on propane costs.

There are numerous accounts in Lasko 754200 reviews of how well this model performs in relatively large spaces; one consumer even says he had to turn down the house thermostat because this space heater is so effective.

Despite all the effusive praise, we did come across a couple of minor gripes. Several Lasko 754200 reviews describe the fan as weak when in fan-only mode, and on Home Depot, one consumer grouses that the cycling of the thermostat leaves him alternately sweating and shivering during the night.
The Lasko 754200 Ceramic Heater is a convection heater -- it uses electricity to heat ceramic components and a fan to blow the heat into the cold air. It's extremely compact (it measures about 6 inches deep by 7 inches wide by 9 inches high) and portable (it has a carrying handle and weighs about four pounds). The Lasko 754200 also sports an adjustable thermostat, two heat settings (900 watts and 1500 watts), a fan-only setting (for warmer weather), and automatic shutoff (for safety).
We're impressed by users' accounts of how thoroughly this tiny space heater takes the chill out of large spaces and how durable it proves to be. Several users note that they purchased replacement units when one gave out or plan to do so when the time comes. Overall, the Lasko 754200 is a powerful and low-priced little space heater that rises to the occasion.
