I bought the Lasko Tower Ceramic heater for my basement, but only to use if I am down there working. My basement is pretty cold in the winter, so the heater is not capable of getting up to the degree of heat I would like, but it does raise the temperature in the room a few degrees. It is most effective if I keep it near me. I do like that it has a digital reader and the it oscillates.
It had a remote, but I already lost it. It's no big deal, though. I like this heater because it is easy to operate and I can set it on High, Low or Auto. I like auto the best and that is the setting I always use. I like it the best because I can set the temperature I want and it will keep running to get to that temperature. It also has a timer you can set so that it will turn off automatically after whatever amount of time you specify.
If it tips over, it automatically shuts off. Since I have small children, this is the most important feature for me. However, if the children go up to it and play with it, without tipping it, it will not shut off.
