It can get pretty chilly during some winter months out where my husband and I live, but we try to conserve on how much energy we use, especially since the power bills can be outrageously high. We figured that it didn't make sense to heat the entire apartment by turning on the whole heating system, which ended up making our monthly electric bills go sky high, so we decided to go for a safe, but effective alternative by purchasing a portable heating unit that would warm the area of the apartment we used the most. A trip to Walgreens provided us with the kind of product we believed would best fit our needs- the Lasko Oscillating Ceramic Tower Heater. The thermostat is adjustable, it has three temperature settings, it's very energy-efficient and it takes up minimal space. This product has a safety feature, so we don't have to worry about it overheating and the Lasko Oscillating Ceramic Tower Heater keeps everything warm and toasty. We generally just use it during the evenings and, with the door closed, just turning it on for a little while can keep our bedroom heated comfortably throughout the night. We have had this unit for over a year now, with no mechanical problems, thus far, with it. When it finally outwears its use, as it inevitably will, we plan on buying another Lasko Oscillating Ceramic Tower Heater, because this one does such a great job. The price is very reasonable for such a quality product.
