Consumerreports got it right.
Great Remote Control
Heats the Whole Room
Maintains Room Temp Well
Don't be fooled by its size.<br />I live in the NJ mountains where temperatures drops to (-0) minus-zero, and is currently 7-degrees, with wind chill that makes it feel like 10 below outside. Temperature that will kill you if stranded & improperly dressed.<br />Despite that, & despite going through one of the coldest & longest winter in 20 years, we've only used our Lasko 6462 to maintain the temperature in our bedroom throughout the winter, due to a non-working whole-house steam heater.<br />Consumer Reports got this one right... IT WORKS.<br />If its turned off & we come home to a cold room, once we quickly & briefly warm the room up with a portable propane heater (with the room ventilated of course), the Lasko maintains the desired room temperature without fail.<br />And though its digital reading may show 54 or 55 degrees, don't be misled.<br />We use three thermostats, a radio controlled one that links to an outside sensor-transmitter, & displays a combined external, internal thermostat & forecast, plus we have two analog thermostats that also measures the barometric pressure & humidity, and though the Lasko may display 54/55/56 degrees (not sure why), the actual room temperature shown by our other thermostats are a consistently comfortable 65 degrees; our preference.<br />Bottom line, this is a nice, quite, aesthetically pleasing (and so far) reliable compact heater for a reasonably sized room, which we are happy with.<br />Get this little Gem.
