LASKO - Portable Heaters (3)
Portable heaters come in various sizes to address heat needs in the home, office, or other areas. Large designs feature robust casters for better mobility. Some offer over 100,000 British Thermal Units (BTUs), which means higher heating power for job sites and outdoor activities. These are ideal for sizeable areas such as construction sites and spaces larger than 4,000 square feet. Compact heaters can weigh less than 5 kilograms and easily fit into car trunks to take when going on camping trips. These can heat areas over 100 square feet in size, and they have sturdy handles for easy carrying. Heaters use different energy sources, including electric options that come with long cables. Kerosene, propane, and natural gas heaters are ideal for outdoor and construction applications.
Utility heaters come with various settings so that users can heat spaces to comfortable levels. Some have two, three, or more than nine different heat settings or fan speed functions. Others can oscillate up to 360 degrees to spread heat evenly. Select options also tilt to spread heat optimally. Smart heaters come with programmable thermostats to control heating and remote controls for hands-free operation. Several heaters have cooling capabilities for use in warm conditions. Special types of heaters include warmer blankets to keep items such as honey from freezing and crystallizing during winter. They help keep honey at proper viscosity so it holds its nutrients. Heating blankets have straps to secure them to buckets, and they work on both poly and steel buckets. The blankets are water-resistant and suitable for use both outdoors and indoors.
For added safety, select portable heaters feature anti-tip mechanisms that shut off the heaters if they fall over. This helps to prevent fires and injuries. Full-surround cages shield the heaters from accidental touching. Features such as cool-touch handles make them safe to carry. Several options also have indicators that show when the power is on and when grills are too hot to touch. Quiet options are ideal for camping and residential applications. Kerosene, propane, and gas options have flame safety systems and electronic ignitions.
