Size & Weight
iSiLER Ceramic Space Heater
Heat up in Safety
Strange though it might seem, the smaller the heater, the bigger the safety risks it lends. A lightweight and small unit is easier to skid and users more often tend to put it too close to some other objects or even cover it, which can cause overheating and fire. Hence, safety is a crucial aspect to check and this is where the iSiLer ceramic heater really shines.
First off, the model is distinguished by a specific triangular profile stand that provides steady support and minimizes the risk of tipping over the unit accidentally. So, you won’t knock it down easily, no matter whether the heater is placed somewhere on the floor or on the tabletop. Meanwhile, a smart thermostat with an overheating protection option will switch off automatically once the temperature inside the unit goes above 176°F. Other than that, the heater is all made of flame-resistant materials meeting ETL and UL certification standards and features a PTC ceramic element that generates no flame or light. With that, the iSiLer heater is one of the safest models in its class that can be securely used for kids and elderly people as well.
As for the heating performance, you’ll be surprised how a small heater like the iSiLer is capable of performing pretty much close to bigger models. Despite the size, the unit packs 1500 watts and a powerful heating element exudes really intense warmth. Hot air freely passes through large air outlets and quickly spreads around the room. Overall, this model can evenly heat up an area of up to 108 sq.m. and is a nice choice for spot heating. So, whether you need to heat a nursery, bedroom, study, playroom or a mid-size living room, the iSiLer will be able to help. And an adjustable thermostat will let you vary the temperature between 41 °F and 95 °F to your comfort.
... and Style
Safe and high-performing, the iSiLer features a cute stylish design. Encased in a vibrant yellow body and fitted with graphite elements, the unit is created in an industrial style and looks very modern. Bright and lovely shaped, it will serve not only as a functional heater but also as a piece of decor that will add a contemporary vibe to any home interior and perfectly blend with any office style. Besides, measuring only 7 inches in the widest part, this model is very compact and will perfectly fit limited-space areas and even take little space on your desktop. And a hefty carry handle on the top allows easily move it to where you need some extra heat.
To resume, the iSiLer is a compact, safe, functional, and stylish heater suitable both for home and for office use.
The Lightweight Champ
The Lasko 754200 leaves very little to be desired. From aesthetics to utility, this unit has something for everyone.
The classic design won't be able to add character to most settings but won't be attracting unnecessary attention either. The understated profile won't be making any statements but its clean look should be able to blend into most decorative schemes with ease. You can choose between black and silver housings but, unless that's not an option from a decorative perspective, we would recommend going with silver since this is the color that makes the unit look less bland.
Size-wise, the model is not the smallest unit we've come across but, measuring 9.2" x 6" x 3.7", compact enough to accommodate most spaces without taking much room. Plus, its weight does not go above 3.5 pounds, so you'll be able to move the unit with comfort and ease.
There's this nice little handle that hides behind the control dials that you can pull out and comfortably carry the heater, moving this compact appliance from the kitchen to the bedroom. Its coverage caps at ~300 square feet, which is pretty respectable considering the price point (~25 bucks). The heater comes fully assembled, meaning you can take the unit out of the box and put it to good use right away.
11 Temperature Settings
More often than not, personal heaters within this price range are pretty basic. This product is anything but basic. It comes fitted with 11 temperature settings, so you'll definitely be able to choose and maintain the setting that you find the most comfortable. There are also three presets that let you choose between low-heat, high-heat, and fan-only settings. Using these, you'll be able to regulate the heat output and even have the unit remain productive come summer. Drawing and outputting 1500 watts max, the unit is usually able to reach the desired temperature within minutes, providing that comforting warmth and keeping the space nice and cozy.
Without the right safety features, personal heaters can become impersonal safety hazards. These features are here though. The overheat protection mechanism makes sure that the unit does not overheat even when left unattended working hours and hours without breaks. Meanwhile, the housing remains cool to the touch too, so you won't have to worry about accidentally scalding fingers.
The bottom line, the Lasko 754200 can be rotated between different spaces, keeping large apartments comfortable one room at a time.

What’s more, in addition to a heating option, this model also boasts a “Fan only” mode which means you can easily use it as a mere fan blower to improve air circulation in your personal space on those hotter spring and summer days.
A problem many small and affordable heaters have is a specific smell exuded by a plastic body when heated. With the Andily, you won’t face this issue. Offered at a budget-friendly price tag, this unit is made of top-quality materials including durable plastic resistant to the flame. Hence, even if you decide to place the unit somewhere around pretty close to yourself, you won’t feel that nasty plastic smell as well as a quiet fan operation won’t cause any discomfort.

What Is a Ceramic Heater?
When it comes to choosing a space heater to add warmth and comfort to your home or workplace, there is a whole variety of types and a ceramic heater is one of them. Ceramic heating devices are fan-assisted convection heaters. Ceramic electric heaters are so called due to the use of ceramic plates or tubes as heating elements. When heated by electricity, they transfer the heat to aluminum baffles or fins and a fan blows the hot air into the room.
Being pretty compact in size, ceramic heaters generate a great amount of heat and warm up the room pretty quickly. Owing to a faster heating process, they consume less energy and are considered as one of the most energy-efficient and cost-effective types of space heaters. Besides, ceramic heating elements are more durable and less prone to damages caused by overheat and they are eco-friendly creating no dust, fumes or smell. Producing comfortable heat, ceramic heaters are ideal for spot heating when you need to warm up a bedroom, cabinet, bathroom, or nursery without raising the temperature at the rest of the living area.
If you like to spend time outdoors and want to relax on a terrace with a cup of hot chocolate and have a breath of fresh air even when the summer season is over, you might get interested in patio heaters that will help you create a cozy atmosphere near your house.
What Features to Compare
One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a ceramic heater is the space you need to heat up. The heating area each model is designed for and the unit efficiency directly depend on the output power of a heating element. A rule of thumb to follow if you want to pick the best ceramic heater is that the unit needs 10 Watts of power to heat up a square foot of room area. Thus, a 1500-Watt heater works great for the area up to 150 square feet.
Created rather for spot heating than for maintaining a consistently warm environment in large areas, ceramic heaters are normally not very large and are quite portable. Yet, like any other devices and electric units, they differ by size and design that should be considered if you want to get the unit that fully meets your individual needs and perfectly fits into the space you need to warm up. For wide areas and larger rooms, it's better to opt for a ceramic tower heater distinguished by an upright cylindrical shape while a wall model is ideal for narrow spaces and finely furnished premises. The most widely used kind of ceramic heater is a small portable unit that can be placed under the desk or even on the table and is the best choice for confined spaces.
Temperature Settings and Controls
Another point of attention that should not be overlooked is the number of temperature settings available in your heater. Even the most simple and affordable heaters will offer you the choice between high and low heating temperature. Meanwhile, more expensive and sophisticated models come fitted with several preset temperature modes and often feature an automatic thermostat allowing you to choose any temperature to your liking and switching off the heating element once the set temperature is achieved. Many modern units also boast energy-saving modes and timers. All of these features are designed both for your personal comfort and convenience and for minimising the power consumption to let you save on your energy bills.
Unlike coil heaters and other electric heaters, ceramic models are considered one of the safest heating units. And for a good reason. Not only are ceramic plates and tubes less prone to overheating but also this type of heater is distinguished by a self-regulating heating element. If the temperature gets too high, it will reduce electric current and switch off the unit preventing overheat and the risk of fire. Other safety features include tip-over switch, antifreeze protection, and cool-touch housing.
Did you know?
Actual Ceramic Heater Performance is not Only About Output Power
Though the heating capacity of a ceramic heater as well as any other heater is defined by the unit maximum output power, you might have noticed that the same heater does not perform the same in different premises and spaces and sometimes even in the same room. And, in most cases, it has nothing to do with the appliance operability. It happens due to a number of factors, besides the heater’s power, that affects the appliance performance. The main factors that vary the heating speed and efficiency include:
- Ceiling height. Since a warm air tends to go up, it will take a heater more time to heat up a room with high ceilings. And if the room is rather large, heating efficiency will further decrease.
- Type, quality, and condition of insulation of the building structure. Poorly insulated houses quickly expose heat instead of holding it inside.
- The number, size, and quality of windows in the room to be heated. Windows are poor insulators and cause significant heat loss. Hence, old glass windows emit about 90% of heat they are exposed to.
- Overall tightness of the area in terms of the draft. If space is overstocked with furniture blocking the airflow and free air circulation, the heating efficiency will reduce dramatically.
- Outside temperature. No house is 100% energy efficient, and homes located in cold regions will experience higher heat loss rate than those in regions with a warm or mild climate. Hence for cold areas and freezing weather conditions, you’d better increase the wattage from 10 to 15 Watts per square foot while estimating the heater performance.
Burning Smell Does not Necessarily Mean the Heater Malfunction
For a new unit you use for the first time, the burning odor is normal and it will usually dissipate in several uses. However, if you notice an unusual odor from the heater that has been already used and remained inactive for a long period, there is a great chance that the smell is caused by the dust build up on a heating element and your appliance simply needs cleaning.
The easiest and most efficient way to clean your ceramic heater is to use a brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner. The vacuum will quickly suck all the dust and lint from the heater surface. Under the regular heater use, clean it at least once per two weeks to maintain an optimal appliance performance.
Get the Best Pair for Your Heater to Create a Comfortable and Healthy Environment
Quickly and efficiently removing the chill and bringing enjoyable warmth to the room, ceramic heaters have a small drawback you would not notice at once but will eventually feel. Ceramic heaters dry the air. And though it might not seem a big deal at a glance, it could turn out a real problem if you use a heater on a regular basis, especially during winter season when the air is already drier. No need to say that too dry air might cause a number of skin problems, respiratory diseases, and even nosebleeds. To avoid this, simply pair your ceramic heater with a humidifier that will not only maintain the necessary air humidity level in the room but also clean the air from dust, bacteria, and allergens. Being a safe and clean source of heat, a ceramic heater will make a perfect tandem with a humidifier to create a comfy and healthy environment in your living space.
Q: What is the difference between convection and radiant heaters?
A: The major difference between these two types of space heaters is in the way they transfer heat. Thus radiant heaters heat the objects instead of air while convection models including ceramic heaters suck the cool air, heat it, and then blow it back into the room by means of a fan maintaining consistent hot air circulation. The main drawback of radiant heaters is that they are hot to the touch when operating and warm up the space pretty slowly. The next thing that differs radiant models from convection units is their scope of application. Radiant heaters work great for open spaces including outdoor areas and large premises with old windows and a lot of furniture. They will quickly warm up somebody sitting right in front them. Meantime, convection appliances, be it coil or ceramic heaters, are much more versatile in use and are suitable both for spot heating and for raising the temperature in an enclosed space in almost no time.
Q: What are the main advantages of ceramic heaters over coil heaters?
A: Both types being electric heaters and offering a clean source of heat without any hazardous emissions or smells, ceramic and coil heaters are not the same. If you are choosing between them, a ceramic heater would be a better option to go for several reasons. First of all, it is very efficient. Heating up to the optimal temperature within mere minutes it converts up to 85% of consumed power into heat. Meanwhile, unlike coil units, ceramic heaters are much less prone to starting an electric fire. Besides, their housing stays cool during operation that, along with an excellent overheat protection, makes ceramic electric heaters a safe choice even for nurseries and playrooms.
Q: Can I use a ceramic heater as the main source of heat?
A: Like any other portable heaters, ceramic units are not intended to replace the primary heating source. Designed for supplemental use, ceramic heaters will hardly be sufficient to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature in the entire household. They are most effective for targeted spot heating or taking the chill away in a single room.
Q: Can I use a ceramic heater in the bathroom?
A: Normally, fan heaters, including ceramic ones, are not recommended for use in wet or damp locations and you’d better refrain from putting them in the bathroom. However, ceramic heaters are known to dry and even overdry the air when used for long periods of time. Hence, if the humidity level in your bathroom is too high, you can put a ceramic heater there for some time, keeping it at a distance from running water. Yet, do not leave it there when taking a shower or bath.
Q: Are there any precautions to be taken before using a ceramic heater?
A: Basic precautions include checking the appliance and power cord for any damages, making sure that the mains voltage aligns with that of the unit, keeping the heater away from inflammable objects and water, and out from the reach of unattended children. Besides, never cover the heater during operation, always let it cool before tucking it away for storage, and store it in a dry place.
