BEWARE FIRE HAZARD

By 

from Warren, MI

Comments about Lakewood Oil Filled Heater:

I have had one of these type heaters for approximately 5 years.  My furnace went out last night, so I rolled it in my bedroom and plugged it up for the night.  Well the next morning I awoke to find that the heater had caught fire at the outlet.  Please be careful with these heaters and do not leave unattended or go to sleep with one running.  I was fortunate to wake up when I did, and actual flames (not sparks), were shooting from the outlet and burned about three and a half inches up the wall.  One half of the plug completely burned up and had to be removed from the outlet.  I will never use one of these heaters again.  I also found out that the thing to have now is something called an arc fault thingy that is to prevent these types of fires from occurring.  Needless to say, I am very lucky to be alive right now.

Slow, but good!

By 

from Carmichael, CA

Comments about Lakewood Oil Filled Heater:

I bought this heater last year, so this is the second year I'm using it.  It heats up slow, but works very well - keeps the livingroom, dining room & hall nice and warm.  It has two switches - 600 watt and 900 watt, so you have three settings:  up to 1500 watts.  I have a 2 year old grandson that lives with me, so I don't feel totally safe with him playing around it, so I feel that I must watch him around it at all times.

decent heater for small room

By 

from Pinconning, MI

Comments about Lakewood Oil Filled Heater:

this heater is nice but the plug gets hot on it if you use both the 900 watt and 600 watt setting at the same time it caused us to have an outlet fire.  It works great to heat a small room on a high setting for a little while but don't leave it plugged in to long

keeps me warm and toasty

By 

from Clio, MI

Comments about Lakewood Oil Filled Heater:

 The Lakewood oil space heater is a very energy efficient heater.   My house used to be so  cold in the winter that I would have to wrap up in a blanket.   Not anymore.  Plus, I save on my enery bills.   I just love my space heater.   It keeps my whole house warm in the winter.   I can turn down my thermostat and still stay warm.  It doesnt take long for the oil to heat up so I get instant heat.   My cat loves it also.   She sits right there by the heater all night.    I can turn off the heater and it stays warm for a few hours after.  It was the best investment that I have made.   If you have a drafty house, this will work wonders for you.   It doesnt break your wallet either.   My son saw mine and he went out and bought himself one.   The space heaters are safe to use and you do not have to worry about them.   I highly recommend the Lakewood oil space heater to anyone with a drafty, cold house.

Be afraid

By 

from Lorain, OH

Comments about Lakewood Oil Filled Heater:

Lakewood Oil Filled heater.

I bought two of these heaters to help offset the rising cost of propane.  They worked well for a little while then started to trip breakers in my home.  One of the heaters started to smoke.  Fortunately I was in the room at the time and was able to get it unplugged and outside.  I dread the thought of what would have happened had I not been in the room.

This is a great small space heater.

By 

from Asheville, NC

Comments about Lakewood Oil Filled Heater:

I purchased this heater in hopes that it would lower my heating bill.  My home is heated entirely by electric and it's expensive.  With this heater, I can turn down the heat in the rest of the house and rely just on it for heat near me.  It's compact and doesn't take up a lot of space.  I can set it up higher at first and then lower later in the night after I've warmed up, and it's safe.  There's no danger of fumes or it catching on fire.  I'd recommend it to anyone.

warm & cozy with ease

By 

from Long Beach, CA

Comments about Lakewood Oil Filled Heater:

**our Hardware store carries & recommends this brand - it worth every penny.  the instructions are easy to follow....no need to refill the oil its sealed in the unit - the ease of use is great for anyone. especially the elderly & people with special needs or if you suddenly lose your heaters/radiators/forced heat to a storm or malfunction - it can replace the heat quickly - plus it has a thermostat built in to conserve energy - the rollers make it easy to move & store.  safety is first - like all heaters placing it near curtains, bedding or flammables can cause a fire - not matter how safe the unit is & never leave a baby or small children unattended - when using this product it could possibly fall on them, especially if children & / or pets knock it over it may damage the unit &/or cause injury.... we bought one for my 88 year old aunt & she used it faithfully for years:)**

Best heater for the value

By 

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Lakewood Oil Filled Heater:

The Lakewood oil filled heater is one of the best on the market. It has multiple heat settings, 600watts up to1600watts, plus a dial to select the temps. I own 2 of these and have used one at each end of the house, because I never turn the furnace on before Thanksgiving.

They keep my 4 bedroom home to a toasty 65 degrees. Even when outside temps dip down into the lower 20's at night and daytime highs are in the low 40's. As with all space heaters, read the instructions and never leave them unattended.
