Lakewood Heaters: Put a Little Warmth in Your Life

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Efficient, low risk of fire, cost-effective

Cons:Risk of being burned if you touch it.

The Bottom Line: Lakewood Oil Filled heaters are a great way to heat individual rooms.


I have several methods of heating in my home; an oil furnace in the main part of the house, a fireplace with an insert in the living room, a pellet stove in the family room, and wall heaters in two of the bedrooms. My house is a bit odd; the main part of the house is essentially heated by the oil furnace, and the second floor receives no direct heat. Heat must rise up from the main floor through the stairwell.

This creates a chilly environment for the children who have bedrooms up there, and I don't like my children being cold. By the same token, I have always been afraid of space heaters. I guess I have heard too many horror stories of fires being caused by space heaters to be willing to put one in my children's bedrooms.

Still, we needed some sort of heat in those rooms during the cold, winter months. I was at Wal-Mart and I saw the Lakewood oil filled radiator. I was intrigued. I remembered owning one of these years ago, and I had liked the safety features. First of all, there is no glowing panel of redness anywhere on this heater. It looks just like an old-fashioned radiator.

It is an "oil-filled" heater, but it does not have to be refilled. Basically it is an electric space heater, but one with a great deal more safety than the standard space heaters with the glowing red coils.

I purchased two of them and set them up in bedrooms, instructing the children that they were to make sure nothing got too close to the heater. It does carry a risk of being burned as the heater gets hot when it is in use, so children should be cautioned to be very careful. I would not put this heater in a very small child's bedroom because of the risk of he or she burning him or herself.

If the heater is accidentally knocked over it will turn itself off automatically, another safety feature I am very pleased with. There are three heat settings, enabling a person to create a comfortable environment based on the current room temperature.

I find that these heaters work quite well despite their relatively small size. And I have not noticed a significant increase in my electric bill since we started using them, which leads me to feel the heaters are quite economical to run.

The Lakewood heater will not be able to significantly heat a very large room, but it works exceptionally well in a medium-sized bedroom. I am very happy with the product, and highly recommend Lakewood heaters if you are looking for this type of product.

The heaters can always be found on sale for just under $50.00, which is more expensive than many of the other types of space heaters. I personally find that the extra money is worth it considering the added safety features this heater has.
