Lasko heaters are portable electric heaters meant for home use. The heaters are designed to heat small spaces like individual rooms or apartments at one time and require at least 12.5 amps of power for proper use. Other requirements for proper use include regular cleaning of the heater to remove dirt and dust that may obstruct air flow and could even pose a fire hazard. Cleaning the Lasko heater on a regular basis can help maintain proper function of the heater.


Step 1

Disconnect the Lasko heater from the power outlet. Wait for the heater to cool fully before proceeding.
