Winter months bring with them chilly mornings and cold nights. The source of heat is important in these times, especially one you can count on to warm up a living room quickly and offer features to optimize the value of used energy.
Lasko offers such heaters in both great style and functionality. Although rather than looking at the entire catalog we are looking at two specific models. Namely, these are Lasko 6405 vs 6435. The following article will cover their strengths, weaknesses, similarities, and differences as a way of providing a purchasing suggestion for you.
There are three heat settings on offer across models. The first one is high, providing maximum heating for when you need a fast burst of heat to cozy up your room. The second is low, for slow and less energy-intensive heating that you may utilize when the temperature needs to be tweaked slightly. The last one is auto thermostat mode. This mode will adjust heat accordingly without any manual input being required.
You can adjust the timer on these heaters for up to 7 hours, once the timer runs out the heater turns off. The perfect option for those who are prone to cold and wish to leave their heater on for an hour or so after they go to bed. It is also nice to know you needn’t worry about turning it off while still keeping it operational.
LED Presented Settings
With easy-to-read LED temperature settings, you will have no issues when adjusting settings for your heater.
The heaters possess overheat protection, preventing dangerous malfunction of the device. It self-regulates itself with the ceramic element and it has a cool-touch housing. What this means is that you won’t accidentally burn yourself on it when switching up settings.
Models provide a selection of temperatures between 60 F and 85 F. The control panel on top of the heater allows you to select different temperatures in increments of 5, or just press max for maximum heat.
The heaters have great stability with their stand. Their four-legged stands make sure it’s safe from falling over no matter what side it is bumped into. Lasko 6405 and Lasko 6435 models will also continue to work even if somehow tipped over and with their safety features, this poses no potential dangers while still maintaining functionality.
Heaters provide the option of turning oscillation on. In this mode, it will spread the heat around the room, rather than act as a stagnant source of heat.

Additionally, you can adjust the timer through the remote controller as well or increase and decrease the heat in increments by 5.
