Lasko 2554 vs 2551 vs 2511: Tower Fan Comparison
There’s nothing worse than the sweltering heat of a summer day. There are several devices that we can use to combat the heat, but one of the most effective ones is the tower fan. This machine circulates the air around your room while imbuing it with a cool, pleasant breeze to help combat the sweat-inducing midday that the “lovely” summer season brings. The best part about tower fans is that they use much less energy compared to air conditioners.
In this article, we’re going to take a look at three of Lasko’s best tower fan models – the Lasko 2554, the Lasko 2551, and the Lasko 2511 Tower Fan. In all honesty, there are more similarities between the three than there are differences. Although their differences are few, they still make a difference in overall performance and appearance. With all that said, let’s jump straight into our comparison.
2554 and 2551
An air ionizer aims to negate the odors and feeling of the indoors by blasting millions upon millions of negatively-charged ions into the air. This is supposed to simulate the smell and feeling of being outdoors. Both the 2554 and the 2551 come with air ionizers to add a sense of fresh air inside of our homes.
Unfortunately, the 2511 isn’t built with an air ionizer. This, however, doesn’t mean that the 2511 is a bad model, but rather it’s not designed to give users a feeling of being in the great outdoors while comfortably lounging on their couches.
Conclusion: It’s clear that the Lasko 2511 is blown out of the water in the air ionizer battle. This feature serves to purify the air by trapping and eliminating airborne particles and odors. It’s not a deal-breaker, but it’s something worth considering, especially if you live with pets and rarely vacuum your carpets and floors.
Three Super-Quiet Speeds Settings
2554, 2551, and 2511
Like most fans, tower fans come with different speed settings that produce stronger or weaker gusts of cool air. The three Lasko models in this article feature three different speed settings to help combat the scorching heat. The best thing about these speed settings is that no matter which one is active, you’ll hardly notice the unit’s buzzing until you accidentally bump into the fan.
Even on their high-speed settings, their noise levels are less than 50 decibels. If you need a fan at home but don’t want a unit that produces louder sounds than your TV or computer, then any of these three Lasko models will suit you just fine.
2554 and 2551
Tower fans are designed to be thin and tall, hence the name “tower.” We generally want to place fans or air conditioners higher up since cold air floats down while warm air floats up. Theoretically speaking, a 42-inch fan would be much more effective at cooling a room than a 36-inch model. The 2554 and 2551 both stand 42 inches tall, and they hardly take any floor space.
The 36-inch tall model we mentioned above is the 2511. The 6-inch difference between the two isn’t too significant, and it’s nothing that placing the unit on top of an end table can’t solve. However, even standing at 36 inches, it’s still rather tall and will provide proper cooling throughout your room.
Conclusion: In the grand scheme of things, the 6-inch disparity between the 2511 and the other two models won’t make a huge difference in electricity costs or performance. We suggest picking the model that blends in well with your home’s interior design.
One significant difference between these three models is their appearance. The Lasko 2554 comes with with a woodgrain design surrounding the vents that delivers cooling blasts of wind. Although it’s a beautiful design, it’s probably won’t blend in well with the interior designs of many homes.
The Lasko 2551 is built similarly to the 2554, but it’s made of pure plastic with a silver coating of paint. Compared to the Lasko 2554, this design is much more neutral and won’t clash horribly with many living room color schemes. However, in our opinion, it’s a rather boring look that’s made to blend in with the interior of many homes.
The Lasko 2511 is also made of pure plastic, but the vents are painted silver, and the body surrounding them is coated black. The silver-on-black design is also somewhat neutral, but it also adds a dimension of style that fits with the schemes of many modern homes. This is perhaps the “futuristic” look that many home appliance manufacturers aim to create.
Conclusion: Since this is purely based on our opinion, there’s no real way to determine which of these three designs is best. There’s no blanket solution for matching with the interior design of every home on the planet, so it’s up to the customer to decide which color suits their homes best.
2554, 2551, and 2511
Tower fans are the futuristic version of the traditional pedestal and wall-mounted fans. One such feature they have that you won’t find in the classics is control from a distance. One of the most annoying things in life is having to get up to adjust the speed and swing of the fan when you’re comfortably sitting or laying down.
With these Lasko tower fan models, with their remote controls, using the model is possible without having to touch the machine. Using the remote control, you have control over the speeds and schedules of the fan. They also come with convenient storage spaces to keep the remote controls away from harm’s way (e.g., pets and curious toddlers).
Lasko 2554 vs 2551 vs 2511: Conclusion
Tower fans are great appliances for keeping the inside of our homes cool during hot summer months. As we mentioned before, there are more overlapping specs between the three models than there are differences. The only significant difference that affects performance is the air ionizer which is missing in the 36-inch 2511 model>.
The one area where the Lasko 2511 Tower Fan reigns supreme is the modern design which blends well with almost any design and color scheme, but this is just personal preference. In conclusion, these Lasko-made tower fans work exceptionally well at keeping summer’s heat out of your home. You can’t really go wrong in choosing any of these three models.
