Common Heaters And Heating Units
Some of the most common heaters and heating units at the center of product liability claims are:
- Space heaters
- Home heating / furnace systems
- Water heaters
- Vehicle heaters
- Portable heaters (ex. outdoor or garage heaters)
While not every fire or burn caused by one of these heaters is because that heater was defective, in some cases, the product manufacturer is responsible. Heaters are frequently recalled due to reported injuries.
