About This Item


Full Description

Is an HVAC contractor legally responsible for damage caused when a product (such as a condensate pump) fails due to a manufacturing defect? Generally, the answer is “yes.” Even though the installer committed no error in selecting or installing the product, the law in most states imposes liability not only on the manufacturer of the defective product, but on each participant in the supply chain.
