Defective Oil Burner Dangers

Defective Oil Burner DangersEvery year Fire departments across the country respond to oil burner emergencies. A major oil burner danger is known as “flashback” or “flare-up”. In one example of this, the oil burner is located in an attached garage. The homeowner starts a lawnmower in the garage and the gas vapors from the mower mix with vapors from the oil burner and travel to the oil burner resulting in an explosion. This can have catastrophic results.

If this has happened to you or a loved one you need a nationally recognized, trial experienced personal injury law firm to fight for you. Please contact Cellino & Barnes immediately.

Defective Oil burners can cause serious personal injury or death from fire, explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning.

Most of these incidents coincide with the onset of cold weather as oil burners are fired up. While many of these emergencies are minor they can escalate into full structural fires, explosions or deadly carbon monoxide leaks.

Another common oil burner danger is known as “delayed ignition” or “puff-back”. This event occurs when excess atomized oil builds up in the combustion chamber resulting in an explosion when ignited. That explosion will, in turn, lead to either a structural failure or allow the furnace door to open.

The delayed ignition event is one of several dangerous and potentially deadly oil burner hazards. Oil burner fires can quickly turn into a structural fire, explosion, or allow deadly carbon monoxide gas to fill the burner room, basement or entire structure.
