  • All text and symbols should be clear, simple and easy to see and read.
  • Labels should be large.
  • All dials should be easy and simple to operate, possibly with a large crossbar that’s easy to grip.
  • It should be easy to operate the heater with one hand.
  • You shouldn’t have to lift larger heaters to move them — look for wheels.
  • The heater shouldn’t have any sharp edges.
