Comments Off

Venmar Ventilation Inc., working in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), issued a voluntary recall of Air Exchangers, because the units can overheat, posing a fire hazard.

To this date, no incidents have been reported in the U.S. in connection with this recall. However, the company has received nine reports of overheating which have resulted in fires and property damage outside the U.S.

The air exchangers affected by this recall were sold under several different brands. They are used to circulate air in and out of the home. Units manufactured with the model numbers listed below are included in this recall.
