Product Safety Upgrade Program

Jun 19 2008

Saskatoon, SK (June 19, 2008) – It has come to the attention of Venmar CES that an unlikely series of circumstances could lead to a motor overheating in specific Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) Light Commercial models that may result in a potential fire hazard. These units fully comply with all UL and CSA standards. They are already safeguarded by circuit protection under the National Electric Code and by thermal protectors in the motors. Venmar CES will arrange for a qualified field technician to upgrade the units at no charge for the customer.

The Product Safety Upgrade Program is a preventive measure that Venmar CES takes today to ensure that all of its customers have total peace of mind regarding their product safety.

Only specific Light Commercial models produced between 1991 and 2007 are affected by this Product Safety Upgrade Program.
