13,000 Tankless Water Heaters Recalled

Carbon monoxide poisoning threat prompts recall of certain tankless water heaters.

Added to Binder

Even though tankless water heaters are a great way to save on water and energy costs, it appears some models are not without problems.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a voluntary recall of about 13,000 Navien instantaneous or tankless water heaters, manufactured by a South Korean company. The water heaters contain an unstable connection that can cause the water heater’s vent collar to detach and cause carbon monoxide poisoning.

The water heaters are white with “T-Creator” and “NAVIEN” on the front.

To get further information about model numbers and actions to take, visit the CPSC site, or call Navien at (800) 244-8202.

And while we’re talking about ways your home can kill you, every home should have a carbon monoxide alarm outside sleeping areas.

Have you switched to a tankless water heater? How has it worked out for you?
