On December 3rd, the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall for Crown Boiler home heating boilers. In the event of a blockage in the vent system, the air pressure switch on the gas-fired hot water boilers can fail allowing the hot water boiler to emit an excessive amount of carbon monoxide presenting a risk of poisoning. The Consumer Product Safety Commission provides a list of all models affected by the recall. If you own one of the recalled hot water boilers, you should immediately contact the retailer or the manufacturer for a free repair. While you wait for the repair to be performed, be sure to install a working carbon monoxide detector in your home.
