WARNING: DO YOU HAVE A CANNON FITZROY OR CANNON CANTERBURY INBUILT GAS HEATER?
Energy Safe Victoria has advised that Cannon has reissued a safety notice for Fitzroy and Canterbury inbuilt gas heaters.
Gas heater manufacturer Cannon reissued its safety notice on Saturday urging home owners with Cannon Fitzroy or Canterbury inbuilt gas heaters manufactured between 20 March 2001 and 8 October 2009 to have them checked for carbon monoxide spillage.
The company will be meeting the cost of the safety checks, and also providing compensation of up to $150 for heater owners who had their heaters checked following the initial safety notice that was issued in June last year.
The notice was issued after laboratory testing showed it was possible these heaters could produce potentially hazardous levels of carbon monoxide if they were subjected to certain conditions, including the operation of rangehoods and other exhaust fans in the home.
If there is a fault attributable to the manufacture of the heater itself (as opposed to the way it is installed), Cannon will cover the cost of rectifying the heater. Customers who had heaters rectified following last year’s notice should contact Cannon to discuss reimbursement of their costs.
