Gas Safety Alert Vulcan Heritage and Pyrox Heritage heaters
The Victorian Government has issued a safety alert
for Vulcan Heritage and Pyrox Heritage gas heaters. Tests have shown that these brands can produce too much carbon monoxide, particularly if used in conjunction with exhaust fans and rangehoods. Landlords with rental properties and tenants featuring these heaters should stop using these heaters until it has been tested by a qualified gasfitter, and organise for a qualified gasfitter to test the heater. The manufacturer Climate Technologies can arrange for a test and will pay $150 towards the cost of inspection. If the carbon monoxide problem is present, they will discount the cost of a replacement.
