April 10, 2007: NY Thermal Recalls Boilers Due to Carbon Monoxide Hazard

April 10, 2007

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with NY Thermal Inc. of Sussex, New Brunswick, has announced a voluntary recall of the company’s NTI Trinity gas-fired hot water boilers.

Acidic liquid in a drain line can cause a fitting in the boiler to leak, posing a risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning to consumers. NY Thermal has received one report of a leaking fitting resulting in a CO alarm activation. No injuries have been reported.

The recall covers about 4,800 units. It includes NTI Trinity gas-fired hot water boilers with model numbers Ti100, Ti150, Ti200, and Ti400. The boilers were manufactured between Nov. 28, 2005 and Jan. 8, 2007. The Ti100, Ti150, and Ti200 are wall-mounted units, and the Ti400 rests on the floor. The boilers are gray in color and “NTI” appears on the front cover. The model number and date of manufacture are located on the ID label inside the front cover of the boiler.

The units were sold by plumbing and heating contractors nationwide from November 2005 through February 2007.

Consumers should immediately contact the firm to arrange for a free repair. For more information, contact NY Thermal at 800-688-2575 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the company’s Website at www.nythermal.com.
