Many popular heat pump models recalled due to overheating risk

Several major brands have recalled certain heat pump models in Canada because they can switch from air conditioning to heating mode following a power interruption.

The recall affects Daikin, Amana and Goodman brands.

Health Canada is concerned that in some circumstances homes could become overheated and potentially cause harm to people. There have been no reports of injury, either in Canada or in the United States, where the units have also been recalled.

A corrective update is available for the heat pumps. Any unit that has not received the update should be turned off unless there is an immediate need for air conditioning, Health Canada said in the recall notice.

The notice also includes a list of models included in the recall. More than 5,500 of the units were sold in Canada between May 2022 and April 2024.

Consumers should talk to the company about getting the update installed. Daikin Comfort Technologies can be reached by telephone at 1-855-545-0235 or through the company website.
