Air Conditioning (AC) Units Defective Evaporator Coils Class Action
ON Sep 23, 2015 [en]
Statement of Claim
CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Lennox [Carrier, Rheem, Goodman, Amana, and other manufacturers being investigated] for their defective air conditioning (AC) units which are susceptible to formicary corrosion or rust as a result of the deficient materials used in the manufacture of its copper evaporator coils. These manufacturers failed to inform customers of the defect even when they were called to replace failed coils in existing units which is also the subject of this litigation.
The class action lawsuit alleges that the air conditioning unit copper evaporator coils are defective because they are manufactured with materials that are well known to be prone to formicary corrosion or rust within the industry, which makes the coils unreasonably susceptible to premature rupture and refrigerant leaks under normal use and conditions.
The leakage is difficult to detect and usually results in consumers being forced to repeatedly refill their air conditioners with Freon, often at significant cost, which only works to mask the defect for a period of time, until the leak is detected and the coil needs to be replaced.
Despite the fact that the evaporator coils in the units malfunction at a rate that far exceeds the industry average, these manufacturers falsely and deceptively represented, and continue to falsely and deceptively represent, that the air conditioning units are reliable, durable, dependable, long-lasting, and that their manufacturing processes and the quality of their indoor comfort products either meet or exceed the highest standards in the heating and cooling industry.
If you or someone you know has purchased an air conditioning unit manufactured by Lennox, Carrier, Rheem, Goodman or Amana, from anywhere in Canada, Quebec or Ontario, and you wish more information on potential compensation or to be kept advised of the status of the Defective Air Conditioning Unit Class Action litigation or any resulting compensation from the Defective Air Conditioning Unit Lawsuit in Canada, Quebec or Ontario, please provide your contact information to our law firm using the form below.
