Announcing partnerships with CULER Inc. and Austin Air and the launch of two new MADE IN THE USA product lines, space coolers and air purifiers
PLANO, TX, April 30, 2015 – Lifesmart is launching new lines of Space Cooling and Air Cleaning products at the National Hardware Show to further bolster its position as “The Smart Choice for Home Comfort”.
The company has partnered with Nashville, Tennessee based CULER, Inc to launch an innovative new line of space coolers to complement its core business in space heaters. Space coolers are a new concept in portable cooling products that offer an effective and fully portable cooling solution for both indoor and outdoor applications. These products are powered by innovative and patented CULER atomization technology which delivers impressive cooling power in a convenient, environmentally friendly, and safe package. Lifesmart will begin offering these products via its on-line and TV shopping retail partners in the summer of 2015, and plans to launch in leading retail stores in the Spring of 2016.
Lifesmart has also partnered with Austin Air of Buffalo, New York to anchor its new line of air cleaning products. Austin Air’s medical grade air cleaning products have consistently been rated among the best overall performing air cleaners in the world in independent tests, and Lifesmart is proud to anchor its new air cleaner line with an exclusive unit manufactured by Austin Air.
“These new relationships are with established companies that add to our quality and innovation story within the Lifesmart brand, not to mention that these new relationships will produce products MADE IN THE USA which we are proud to help support and grow,” said Mike Dolder, President of Lifesmart.
Lifesmart, which is based in Plano, Texas, has enjoyed strong growth year over year across its core categories of heaters, fireplaces, spas and saunas. 2014 was another record sales year for the company, driven by the growth of its heater and spa business. “The year far exceeded our expectations, especially considering the sale and transition of the company just two years the ago” said Dolder. “We are really looking forward to the Hardware Show where we intend to extend the brand with these new products and additions to our current Infrared Sauna line,” said Dolder.

RECALL NOTICE: LIFEPRO INFRARED HEATERS (LS-IQH-DMICRO AND LS-IQH- MICRO)
November 18, 2014
Dear Valued Customer:
At Lifesmart we value the safety and satisfaction of our customers. It is our company’s top priority to produce a safe, reliable and safe product. We understand that you recently you purchased a lifepro LS-IQH-DMICRO or LS-IQH-MICRO infrared heater through one of our on-line retailers. Although we have not received any reports or incidents or injury, we are voluntarily recalling the units manufactured between May 2014 and October 2014, due to a potential safety issue.
It has come to our attention that the screws used to secure the back plastic plate to the main body of the heater may be too short, which in some cases can cause the main body of the heater to detach from the back plate. If the consumer were to grab the exposed wires while trying to remove the heater from the wall receptacle, the user might receive an electrical shock. If the back plate separates from the main body of the heater while removing the heater from the wall receptacle, the user should immediately turn off the power switch located on the side of the heater. Then carefully pull the back plate from the wall receptacle by securely holding on to the plastic only. Do not use the heater.
To ensure the safety of our customers and the safe operation of the LS-IQH-DMICRO and LS-IQH-MICRO heater, the manufacturer’s engineers have determined that replacing the four existing screws with longer screws will resolve this issue.
ACTION REQUIRED: We are asking you the customer to allow us to Repair, Replace or Refund your heater. Its imperative that you to choose one of the following options:
1. Repair: For your convenience we have enclosed four longer screws with instructions on how to quickly repair your heater. You can also visit our website at www.lifesmartproducts.com for further information including a repair video.
2. Replace: You may contact a dedicated Lifesmart customer service specialist at 972-769-7253 ext. 106 for a replacement heater. We will provide you with a shipping label in order to return your unit to us. Once received, we will ship a new unit with the modified screws to you.
3. Refund: You may contact a dedicated Lifesmart customer service specialist at 972-769-7253 ext. 106 for a full refund. To receive the refund, you must return your heater using the shipping label we will provide to you.
Again, our customer’s safety and satisfaction is our number one concern. We encourage you to contact us for assistance or any questions.
