What is Red Tag?
In the event that you’ve got a furnace or any other gas appliance that has gotten a Red tag, the key thing to keep in mind is that a Red tag means that your appliance is hazardous to use. This means you would either need to have it repaired so it can be used, or it has to be totally removed and replaced.
If a technician comes across a furnace or water heater that needs a red tag, they have no choice but to…
The law specifies that a Red tag must be placed on your Gas Appliance on the off chance that it may be a threat to you, your family, your household, your neighbors, your tenants, or your occupants. The gas should be turned off as soon as possible.
To survive winter in Ontario, gas furnaces and boilers must be properly maintained.
The following two hazards can also occur :-
Fire or Blast
Under pressure, natural gas can burn and explode like a fossil fuel. With yearly maintenance, a gas furnace or boiler is exceptionally safe. According to Ontario law, all homes must have a carbon monoxide detector display in order to be safe. However, if a homeowner fails to maintain their gas appliances, the Red Tag Program will help.
This is the most genuine type of red tag. It means that your Boiler/Furnace/Water Heater poses a real threat to you, your family, your visitors, and anyone else inside your home. Carbon monoxide spills are generally recognized and your gas supplier is called to turn off the gas immediately.
This sort of red tag may be a caution tag. Simply means it still has gas, but time is running out. You must make repairs to your Gas Appliance within the specified time period, or the gas will be shut off permanently.
