REMOVE YOUR RED TAG
Why Has Your Gas Furnace, Boiler or Fireplace Been “Red Tagged”?
If a licensed gas technician sees a furnace, boiler, fireplace, hot water tank or other gas appliance he deems unsafe or potentially unsafe he is required by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (T.S.S.A.) to “red tag” the appliance.
The reason for the tag could be with the appliance itself, the venting (chimney), the gas piping or the electrical wiring. Anything that is deemed unsafe or dangerous or potentially so is a valid reason for the tag. Thus any part of the system which contravenes the gas code can be cause for a red tag.
There are two different types of red tag that can be issued:
If the utility is not notified of completion within the required time they will start procedures to shut off and lock the gas metre.
Unfortunately it is not unheard of for unscrupulous operators to red tag a furnace in order to try to sell you a new one.
