What exactly is a “Red Tag”? What Does It All Mean?
In Ontario, gaseous fuels such as natural gas are governed by the Technical Standards and Safety Act and its Regulations. These standards must be followed by certified, licensed gas technicians, such as those employed by service companies such as CasiAppliance. In some cases, this regulation will require a gasfitter to fill out a red tag.
So, what exactly is a red tag?
Warning tags, also known as red tags, indicate that: a gas-powered appliance is in “unacceptable condition”; and the person responsible for that appliance (whether the owner, property manager or another occupant or landlord) must take action to find the gas leakage and repair the appliances.
Depending on the severity of the problem, the technician may also be required by law to turn off the gas supply to the appliance. Not only furnaces, but any gas-powered machine, including boilers, water heaters, and gas dryer units, can be red-tagged.
