A Red Tag or a Warning Tag just means that a TSSA certified and licensed gas fitter has determined that your equipment in its current condition is unsafe to use. The most common reason why a hot water tank or furnace is given a Red Tag is due to improper installation or a venting-related problem where carbon monoxide might leak into your house which can cause potentially life-threatening situations.
Be aware that a licensed gas fitter is not punishing you and doesn’t hold a grudge against you – in fact, licensed gas fitters are all required by law to tag any gas-powered equipment that they deem to be hazardous or unsafe to operate. Failing to address these types of issues on gas-powered equipment, if it has been found to be faulty, could result in loss of employment and their license, imprisonment, and / or serious fines. So, in other words, they are just doing their job and do not have a choice.
Our company can send out a licensed gas fitter who will assess your problem, give you a written quote for resolving the problems, and then if you accept our quote that can immediately start on repairs to your equipment to bring it back to safe operating condition (or, if necessary, replace it) so that you can stop stressing out about the issue and return to enjoying your life.
After our company has resolved the issues, we will remove the Red Tag or Warning Tag from Enbridge Gas and all of the documentation will be taken to our office. We will then notify Enbridge Gas that the problems have been resolve and that the equipment is in safe working condition now. We will also give them our license numbers and if they have turned your gas off already, we will have them turn it back on.
We will handle everything for you, so you will not need to do anything.
If a Warning Tag is issued to you, we strongly recommend that you don’t wait to try getting the problem resolved since repairs may take extra time to complete (for example, specially ordered materials or parts may delay completion). Our trucks are, of course, well-stocked with a majority of needed standard materials and we will do everything possible to ensure that your issues can be resolved fast.
If you do not resolve a Warning Tag (Type B), Enbridge Gas will have your gas turned off to your house for failing to comply with their requirements. Once your gas is turned off, it can take some time to get it turned on again, so it is best to resolve the problem without the provided warning period.
