Red Tag Warnings: What They Are & What to Do About ThemPosted by October 17th, 2018
You’ve heard horror stories about red tag warnings, but what do they really mean for your home or business, and how can our team at Cynergy Mechanical Ltd. help? Here are a few things you should know.
Your Appliance has Been Red Tagged. Now What?
Red tag warnings are issued when a gas appliance is deemed as unsafe by a licensed technician. Sometimes these appliances just need repair, but more often than not they need to be replaced. Your next steps depend on the type of tag issued.
- Type A: Not Just a Personality Problem — If you have been issued a type A red tag warning, your appliance is putting you in immediate danger, most often in the form of a carbon monoxide leak. This warning means the gas to your building will be turned off instantly to prevent further risks or harm to you and those you work with.
- Type B: Take Action Now — This red tag warning gives you a specified timeframe to either fix or repair the appliance, and means you are not in immediate danger. Your gas company will be notified and if the problem is not fixed in the given timeframe, your gas will be turned off.
Dealing with natural gas requires special care and attention. No matter the type of red tag warnings you’ve been issued, our professional team at Cynergy Mechanical Ltd. can help. Call us today so we can help you discuss the steps needed to restore function to your equipment– and peace of mind!
