Red tag warning removal repair services Oakville Ontario.
What is a red tagged appliance ( Furnace, fireplace, gas piping, stove etc) warning in Oakville?
Sometimes an Oakville gas supply company (Enbridge ) or a HVAC contractor or a licensed gas service
technician finds heating equipment in such bad shape, and un
safe to use that they are obligated to "red-tag" the furnace
or water heater, fireplace etc and shut it down imediately. This means
that the gas appliances pose an immediate danger to your life or property. A
red tag, or Enbridge warning tag, TSSA etc, is placed on a gas furnace
to indicate that your heating equipment is no longer safe to
operate and either needs to be repaired or replaced ASAP.
A licensed TSSA HVAC gas technician who identifies a warning tag
situation is required by the law to turn off your gas as a safety
measure to protect the residents of your home or business.
Why have I received a warning tag?
Typical problems that I've seen red-tagged are a vandalized
furnace in a foreclosure, severely corroded furnace
components, or the improper use of flexible gas supply lines.
Sometimes a homeowner fixes their own furnace using materials
not approved for gas appliance installation.
A red tag violation is not something to take lightly. A
defective heat exchanger for example in a furnace can release
(carbon monoxide) , an odourless and colourless gas that can
cause serious health problems, even death, if undetected. In
Canada, carbon monoxide is the leading cause of death by
poisoning. If carbon monoxide is leaking from a cracked heat
exchanger, there is a chance of it mixing with the air
circulated by the furnace and pushed throughout the air vents
causing a danger to everyone inside the home.
What should I do if I receive a red tag warning tag ?
If you receive a warning tag from Enbrdge, you should
immediately call a licensed and insured HVAC contractor in
your area. In some cases, a furnace can repaired. In more
serious cases, the heating equipment needs to be replaced.
