What Is A Red Tag?

red tag

If you’ve ever received a red tag on one of your commercial HVAC appliances in the past then you know what a big deal they are. Red tags aren’t something that should be ignored and need to be taken care of immediately, or you will be putting your building, your tenants and the viability of your business at risk.

Red tags are placed on commercial gas appliances by licensed commercial HVAC technicians. If an “A” red tag is the type placed on your commercial gas appliance then the technician may be required by law to disable your appliance until further action is taken to repair or replace it.

Is There More Than One Type Of Red Tag?

An “A” red tag means that there is an immediate threat to the safety of the building, the tenants and the commercial HVAC systems. These tags are typically placed on commercial gas appliances, which is why they are so critical to address. If the danger is severe they can lead to the gas being turned off in the building altogether.

“B” red tags are placed on appliances and commercial gas systems that are unsafe and in need of immediate repair or replacement. Time periods are often attached to these tags, which indicate how quickly action must be taken in order to resolve the issues. If action isn’t taken the utilities can be turned off for the entire building until repairs happen or replacement appliances are installed.

Why Do I Have A Red Tag?

Red Tags are placed on the appliances or piping systems in your home or building that use natural gas. It takes a licensed and experienced commercial HVAC gas technician to identify a hazardous situation in order for a Red Tag to be issued.

One common example of the need to issue a Red Tag is if an appliance is releasing carbon monoxide into the air. Carbon monoxide is a dangerous gas that has no colour, taste or small. It has the ability to cause serious health problems and even death if it goes undetected.
