What is a Red Tag Label?

One of the most frustrating things to do is when you go into your kitchen and see that dreaded red tag on your appliance. You don’t know what it means or how to get rid of it, but at Home Saving Inc. we’re here to help! 

The red tag usually means that there’s a gas leak in your home and it needs to be replaced. We’ll walk you through all the steps needed so you can have peace of mind in knowing that when you turn on this stove again, nothing will happen!

Red Tag warnings are a new safety precaution for homes and businesses alike. They’re issued when an unsafe gas appliance is found, which could lead to carbon monoxide leaks or CO2 exposure! Here at Home Saving Inc, we can help you replace the issue and make sure you and your family stay safe and sound.

What are the Two Types of Red Tags?

The severity of this issue varies depending on what type it falls into, there are two different potential types of red tag labels.

  1. Type A indicates more severe problems. These issues will require immediate action. The gas company will shut off gas due to a severe immediate threat. You will be required to replace the damaged appliance to restore gas.
  2. Type B stands for less serious conditions. These issues are usually unseen and very difficult to detect without experts on hand. For these less immediate issues, you will be given a 30 day period to replace the appliance. If you are not able to replace the appliance in 30 days further action will be taken by the gas company. 

Both of these different types will require assistance from a professionally trained and certified HVAC company. To pass the follow-up inspection the work must be completed by a certified technician.

What Does That Mean for You?

These tags come with instructions from your utility provider about how long you need repair work done before they’ll remove them so make sure you don’t wait too long if you want peace of mind knowing everything’s been taken care of as quickly as possible.
