What is a “red tag repair”? In the world of construction and maintenance it means that the equipment in question is unsafe. It is also known as a product warning tag. It may be placed on a gas appliance by a licensed technician to indicate that it is no longer safe to operate and either needs to be repaired or replaced.
A red tag means do not touch unless you are trained in these type of repairs. Warning tags are issued on any appliance or perhaps a piping system that uses natural gas. This should get your attention…if carbon monoxide is leaking from a cracked heat exchanger, there is a chance of it mixing with the air.
Red tags are no joking matter. This is NOT a sale at K-Mart! It is important to have a trained technician repair the problem so that the tag may be removed.
