Understanding Gas Appliance Red-Tagging: A Guide to Enbridge, Enercare, Reliance, and More
A RED TAG is a warning label that is issued by your heating contractor or fuel distributor, such as Enbridge, when they find an unsafe fuel-burning appliance. There are two types of RED TAGS: TYPE A and TYPE B.
Technical Standard & Safety Authority Responsibilities
The Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) is a non-profit organization tasked with enforcing and creating public safety regulations in various areas, including elevators, ski lifts, upholstery, amusement rides, fuels, boilers, pressure vessels, and operating engineers. These measures are put in place to safeguard both human life and the environment. In Ontario, all heating contractors must hold a license from TSSA in order to perform any kind of service on furnaces, water heaters, boilers, gas fireplaces, or any other fuel-burning appliance that uses natural gas, propane, or oil. This ensures that any work done on these appliances is carried out by qualified professionals who adhere to strict safety standards, giving you peace of mind knowing that your heating system is in good hands
