Residential homeowners often tend to forget to do regular checks on the household’s water heater for years until it begins causing troubles. Most water heaters run between 8 and 15 years. If your hot water heater falls within that range, you may experience common issues whether it be leakages or a full malfunction, causing it to stop working altogether. If your water heater gives you symptoms such as weird noises, discolored water or smelling water, you should consider servicing it soon.
This is typically the point where the homeowner is forced to call a professional service technician for further assistance. Often times due to improper outdated installation, code violation or safety hazard, you can get a red tag by Enbridge Gas or your licensed HVAC contractor. The visit results in the homeowner learning that the issue caused due to safety concerns with the equipment safety features. Red tags usually indicate a description of the problem and describe the necessary repairs or remedies. The technician will also disconnect gas service to the problem area, either by capping off the nearest valve or shutting off gas service to the entire property. At this point, you should never attempt to reconnect any appliance that has been red tagged. While it may be an inconvenience and expense to arrange repairs, keep that in mind that this can create a very irreversible outcome and you should take the notice seriously.
