With the kind of winters we get here in Western Colorado, you simply can’t afford to be without an operational furnace for any extended period of time. That’s why a red-tagged furnace can be such a nightmare. If a utility company representative or HVAC technician has deemed your furnace unsafe and ordered it to be shut down (or “red-tagged”), you will find yourself unable to heat your home until you address the issue that led to the red-tagged furnace in the first place.
It’s essential to stay cool, calm and collected if you have a red-tagged furnace. Homeowners make expensive mistakes when they panic and have to make a major decision in a short period of time. Here is a step-by-step guide to dealing with a red-tagged furnace:
Some of the problems that lead to red-tagging, particularly damaged or cracked heat exchangers, can be extremely expensive to repair. In such cases, unless the heat exchanger is under warranty, it can be a better bet to purchase and install a new, more efficient furnace.
