Homeowners often install new gas lines for cost savings, environmental considerations, and ease of use. Gas pipes known as ‘supplies’ or ‘services’ are the pipes that connect the gas main in the street to your gas meter. A gas meter is required for two principal reasons: to regulate the pressure leaving the meter under normal operating circumstances, and to act as a tool to measure the amount of gas a customer uses, so that a gas supplier can issue an appropriate bill.
Switching from electric to propane or natural gas or adding new appliances to your current setup will require additional pipes. Gas-powered devices are more efficient and of higher quality than electric ones, but you’ll need to retrofit them if your infrastructure doesn’t have the correct size tubing to support the installation. A gas line starts at the meter outside your home and leads to each appliance requiring gas. The crucial point to running your new gas line is open access to your basement ceiling.
Installing gas pipes is a dangerous job that requires a lot of knowledge and experience, which is reflected in the cost of labour. But for this project, you’ll want to ensure the person you hire is adequately trained and licensed to install gas lines. According to local regulations, it is illegal to modify a gas installation without a professional certificate of competence and doing so could result in prosecution and a fine.

Understanding Natural or Propane Gas Red Tags in the GTA Areas
The most common question about using gas appliances is what Red Tag means and what you should do. Let’s look deeper into this issue. A Red Tag shows a safety concern with the appliance or part to which it is attached. The tags are put in place by a gas company technician, who will usually write a description of the problem on the tag and describe the necessary repairs. He can shut off your gas supply if any immediate hazard situation appears.
The most common question about using gas appliances is what Red Tag means and what you should do. Let’s look deeper into this issue. A Red Tag shows a safety concern with the appliance or part to which it is attached. The tags are put in place by a gas company technician, who will usually write a description of the problem on the tag and describe the necessary repairs.
A red tag is issued when any gas equipment violates the specific gas code, for example, Ontario Gas Installation Code B149. This program is operated by the TSSA – Technical Standards Safety Authority. You can receive one of two Red Tags in case of gas leak or gas appliance damage; we’d like to describe the difference.
- Red Tag Type A
The equipment will be labelled with a Type A red tag if the gas appliance is a major hazard, like a carbon monoxide leak. This is the most serious type and means that you and your family are in danger. Your gas line will need to be turned off immediately.
- Red Tag Type B
The gas technician will use the Type B red tag if the appliance does not pose an immediate risk to the building and its tenants. Your local utility will be notified, too. This tag represents a 30-day deadline to have the labelled equipment either replaced or repaired. If you fail to remedy the problem, this will result in your local utility shutting off the gas to your building.
Improper installations or unauthorized installation of flexible gas lines and using unapproved parts can lead to receiving Red Tags on your gas appliance. Once an appliance has been red-tagged, that information is entered into the system of the gas supplier. Thus, the property owner is responsible for making the necessary repairs to ensure the tagged appliance is safe and ready for use. If you need gas leak repairs or have questions about Red Tag, contact the experts at Fix Appliance CA. If you suspect a leak, please call your gas supplier immediately!
