An Approved Oil Service Contract provides outstanding value and real peace of mind. For one low annual price, you give your system the preventive maintenance it requires via a thorough, expert tune-up... but that's not all! You also receive coverage for most major system components — if any covered component requires repair or replacement due to normal wear and tear, we'll do the work promptly at no additional cost. Considering the cost of parts and labor today, your service contract could save you thousands of dollars.
Approved Oil offers two levels of protection: the Basic Comfort Plan and the Premium Comfort Plan.
Basic Comfort Plan
The Basic Comfort Plan covers just about anything that's likely to go wrong with your system and includes our annual tune-up to increase your system's longevity and performance.
Approved Oil will repair or replace during the life of this agreement, at no extra charge to our customer, any of the following parts, which may become defective due to normal use or wear and tear.
Premium Comfort Plan
The Premium Comfort Plan includes everything in the Basic Comfort Plan plus the significant addition of the following major parts and services:
Both plans include a full tune up and full vacuuming of the chimney base and boiler.
