Lab our and replacement costs are included for parts and service covered by the Plan. (b) annual check‐up and the cleaning of your heating unit; (c) annual check‐up and cleaning of your air conditioning unit.

The Plan does NOT cover: filter replacement, replacement of consumable parts (examples: UV bulbs, fuses, filters), refill, vacuuming, boiler system drainage, flushing of the heat exchanger, all waterside components, and additional cleaning that is required due to either insufficient maintenance prior to joining The Plan or due to uses inconsistent with the product’s intended use.
Thermostat Failure: If your thermostat fails, A-Plus Quality will provide a replacement with a make/model of A-Plus Quality’s choice that enables similar operation of your current dependent heating, ventilation, and/or air conditioning equipment. Zone thermostats/controls and programmable controls are not covered by The Plan.
The Plan does NOT cover:
(a) Heating: ancillary equipment such as air conditioners, humidifiers, condensate pumps, air cleaners, parts added on to your heating unit to accommodate such equipment, or repairs to your furnace made necessary as a result of faulty ancillary equipment; (b) Cooling: ancillary equipment such as furnaces, humidifiers, condensate and air cleaners, or repair to the air conditioning unit made necessary as a result of faulty ancillary equipment. Qualifying
Equipment: A-Plus Quality shall perform an inspection of all equipment prior to the initiation of the coverage period to determine if the equipment qualifies for coverage under this agreement. A-Plus Quality reserves the right to refuse coverage for any equipment for (a) not meeting required qualification standards, (b) any or no reason. In the event A-Plus Quality determines that additional service is necessary for the equipment to qualify for coverage, A-Plus Quality will provide such additional service during its first maintenance visit at an additional charge. A-Plus Quality reserves the right to refuse coverage for any equipment if repairs required to qualify for coverage, as determined by A-Plus Quality, are not made prior to coverage.
Unavailable Parts: A-Plus Quality will attempt to obtain replacement parts or appropriate substitutes as quickly as reasonably possible. A-Plus Quality is not liable for delay in obtaining parts due to limited availability. In the event A-Plus Quality is not able to obtain a replacement part, or obtain it at a commercially reasonable cost, A-Plus Quality will not be liable for the related replacement. In any such case, you or A-Plus Quality may terminate the Plan coverage for the equipment involved. If there has not been a prior service call paid by The Plan in the current “Coverage Year”, the annual repair coverage premium will be refunded in full upon such termination. If a prior service call has been made, liability of A-Plus Quality will be set forth in the “Miscellaneous” portion of these terms and conditions.
Excluded Costs: The Plan does not cover the costs of problem diagnosis and service, repair, parts replacement or adjustment in circumstances where:
- Equipment fails due to lack of maintenance, including but not limited to, lack of filter maintenance.

You will be responsible for any additional charges above this amount.
Liability: Damages resulting from the failure of replacement parts or services performed under The Plan are not the responsibility of A-Plus Quality, unless such damages result from A-Plus Quality’s negligence.
