Terms and Conditions

How to Contact Us:

For emergencies, our certified service technicians are on call 24 hours a day. After hours, we will respond to heating system calls if the temperature is expected to drop below 50 degrees. Just give us a call at 802-863-4511. Annual inspections (if purchased) and other non-emergency repairs to heating systems will be scheduled during normal work hours, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, during the months of February through August. We will respond to water heater service calls every day of the week from 8:00 am to 8:30 pm. Service Plan participants must be able to provide VGS personnel clear and safe access to any equipment covered by the Service Plan, and VGS shall not be required to perform repairs on equipment that is not safely accessible.

Coverage Term, Price Changes, and Cancellation:

Coverage begins 14 days after you sign up and is month to month thereafter. You can cancel anytime by calling us at 802-863-4511 or emailing customerservice@vermontgas.com. Rates and terms are subject to change in January each year. Communication regarding any rate or term changes will be made electronically and 30 days prior to such change. Each VGS Service Plan option covers a single appliance, and service plans may not be transferred. Your plan will be cancelled if payments are delinquent for more than 60 days.

Monetary Limitation of Coverage:

VGS shall not provide repairs exceeding $2,000 per Service Plan in a 12 month period

Conditions for Coverage:

Acceptance and participation in the Service Plan is conditional and subject to the age and condition of your equipment and if necessary, a site inspection, at VGS’s option, to confirm that equipment is in good working order at the time the Service Plan goes into effect. All equipment must be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions; Federal, State or local requirements; and VGS standards. If during a service call or inspection, it is determined that your equipment was not installed in accordance with Federal, State or local requirements, this Service Plan will not over the costs to bring your equipment into compliance.

In the event that a replacement part is no longer manufactured, or otherwise unavailable, interchangeable parts may be used when necessary.   Some routine maintenance services, such as seasonal pilot light-ups, cleaning boiler water, draining expansion tanks, venting radiators and system balancing, are not covered under the plan. The Plan also does not cover damages resulting from flooding, fire, freezing, lightning, power surges, delays, inability to get parts, vandalism, or customer negligence. In addition, labor and materials for the following components are not covered: circuit breakers, external wiring, air filters, automatic water feeds, air vents, relief valves, blowers and shafts, blower bearings, direct drive blower assemblies, induced draft motors, power venters, boiler sections, circulator pumps, cartridge-type circulators, expansion tanks, gas piping, heat exchangers, hot water coils, humidifiers, low water cut-offs, motorized dampers, water piping and zone valve bodies.
