ASHTON ADVANTAGE PLAN TERMS OF SERVICE
REQUIREMENTS TO BEGIN AN ASHTON ADVANTAGE PLAN
In order to enter into an ASHTON ADVANTAGE Plan Agreement of any kind for any major or secondary appliance, your appliance is required to undergo a ‘Magic Maintenance’ Inspection & Cleaning. When you choose to begin an ASHTON ADVANTAGE Plan with us, we will perform this initial inspection and cleaning for the discounted price of $59.99 per Major Appliance. Inspections for add on secondary appliances maintenance plans will be performed free of charge. Please note secondary appliance maintenance plans for storage water heaters, HRVs, ERVs, and humidifiers can only be purchased in conjunction with one of the three major appliance ASHTON ADVANTAGE Plan agreements.
A ‘Magic Maintenance’ is on a single piece of equipment and includes a systematic and thorough inspection of the equipment to determine that it is working safely, reliably, and efficiently. It is paid for by the customer when the equipment inspection is completed.
REPAIRS RECOMMENDED DURING ENROLLMENT
Any repairs recommended by an Ashton Technician during a ‘Magic Maintenance’ Enrollment Inspection & Cleaning must be completed at that time. The cost of these repairs will be quoted to and authorized by the customer prior to any of these repairs being initiated. During a regularly priced ‘Magic Maintenance’ for a customer not currently enrolled in any plan, the customer will be responsible for the full cost of any repairs deemed necessary by the technician.
If these repairs are performed, you will receive a 90-day diagnostic warranty. If the piece of equipment should fail within the 90-day period following the ‘Magic Maintenance’, an Ashton Technician will return and diagnose the problem at no charge to the customer and all repairs required would be quoted and charged at the regular or overtime rates. If, however, a customer is unwilling or unable to authorize recommended repairs, any future equipment failures occurring as a result would not be covered by the 90 day diagnostic warranty.
If a customer is receiving a discounted Enrollment ‘Magic Maintenance’ Inspection & Cleaning in order to qualify their equipment (as part of their initial application for an ASHTON ADVANTAGE Plan agreement) and the customer is unwilling or unable to authorize the recommended repairs, then their equipment would no longer qualify for enrollment into an ASHTON ADVANTAGE Plan agreement and the full regular charge would apply for the ‘Magic Maintenance.’
Only approved residential equipment installed in a residential home qualifies for ASHTON ADVANTAGE Plan agreements. Specifically only natural gas and electric furnaces / hot water boilers less than 150,000 BTUH, air handlers, split system heat pumps / air conditioners less than 6 tons nominal capacity, duct free split system heat pumps / air conditioners less than 3.5 tons nominal capacity, natural gas fireplaces less than 55,000 BTUH capacity, natural gas under fired storage type water heaters with less than 50,000 BTUH capacity, natural gas tank less water heaters and boilers less than 250,000 BTUH, flow through and drum style humidifiers, HRV and ERV with less than 300 CFM capacity.
