Oilheat Service Plans

A MacFarlane Energy Service Plan is the perfect solution for keeping your heating system in peak operating condition and controlling repair costs. We offer a choice of three plans: Basic, Value and No Surprises. 

Each policy provides a preventative tune-up and the assurance of 24-hour coverage for no heat emergencies. The differences are in the coverage for repair work.




Here is a detailed look at our service policies:


 Basic Plan

This economical plan combines maintenance and cost savings on repairs. The Basic Plan is for the customer who wants preventative maintenance and 24-hour coverage for no-heat emergencies combined with some coverage for repairs. We will bill at our regular rates for all other repairs.


  • Your system receives preventative maintenance
  • You are assured of 24-hour coverage for a no-heat emergency
  • 10% discount on parts and labor
 Value Plan

The Value Plan is our mid-level policy that covers most problems that are likely to occur with a heating system. It includes preventative maintenance and the assurance of 24-hour response to a no-heat emergency. It also provides extensive coverage in the event of a repair. The cost of any repair that we make to any system component covered by this plan is completely covered, including both parts and labor, and you pay nothing for those repairs. (If we make repairs to components that are not covered by the Value Plan, we bill those at our regular rates for those repairs.) 


  • Your system receives expert preventative maintenance
  • You are assured of 24-hour coverage for a no-heat emergency
  • You pay nothing for repairs to any system components covered by the Value Plan (see list below)
