MFM Superior ELITE Maintenance Plan

COVERAGE PERIOD AND RENEWAL

The initial term of the Superior Elite Maintenance Plan (the “Plan”) is 1 year from the date of enrollment (the “Coverage Year”), except as specifically noted in this document. Coverage will renew automatically each year on the anniversary of the enrollment date (the “Renewal Date”) unless:

  • (i) you have given My Fathers Mechanical (“MFM”) written notice no later than 10 days after the Renewal Date that you do not wish to renew your coverage; or
  • (ii) MFM has given you notice prior to the Renewal Date that your coverage will not be renewed.

At any time, MFM may modify these Terms and Conditions, including annual Plan coverage prices. Prior to the Renewal Date, MFM will notify you of any changes to the Terms and Conditions, and such changes will automatically be in effect from the Renewal Date.

Labor and replacement costs are included for parts and services covered by the Plan; (b) annual Tune-Up and cleaning of your heating unit; (c) annual Tune-Up and cleaning of your air conditioning unit.

QUALIFYING EQUIPMENT

MFM shall perform an inspection of all equipment prior to initiation of the coverage period to determine if the equipment qualifies for coverage under this agreement. MFM reserves the right to refuse coverage for any equipment for any or no reason. In the event MFM determines that additional service is necessary for equipment to qualify for coverage, MFM will provide such additional service during its first maintenance visit at an additional charge. MFM reserves the right to refuse coverage for any equipment if repairs required to qualify for coverage, as determined by MFM, are not made prior to coverage.

THERMOSTAT FAILURE

If your thermostat fails, MFM will provide a replacement with a make/model of MFM’s choice that enables similar operation of your current dependent heating, ventilation, and/or air conditioning equipment. Zone thermostats/controls and programmable thermostat controls are NOT covered by the Plan.

ANCILLARY EQUIPMENT

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 the 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.

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;
  • The problem relates to improper sizing or application of equipment;
  • The household electrical fuse or breaker required for the furnace/air conditioning unit is blown;
  • The furnace/air conditioning unit has been turned off;
  • The thermostat is not at the proper setting;
  • The pilot has been extinguished by someone other than an MFM technician;
  • Installation, application or operation is inconsistent with the manufacturer’s installation instructions (including but not limited to mismatched components);

  • Diagnostic service, repair or replacement relates to a part not specifically listed in these Terms and Conditions as covered by the Plan or to a manufacturer’s parts recall;
  • Repair or replacement is needed as the result of abuse, tampering, alterations, or repairs done by other than an MFM technician;

UNAVAILABLE PARTS

MFM will attempt to obtain replacement parts or appropriate substitutes as quickly as reasonably possible. MFM is not liable for delay in obtaining parts due to limited availability. In the event that MFM is not able to obtain a replacement part, or obtain it at a commercially reasonable cost, MFM will not be liable for the related replacement. In any such case, you or MFM 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 MFM will be as set forth in the “Miscellaneous” portion of these terms and conditions.

LIABILITY

Damages resulting from the failure of replacement parts or services performed under the plan are not the responsibility of MFM, unless such damages result from MFM’s negligence. Program service does not cover any material, parts and labor required as the result of abuse, vandalism, fire, freezing, acts of God, power or water supply outages, rodent infestation, or other abnormal conditions.

MISCELLANEOUS

  • If you cancel prior to the Renewal Date, any payments owing on the annual premium become due;
  • Plan coverage is not transferable to another residence and, except as specifically noted in this document, is non-refundable. If you move, the balance of the Plan coverage then in effect remains with the heating/cooling unit and will be transferred to the new owner;
  • MFM reserves the right to assign our rights and/or obligations in connection with the Plan and your coverage to a third party;
  • Pre-existing problems are excluded from coverage;
  • MFM will determine whether parts replacement or repairs are necessary;
  • Service and parts must be provided solely by MFM. MFM will not reimburse you for the cost of services performed or parts replaced by another contractor;
  • All parts replaced under the Plan become the property of MFM; and
  • MFM reserves the right to discontinue at any time the Plan and/or your coverage thereunder. If MFM discontinues the Plan and/or your coverage thereunder, MFM’s liability will be restricted to refunding the unexpired portion of the annual charge, if any, and to completing any repairs or parts replacements covered by the Plan for which you have notified MFM up to the date the Plan and/or coverage is discontinued. Furthermore, if MFM has performed service under this agreement that exceeded the purchase price of this agreement, MFM will not be obligated to refund the unexpired portion of the annual charge.

REPLACEMENT ALLOWANCE

In the event MFM determines that replacement of covered equipment is necessary, MFM will provide a replacement allowance towards the new equipment, as well as a credit equivalent to the unexpired portion of the annual charge applicable to the purchase of a new system from MFM.
