What Are Protection and Maintenance Plans?

A protection plan is like insurance for your furnace, air conditioner or boiler. The plan covers parts and labour costs for any necessary HVAC equipment repairs.*

An annual maintenance plan covers the cost of an annual HVAC equipment inspection by an Enercare Energy Management Consultant. The annual maintenance checks help identify potential equipment problems before they become costly breakdowns. The technician will also check for energy efficiency and carbon monoxide leaks. 

Your home is a special place where memories are made. Don't let appliance breakdowns get in the way of living your best life and creating precious moments. Maintenance and protection plans help avoid these stressful, expensive and time-consuming experiences, so you can continue to focus on what matters most. 

As part of the service, you'll also get:

  • 365-day parts and labour protection*
  • Unlimited Service Calls
  • A HomeCare Report including expert assessment and recommendations
  • Same Day Service† – call by 5 pm and we’ll be there as fast as same day

If your maintenance technician recommends repairs after their inspection, you can save money on parts and labour by signing up for a heating protection plan. As part of the plan, you’re covered for any repair costs.1

Furnace Ventor Motor $0 $604
Furnace Gas Valve $0 $534
