A Service Plan from ckSmithSuperior ensures that your heating system gets the periodic preventative maintenance it needs to run smoothly. Currently, we offer two different full-service protection plans to cover your heating equipment (Silver and Gold) with varying degrees of increased coverage to all customers on automatic delivery. We also offer our new TankGuard® program which provides protection for your fuel oil tank.
Silver Service Plan
OUR MOST POPULAR SERVICE PLAN WITH CUSTOMERS
Please Note: Oil lines are not covered by ANY of our service plans. Water parts are not covered by this particular service plan. For additional coverage on water parts please see our Gold Service Plan.
Tank Protection Plan
Oilheat storage tanks are durable and well designed, but they eventually need to be replaced. ckSmithSuperior helps customers reduce the cost of replacing their Oilheat storage tank through our Tank-Guard® Program. If your oil tank leaks, we will replace it with a standard tank (up to 330-gallon capacity) at a small fee. Any permit fees and/or code upgrades are not included in this plan. For an additional level of protection, we have introduced a tank tray that can be installed under the tank to catch any oil spills, leaks, or drips.
For details visit the Tank Protection section of our Oil Tank page.
1.) All oil supply and return lines between the oil supply tank and oil burner are not covered by any service plan. However, to have any service plan your oil line MUST be protected per Massachusetts Codes 527 CMR 4.04e.
2.) No policy will be issued for outdated and/or obsolete equipment which will be determined by ckSmithSuperior inspectors.
