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

QUALIFYING EQUIPMENT
SE shall perform an inspection of all equipment prior to commencement of the Term to determine if the equipment qualifies under this agreement. SE reserves the right to decline any equipment for any or no reason. In the event SE determines that additional service is necessary for equipment to qualify for a Plan, Service Experts will provide such additional service during its first maintenance visit at an additional charge. SE reserves the right to decline any equipment if repairs required to qualify for the Plan, as determined by SE, are not made prior to the commencement of the Term.

THERMOSTAT FAILURE
If your thermostat fails, SE will provide a replacement with a make/model of SE’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 included in the Plan.

UNAVAILABLE PARTS
SE will attempt to obtain replacement parts or appropriate substitutes as quickly as reasonably possible. SE is not responsible for delay in obtaining parts due to limited availability. In the event that SE is not able to obtain a replacement part, or obtain it at a commercially reasonable cost, SE will not be responsible for the related replacement. In any such case, you or SE may terminate the Plan for the equipment involved. If there has not been a prior service call paid by the Plan in the current Term, the annual Plan service price will be refunded in full upon such termination. If a prior service call has been made, liability of SE will be as set forth in the “Miscellaneous” portion of these Terms and Conditions.

EXCLUDED COSTS

Your Plan 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 then in effect remains with the heating/cooling unit and will be transferred to the new owner. SE reserves the right to assign our rights and/or obligations in connection with the Plan to the third party. Pre-existing problems are excluded from the Plan. SE will determine whether parts replacement or repairs are necessary. Service and parts must be provided solely by SE. SE will not reimburse you for the costs of services performed or parts replaced by another contractor. All parts replaced under the Plan become the property of SE . SE reserves the right to discontinue at any time your Plan. If SE discontinues the Plan, SE’s obligation will be restricted to refunding the unexpired portion of the Plan service price, if any, and to completing any repairs or parts replacements included in your Plan for which you have notified SE up to the date your Plan is discontinued. Furthermore, if SE has performed service under your Plan that exceeded the Plan service price, SE will not be obligated to refund the unexpired portion of the Plan service price.

REPLACEMENT ALLOWANCE
In the event SE determines that replacement of equipment included in the Plan is necessary, SE will provide a replacement allowance on new equipment, as well as a credit equivalent to the unexpired portion of the annual Plan service price applicable to the purchase of a new system from SE.
