Do not attempt to use any gas appliance (such as a fireplace) if the appliance is not operating as intended, there is a strong gas smell, or if the appliance has been tagged or noted by the utility company, an inspector, another technician, or homeowner until the gas fireplace has been inspected and/or repaired by a qualified/certified gas fireplace professional.

Invoices that are not paid by the due date are subject to a delinquent payment fee of 10% of the total amount due or $50 whichever is greater.  This fee will be added to the invoice after 5 days from the invoice due date without further notification.

Cancellation/Reschedule Policy

Wammoth Services understands the value of time of both our company employees and our customers.

Cancellation/Rescheduling Fee

$10 Reschedule Request Fee:  Wammoth Services will accept one (1) request to reschedule an appointment at no charge.  Subsequent requests to reschedule may be assessed as a $10 fee per reschedule request. 

$50 Cancellation Fee:  Cancellation requests must be received 1 business day prior to the scheduled appointment.  We recommend you email the cancellation request to ensure delivery.  Requests received after 5pm EST on the prior business day of the appointment or cancellations made on the day of scheduled appointment may be assessed as the $50 cancellation fee or the $150 minimum trip charge fee.

$150 Minimum trip charge will be assessed in the following events/circumstances: Our technician receives the cancellation request from the customer when the courtesy “prior to arrival call” has been made.  If the customer or their representative is a “no-show” for the scheduled appointment upon the technician arrival to the service location.  The customer or representative is not 18 years or older (minor).  The service location or appliance is considered a safety/fire/health hazard. The scheduled service could not be performed for any reason, but the technician arrived and reviewed the gas fireplace/appliance.

Multiple fireplace cancellation policy:  An appointment with multiple gas fireplaces to service (more than 1), a deposit may be required from the customer.  Should the customer cancel any of the gas fireplace services at time of appointment, a $50 fee per cancelled fireplace will be added to the invoice.

Appointment Policy and Other Information

Wammoth Services will provide an arrival window prior to the scheduled appointment as a courtesy. The arrival window is usually provided on the appointment reminder which is emailed the day before the scheduled service.  Customer understands that this is an estimated period and may be updated prior to appointment. The customer is expected to be available during the arrival window at the service location or make appropriate arrangements to allow the technician entry to the service location. The technician will call the customer prior to arrival (5-15 minutes prior to arriving).  If the Technician is not able to gain entry to the service location where the gas appliance is located upon arrival at the service address, we provide a 5-minute courtesy wait time.  After te 5-minute wait time, the appointment is considered a no-show.

If the technician is running early, prior to the start of the arrival window, the technician will contact the customer to see if the customer is available for an early arrival.  If the customer is not available earlier, the technician may move to another customer which may affect the original arrival window of the appointment.  In some cases, the technician may be running late or beyond the end of the arrival window.  Wammoth Services will contact customers in the event of a delayed arrival.

Wammoth Services does not guarantee that our Gas Fireplace Full Service will resolve all or any of the issue(s) pertaining to the gas fireplace.  Further, Wammoth Services does not guarantee that repairs and/or replacement parts will resolve the issue(s).  In some cases, additional repair and/or replacement parts may be required once other repairs are made or the unit may need to be replaced.

In the event the scheduled service or repair was not completed at the time of appointment for any reason, a minimum trip charge would apply if the technician arrived for the appointment and provided an assessment or discussed with customer any information related to the gas fireplace.

7-day workmanship warranty – we provide this warranty on our gas fireplace full service only.  The warranty is not available on Basic Inspection, Diagnostic or In-Home Estimate Appointments.  The customer is responsible for contacting Wammoth Services within seven calendar days of a full-service appointment regarding any issues, concerns, or operational difficulties.  Wammoth Services will review and schedule a follow-up service appointment at no charge to the customer. If it is determined that the issue is not regarding the workmanship of the service (for example, operator error, additional part failure), a charge for the follow up service will be applied. Pilot light must remain lit for the warranty to apply.  Wammoth Services is not responsible for conditions prior to the service, out of date, neglected or deteriorated parts. This warranty is non-transferable.

Extended Warranty Program

Wammoth Services may offer an extended workmanship/service warranty option for our gas fireplace full service at an additional charge.  Extended warranty program may be subject to change or cancellation without notice.  Certain gas fireplace situations regarding age of unit, condition, maintenance, previous damage, repairs, or the need for repairs are not included in the extended service warranty. 

Appointment Options/Opportunities

Wammoth Services may offer select options to our customers for various appointment conveniences.  These options are not required to schedule an appointment.  Options or opportunities may include specific arrival times/windows, earlier date availability during peak season, priority access to scheduling or savings/discounts.  Some options require additional expenses on our part such as scheduling, logistics, fuel, travel time.  Deposit may be required for the appointment with these options selected.  The deposit will not be refunded in cases where the customer cancels, reschedules or is a no-show.  Refunds for deposits on these special options will be determined by Wammoth Services on a case-by-case basis.  Inclement weather, unusual travel/traffic, issues involving our technician’s safety may hinder specific appointments and would not constitute a reason for a full refund.

Gas Smell

Customer agrees to take appropriate action regarding gas fuel – natural or propane. If a customer smells or thinks they smell gas (natural/liquid propane), the customer (and any other personnel) will immediately evacuate the premises and contact the gas utility company and/or 911. The customer acknowledges that gas leak(s) may and can occur at any time – even after servicing the gas appliance.
