Home Heating Protection Plans

Flexible options to suit every home.

Your furnace takes care of you all winter, so when it breaks down, every hour matters. With a Direct Energy® heating protection plan, your home and furnace will receive important protection.

Worry-free furnace maintenance and repairs

You bought your homeowners insurance for a good reason, but it only covers damage from emergencies, and it won't help you with routine maintenance or breakdowns caused by age or normal wear and tear. A heating protection plan from Direct Energy can correct that gap in your coverage, because with plans as affordable as $8.99/mo, you can enjoy convenience, value, and peace of mind for just pennies per day.
