I don't know if your utility company offers the monthly 'insurance' fee or not, but here, I pay a little over 11 bucks a month, and there's NO CHARGE for labor OR PARTS. I've had the service for about 4 years, and sure, over time that adds up to a good chunk of change. But they cover several gas appliances for that cost. Dryer, Gas Stove, water heater, furnace I know for sure. And I've had them every year for SOMETHING, as my stuff is kinda old. They've had to replace the furnace coupling twice, the blower fan once.........fixed my dryer twice.........stuff like that. And no charge if it's after hours!!
