The unique VHeat accounts and payment system are designed to make saving, and paying for, the heating season simple and easy. The payment system consists of a VHeat Clearing account and VHeat Credit Line that are required to participate in the program.
The VHeat Clearing account is where you should make regular deposits all year to budget and save for fuel. After each delivery, the dealer automatically debits this account for your payment. The VHeat Clearing account also earns interest like a regular checking account.
There are no checks or debit cards issued with the VHeat Clearing account. The account is strictly for deposits and dealer automatic debits.
|Account Type||Dividend Rate||APY||Minimum Opening Deposit||Minimum Daily Balance to Earn APY|
|APY = Annual Percentage Yield. Rates and yields may change after account opening. Fees could reduce earnings.|
The VHeat Credit Line is intended to be a safety net for your fuel payments. If you don’t have sufficient funds in your VHeat Clearing account your VHeat Credit Line is activated to make the payment to the dealer. The VHeat Credit Line may also be used to cover the expense of heating related services such as cleaning, repairs or upgrades.
The VHeat Credit Line is a loan and subject to underwriting and approval. For complete equipment replacement or efficiency upgrades, consider applying for a VGreen loan.
|VHeat Credit Line||8.00%|
APR = Annual Percentage Rate. APR is effective as of 1/1/2018 and is a variable rate.
