An HVAC warranty is your protection should you need an AC repair service. It will protect you against untimely repairs and having to pay out-of-pocket to fix most issues.
What your warranty covers and what it doesn’t depends on various factors, but these days, in many cases an HVAC warranty will include coverage for the following:
Major part replacements
Certain repair requirements
As most HVAC problems occur when you least expect them, particularly the most expensive ones, having a warranty can be a huge relief. However, it can be rendered void under certain circumstances. Keep your warranty valid by following these tips:
Don’t forget to register the warranty. Most HVAC warranties have to be registered. This can be done by mail or on the manufacturer’s/installer’s website. In most cases, the installer will remind the home/business owner to register the warranty as soon as possible. Don’t procrastinate on this because you might end up completely forgetting about it. If you need to make a claim against the warranty but haven’t yet registered the unit, the manufacturer or installer can decline to pay out. Some might allow late registration, but this can delay the repair or payment or affect the coverage. Most warranties are voided if you fail to register them within the specified time frame.
Schedule annual maintenance. One of the most important conditions for keeping a warranty active is AC maintenance. If you fail to maintain your unit, the manufacturer or installer can void the warranty because you didn’t take better care of the unit. Schedule annual maintenance with a professional to maintain your warranty.
Document maintenance and repairs. Keep any reports and receipts you get for the maintenance or repair of the unit in a safe place. You can avoid losing the documents by keeping them in an AC maintenance notebook. The technician is likely to ask for proof that you were diligent in maintaining your unit if you ever have to file a claim against the warranty.
