4 FAQs About Warranties

December 15, 2020 | Blog

From the day of installation on, AC systems require much tender love and care to continue running smoothly. Unfortunately, unexpected and costly AC repair fees can break your wallet. Luckily for people with newer systems, most manufacturers provide AC warranties that can cover most fees that come with AC services. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about AC warranties.

How Does a Warranty Work and What Does it Cover?

Most manufactures provide coverage for your new air conditioner and furnace equipment, and many cover the compressor. Additionally, they will cover the cost of future repairs and replace any malfunctioning parts. Some companies cover both equipment warranty and labor warranty, so it is always a good idea to ask about the company’s warranty before purchasing a system.

How Long do AC Warranties Last?

Most warranties last 5-10 years, but some even last for the entire lifetime of the system. Some companies offer labor warranties that last the entire life of the air conditioner and heater. If you aren’t sure how long your HVAC unit’s warranty lasts for, call the manufacturer or the company that installed it. If you’re installing a new HVAC unit, ask the AC company how long the warranty lasts.

How Do You Avoid a Warranty Void?

It is crucial that you take the time to understand the terms of your warranty after purchasing your system. This ensures you don’t accidentally void your warranty. Here are the most common ways in which warranties are voided:

  • The unit is installed by someone who is not a professional
  • There is no regular maintenance performed on the unit
  • There is no documentation proving that maintenance was performed
  • Someone uses cheaper parts to fix the unit that are not approved under the warranty
  • The unit is not registered properly

To make sure that you don’t void your warranty, you must carefully follow all of the conditions that come with your system. Furthermore, it is important to frequently perform maintenance services for your system and register it properly.

Are AC Warranties Worth It?

Yes, AC warranties are worth it. However, most experts believe that extended warranties may be a waste of money. Most repair fees and system parts are covered under the manufacturer’s original warranty, so paying the extra cash for an extended one may not be worth it.
