Generally, most people don’t consider the warranty until after it is too late. But as HVAC systems are a major investment, it is something you should really know and understand. When you learn the basics and have it in the back of your mind, you can apply the necessities as you need to and knowing the fundamentals of your warranty can really be a lifesaver.
HVAC Manufaturers Warranty
There are a few warranty levels that are different as far as protection goes for your HVAC system. The manufacturer is stating that the equipment was made correctly and should function properly as a guarantee or a promise made to the customer. Though they are not always written out, the guarantee is usually implied and free of charge to consumers. The manufacturer’s warranty is the legal agreement that states they will fix or replace a faulty part or product within a certain time frame, which is between consumer and manufacturer. An example of this is when you contact the manufacturer to replace the parts of a newly installed HVAC system where the motor stopped working due to no one’s fault. At the time of installation, the manufacturer’s warranty is typically presented to you as a written contract or certificate.
HVAC Labor Warranty
A labor warranty is something that the HVAC contractor may offer that ensures the system was installed correctly and in the event something breaks down due to improper installation, the company will cover the cost.
HVAC Extended Warranties
An extended warranty is frequently offered at additional cost, by either manufacturer or HVAC contractor that installs the system, to provide more protection and for a longer duration of time. When it comes to the warranty it is important that you know they can differ significantly from manufacturer to manufacturer. In some cases, the better warranty can help consumers choose between the different manufacturers. Your HVAC technician should walk you through all of the specifics of your warranty when your new HVAC system is installed, including the specifics of length of protection and everything that is covered. However, during this time, you can ask all of your own questions. Some questions worth asking are the following:
– Will the warranty of the HVAC system transfer to the new homeowners if I should sell my home?
– What will invalidate or break the warranty, whether it is done accidentally or voluntary?
– What is the process of using the warranty?
– How long does “lifetime” really mean when manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty on specific parts?
– How easy to use or access the warranty of I experience a breakdown with system in the allotted time frame?
Additionally, once you presented with certificate or documentation of your warranty you will want to find out how you can activate or register the warranty. This step may done by your HVAC system company or something that you need to do on your own. The warranty, in any case, is an important element to your HVAC system installation and you will want to take the time to understand the specifics of your warranty.
