Looking to save money when buying a new HVAC system? Or, you simply want to lessen the stress that comes with accidental system breakdown? If yes, then consider getting an HVAC warranty. But before you sign up for the warranty, know first the things that should come with it, so your investment won’t go to waste.
Here’s what your HVAC warranty should cover:
Overall Warranty Terms
The term of your warranty refers to how long it lasts. A good manufacturer should stand behind its products at least two years from the time the system is handed to you. So when looking for a manufacturer or HVAC company, it is important to pick the one who offers the longest warranty term to handle the costly repairs.
Your HVAC contractor may extend your original warranty term for up to 10 years. This warranty covers parts and labors, and it allows you to manage the ongoing operating costs. When getting an extended warranty, be sure to ask your contractor of how many years they have been in the business, when the service is available, how long the technician will come to fix your HVAC problems.
The warranty’s term may differ for different HVAC parts and labor costs. For instance, a heat exchanger may have a 20-year warranty, and other parts may only have a 10-year warranty. Also, when working with a contractor, ask if the company requires a warranty-processing fee, which is used to processs your warranty-related papers.
Besides your manufacturer’s offered warranty term, your HVAC contractor should also stand behind the services it provides. Your contractor should offer protection when your HVAC system is accidentally damaged during the installation process or if your unit encounters installation-related issues over time. Your contractor needs to produce a written 100% money-back guarantee before he proceeds to the actual installation work.
Professional Recommendations and Services
When getting a warranty, always ask for professional assistance from your trusted contractor. They can provide expert recommendations and services that will make your investment a good one and keep your warranty valid. Most manufacturers require the warranty-holders to hire licensed technicians when their system needs installation or repair. You can void your warranty if you choose to work with non-certified contractors or use non-approved parts during the replacement.
