Don’t Void the HVAC Warranty for Your Chicagoland Home by Making These Mistakes

HVAC warrantyIf your current HVAC system is older, it might be a wise financial decision to have a newer, more energy efficient system installed. As you begin to search for a new HVAC system for your Chicagoland home, make sure you have a good understanding of warranties so that you don’t void an HVAC warranty by mistake.

Warranty Know-How

  • A manufacturer’s warranty comes with your new system and has many variables. Generally, these only cover specific parts when your system has been installed by licensed HVAC companies. They seldom cover the life of your units and don’t cover labor costs. If your unit isn’t installed and serviced by a professional, it can void an HVAC warranty and make it worthless.
  • An extended warranty is purchased with your new system to provide protection and coverage of future repair needs after the manufacturer’s warranty expires.
  • A maintenance contract is set up with your HVAC system provider to give regular maintenance and tune-ups for a reduced price on your system. This will help you to prevent future problems that could be much more costly. If you fail to have maintenance by a certified technician at least once a year, your warranty will be void.
  • Some HVAC companies give you a limited time to register your warranty with them. Failure to do so will make them void.
  • Always have proof of maintenance. Be sure to keep all receipts when maintenance is done on your HVAC system. You may need these for any warranty work that might be necessary.
  • When replacement parts are needed, it’s best to use the manufacturer’s parts on your unit. Using other brands may be less expensive, but it can void your warranty.
