Your HVAC system can stop working at
any time, or you may need to repair some parts of the HVAC system. That’s why
most of the HVAC manufacturers offer warranty for the HVAC system. However, the
warranty can be used as a marketing policy or gain customers’ trust, but I
won’t talk about this topic today.
Many home users believe that they
won’t need the warranty service. On the other hand, there’s another group which
believes that the manufacturer won’t give them the warranty service, which they
promised to do. But unfortunately, both groups are wrong. HVAC warranty service
is straightforward, and there are no hidden conditions behind it. If you need a
service warranty, you’ll get it from the HVAC company. Wise home HVAC users
collect all the information about the HVAC warranty service and use them when
they’re in need of that.
In this article, I’ll give you the
full guide of HVAC warranty and its different types.
Types of HVAC Warranties
A faulty installation is one of the
common reasons why the HVAC manufacturer company will refuse to give you the
warranty they offered because they don’t have anything to do with the
installation. Manufacturer companies will only give the HVAC equipment, and
you’ll need to install it by yourself or with the help of HVAC professionals.
However, an HVAC professional or dealer provides you the installation warranty.
If something happens during the installation, the dealer will be responsible for
the damages and repay.
Many homeowners in the US face this
faulty installation problem. As they don’t know about the installation
warranty, they seek help from the manufacturer company. But when you have a
faulty installation, the HVAC manufacturer company won’t provide you any
warranty as it’s not under the terms and conditions of their warranty.
So, before installing, ask for the
installation warranty to the dealer. It’ll save you from harassment and other
The manufacturer warranty is provided
by the manufacturer, which made the HVAC system. When you buy the product,
you’ll have to register the product to your name. Most of the manufacturer
company offers 5 to 10 years of warranty. In this time, if your HVAC system
requires any repair or it stops working, you can go to the shop and claim the
You may have received an email about
the extended warranty of your HVAC equipment. Extended warranties are generally
given for air conditioners, furnace, and heat pumps. These extended warranties
are offered by third parties. So, before claiming the extended warranty, you
should read all the terms and conditions of the contract.
Now, I’ll tell you briefly about what
these HVAC warranties cover and what they don’t.
HVAC Warranties Cover and Don’t
HVAC warranties generally cover the
defects in materials and workmanship. For example, if there’s a problem in the
parts of the HVAC system and those problems start to show during the coverage
time, then the manufacturer company will replace that defected parts without
any cost. Also, there can be incompetence on the assembly line; this is called
workmanship. If your HVAC system isn’t assembled properly, it won’t function as
you expect. So, when you take your HVAC equipment to the manufacturer, they’ll
check the assembled parts of your HVAC system, and if they find out that the
problem you’re facing is because of the assemble fault, the manufacturer will
repair it without any cost and labor charge.
Now, let’s talk about which HVAC
warranty won’t cover. Actually, this is more about how to void your HVAC
warranty. Fortunately, if you’re aware of this, you can easily avoid these
Your HVAC warranty won’t cover the
faulty installation. If your system catches fire or if it is struck by lightning
on the HVAC equipment, it’ll be considered as a
faulty installation. The HVAC company can also call
it the act of God. Since the HVAC manufacturer has nothing to do with this, the
manufacturer will refuse you to offer any warranty. Also, if you buy the HVAC
equipment from the unauthorized seller or add any parts that aren’t authorized
by the HVAC company, you won’t get the warranty. So, before buying and adding
new parts to the system, you should check the authentication of the source.
