Heating, Ventilation, and Air Condition are the most vital appliances in modern homes. Without them, we would never feel comfortable in our own homes. We all know that HVAC systems are expensive, complicated machines, which is why a good warranty is critical to minimize your out-of-pocket costs. What you may not know is how easily you can void your HVAC warranty. Read on to learn how to protect your HVAC warranty to keep your home comfortable and save money.
If you fail to maintain your HVAC system, it will no doubt fail at some point. Most warranties stipulate as a prerequisite that you perform regular maintenance on your system. Proper and routine maintenance of your HVAC system is key to keeping your warranty valid. Statistics show that system maintenance reduces the probability of system breakdowns by 95% and increases machine efficiency reducing energy consumption by 25-30%. This will reduce your electric bill significantly as large appliances account for a majority of a household’s energy consumption.
Keep in mind that most warranties require your HVAC system be installed and maintained by a licensed HVAC technician. Be sure to contact us, Renown AC, for installation and maintenance from the best HVAC contractor in Deltona. Regardless of who’s installing, maintaining, or replacing your HVAC system, it’s crucial to keep detailed records of operations for proof of care. Proper maintenance is essential for ensuring your comfort, safety, and savings of both money and energy.
Installation is the most important and complicated part of HVAC maintenance. As we’ve previously discussed, it’s important to consult exclusively with licensed HVAC technicians. Trying to save money with cheap parts and untrustworthy installers will increase your risk of breakdowns, increased operating costs, energy inefficiency, safety issues, and a voided warranty.
Avoid hiring “handymen” or part-timers, even ones you know personally. It’s important that the installer you hire is licensed and insured to minimize your liability. Keep a close eye on the equipment being used to setup your HVAC system. Off-brand non-official equipment is very dangerous because each HVAC system is designed with certain specifications with regard to current capacity, voltage, heat capacity, and many other factors. Make sure that the parts are Original Equipment Manufactured (OEM) so that your system runs smoothly.
This one may seem obvious, but it’s important to register for an HVAC warranty on time. Most of the time you’ll have 60 days to register your warranty after installation. To register, you must provide proof of purchase from a licensed HVAC contractor.
