A new HVAC system is a worthwhile investment, which is why you need to take several factors into account to ensure you get the most out of it. As you shop and compare different products, you have to pay close attention to the warranties as you would the varying features and costs. A well-defined warranty should protect you in case something goes wrong with your purchase by lowering out-of-pocket repair expenses.
Acker Heating & Cooling, your trusted contractor for your air duct sealing needs, outline the things you want in your HVAC warranty.
The term refers to how long the warranty lasts. When comparing products, be sure to check each of its terms. The one with the longest warranty term is ideal, especially with how costly repairs can be. However, some warranties with the word “lifetime” attached may only cover labor-related expenses during the first year. Sometimes, these warranties don’t cover labor costs at all.
Warranties for HVAC Parts
HVAC components, including heat exchangers, compressors, and coils, have varying coverage timeframes. A heat exchanger, for instance, has a 20-year warranty. Other parts, such as the fan and fan motor, have warranties that last 10 to 15 years. The terms usually depend on how expensive the models of these components are, as well as the expected life span of the unit itself. Be sure to discuss with your trusted repair & maintenance contractor about these so you know what to expect from the unit you’re looking to purchase.
Your HVAC warranty includes not only the manufacturer’s guarantee but also that of the contractor behind the installation of your purchased unit. It protects you against anything that leads to the HVAC unit getting damaged during installation or if problems start developing later on due to an installation-related issue. Ask your contractor if they offer installation warranties for your peace of mind.
