An HVAC warranty is a valuable addition to your Jefferson, LA, home comfort system, but it’s not something that you can take for granted. Make sure you address maintenance, repairs, and registration properly to keep your warranty in place. Follow these tips so you can cash in on your warranty if you need to.
Forgetting to Register the Appliance
An HVAC warranty is a great perk, and one that may entice you to invest in a more expensive unit when you’re choosing an upgrade. Unfortunately, most warranties aren’t in place by default. You need to register your new appliance to make sure the warranty goes into effect. If you don’t complete the registration in a timely manner, the warranty offer will expire.
Ignoring Regular Maintenance
Most HVAC warranties require annual maintenance visits to stay in effect. If you don’t maintain your system properly, you won’t be eligible for the benefits of your warranty. Make sure you’re scheduling your tune-ups once a year. Sign up for our service agreement and you’ll enjoy a comprehensive service plan that includes all your preventive care.
Neglecting Your Record-Keeping
Keep a record of every maintenance visit and repair for your HVAC system. These will be crucial when it comes to cashing in on your warranty. You must prove that you’ve upheld your obligations to keep the warranty in effect. Store your receipts and maintenance records in a designated place.
Using the Wrong Parts or Service Providers
Your HVAC warranty undoubtedly states that you must use the manufacturer’s own parts for any repairs or replacements. If you’re using parts from anyone other than the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), your warranty will immediately be voided. You must also work with the right repair technician. Performing DIY repairs can void your warranty, even when you know what you’re doing. Always turn to a professional.
