If you’re like most consumers, you spend a lot of time researching the price and the performance of a new HVAC system when your old one needs to be replaced. However, most of us spend little or no time to analyze what type of warranties the systems’ manufacturer offers. While this part of the transaction is less popular than energy efficiency or cost savings, it’s still an important part of the deal.
Why Product Warranties are Important
A warranty is a promise from the manufacturer that the heating and cooling system will perform as advertised and outlined in the sales documents. Because the possibility of factory defects are generally not apparent simply by looking at the new system, warranties provide a way for the manufacturer to correct the issue for the buyer should he or she have problems with the system after purchasing it. Most warranties have a specific time limit and also limit the parts of the system that are covered.
1. Protection Against Huge Repair Expenses
A strong warranty gives you confidence that the manufacturer feels they have produced a quality product. If something fails on their comfort system, they are willing to stand behind it.
2. Value When Reselling Your Home
Many warranties are transferable. That means the new owner of your home can take advantage of the warranty protection if he or she has an issue with the system after you’ve sold your home.
3. Reasons to Keep Up on Maintenance
Most warranties require that you follow through with regularly scheduled maintenance. This gives homeowners one more good reason to do what is already a good idea, one that can extend the lifetime of your furnace and its energy efficiency.
