How to Keep Your AC Warranty from Being Voided
The last thing that you need to do is to spend a lot of money on a new air conditioning system only to see something go wrong with it. Even worse is when you call an AC expert to help you fix the issue only to learn that your AC warranty is already void and you are broke. Voiding your warranty is simpler than you think.
In fact, it only takes a single mistake, and your warranty is no longer valid. However, knowing how to avoid making costly errors can mean the difference between having simple repairs covered by the manufacturer and tossing more money out of the window. Here are some tips to help you keep your warranty from being voided.
Always Work with a Qualified Air Conditioner Installer
Improper installation of your air conditioning system will not only cause poor system performance and high energy bills, but it will also void your AC warranty. Make sure that you protect your new unit and the warranty by hiring an experienced, licensed and NATE-certified AC contractor to perform system installation.
Register Your AC Unit After Installation
The biggest mistake that most homeowners in Harrisburg tend to commit is failing to register their AC units after installation. It is mandatory for you to register the AC unit with the manufacturer after installation if you don’t want to void your warranty. And you need to keep in mind that most manufacturers give a specific deadline to complete the registration, which is usually 60 to 90 days after the installation. We understand the fact that the last thing you wish to do after getting your new AC unit is filling out more paperwork, but it is worth the effort.
Don’t Skip the Annual Maintenance
Are you doing everything that is needed to keep your AC unit in top shape? Do you change the air filter at least twice every month? Do you schedule annual maintenance? If your answer to any of these questions is no, then you risk making your warranty void. If your AC unit breaks down because you failed to clean/change the air filters as required, that is your mistake and not the fault of the manufacturer. A warranty will always insist on routine maintenance and tune-up, and the good news is that your warranty will cover most of this routine maintenance tasks.
Repairing Your Air Conditioner with Off-Brand Spare Parts
Your warranty will automatically become void the moment you replace any component of your AC system with an off-brand component. In this case, off-brand means any part that was manufactured by any other company other than the manufacturer of the AC unit. Typically, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts usually reduce the risk of damage to your AC system since they function similar to the part being replaced.
