If you have recently replaced your furnace or any of your HVAC systems, chances are good that you likely got a warranty folded in there with it. You paid that extensive price and no matter whether it was included with the purchase of the appliance or you paid a little bit extra for it, you might have a nice protecting warranty on your systems. It would be a real shame if simple inaction voided it, making it useless.
The warranty on your HVAC can help cover unexpected repairs that were likely the fault of the manufacturer and not due to age or use of the HVAC appliances. It will cover replacement and even many repairs on the HVAC. However, unless you are pretty diligent in reading the terms of your appliance warranty or your technician goes over it with you, then you likely won’t know that not taking proper care of your furnace will void it.
In almost all HVAC warranties, there is a clause that states if you miss even one yearly maintenance call on your furnace or air conditioner, then this means the warranty is void. This means if your furnace has been installed for a year and one month, and has not had its annual maintenance by a professional HVAC technician, nothing that happens will be covered by that warranty anymore. The heat exchanger could crack in half, and it will still be on you to have that replaced despite it being only a year old.
There are tons of great reasons to have your HVAC maintained yearly, but many may decide to skip this if their appliance is newer. Unfortunately, doing so can be shooting yourself in the foot if that appliance does have something go seriously wrong with it. If you have a warranty on your furnace or air conditioner, it is time to give a professional a call to schedule your maintenance. Contact us today to see what Tri County Air Care can do to help.
