Your HVAC system is an investment, and it keeps your home comfortable year-round. The last thing you want to do is accidentally void the warranty. How can you avoid it? By knowing what not to do. Here are three unexpected things that could void your HVAC warranty.
#1: Poor Installation
One thing not to do is have a handyman install your HVAC system. Most manufacturer warranties are void if the system isn’t installed by an HVAC professional. Make sure you only work with licensed companies and technicians to ensure your system functions as it should and to protect your warranty.
#2: DIY Repairs
While we applaud weekend DIY project warriors but when it comes to your furnace and air conditioner, leave the work to the pros. Off-label repairs done by anyone other than a licensed technician can leave you without a valid warranty.
#3: Neglecting Regular Maintenance
When the heat and cooling are working fine, many homeowners don’t see the need for regular maintenance. Failing to keep up with recommended maintenance is a great way to void your warranty. When you hire an HVAC company, not only will you ensure your system works the way it should, is energy efficient, and has a long life, you’re also ensuring the manufacturer will honor the warranty on the equipment.
You know that a warranty can protect you and your bank account from the cost of repairs due to malfunction or faulty parts. Don’t risk that coverage by voiding your warranty accidentally. Find out more by contacting the HVAC experts at G+S Heating Air Energy Services.
