What Voids An HVAC Warranty?

post img

An HVAC unit is an investment that is well worth the time and money invested in it. Because it provides heating and cooling for your comfort and safety, your unit needs to be correctly maintained. Failure to do so can result in an inefficient unit and specific issues that may void your warranty. When this happens, you’ll have to pay for repair or replacement costs out of pocket.

Below, we discuss HVAC warranties and what can void them.

What Is An HVAC Warranty?

Most manufacturers issue an HVAC warranty to cover a range of repairs or replacements. Because manufacturers cannot guarantee that all parts of your unit will work perfectly, the warranty ensures they are responsible for certain issues that may arise. This can ultimately save a lot of money for home and business owners.

Ways You Can Void Your Unit’s Warranty

While the manufacturer covers many issues, there are things you, as a home or business owner, can do that can unfortunately void the warranty. Familiarizing yourself with these issues can help you avoid them:

You Didn’t Register Your HVAC System

Some warranties require you to register your HVAC system within a specific time frame after installing it at your home or business. This is generally an easy process and can often be done online, so make sure to register your unit if needed.

Self-Repairs Will Void a Warranty

Repairing your unit should never be a DIY project. Doing so will run the risk of the work being done incorrectly. If you fail to fix your unit correctly, this will most likely void the warranty. Hire a service professional for all HVAC repairs.

Improperly Installed or Replaced Units

If you or someone else takes on an HVAC installation or replacement project and fails to adequately follow the necessary steps, you will likely void the manufacturer’s warranty. Using parts that differ from the original manufacturer can also void the warranty.

You Damage the Unit

Often, HVAC warranties are only valid in cases of natural, premature issues. If you damage the unit yourself, you risk invalidating your warranty and paying for repairs yourself.

You Neglected to Maintain Your System

Routine maintenance is key to system upkeep. If you fail to have your unit regularly tuned up by a qualified professional and your system malfunctions, the manufacturer may choose not to validate the warranty. Some even require you to document your maintenance services.
