What Does an HVAC Warranty Include?

When it comes to HVAC systems, warranties are an essential factor to consider. Manufacturer warranties usually cover any component of the machine that bears the brand name, while labor warranties cover service charges, labor costs, and fees associated with installing that part. Home warranties, on the other hand, are designed to cover the maintenance and repair of systems and appliances due to normal wear and tear and related breakdowns over time. The systems covered by your warranty depend on the type of warranty you choose.

Most warranty companies offer policies that cover only appliances, only systems, or both. If you need to cover your air conditioning system, make sure to select a package that includes it. Generally, HVAC warranties include central air conditioning units, heating systems, some wall heaters, water heaters, ducts and pipes, as well as the components that make the systems work such as thermostats. However, they don't usually cover portable appliances like window air conditioners. Equipment warranties cover faults or breakdowns related to a defective part.

For instance, if your system fails because the manufacturer installed a defective part during assembly (and that part is still under warranty), they will replace it at no cost. It is important to understand what is included in your HVAC warranty before making a purchase. Knowing what is covered can help you make an informed decision and ensure that you are getting the best value for your money. Additionally, it is important to read the fine print of any warranty agreement before signing it so that you know exactly what is covered and what is not.
