You received an AC warranty to cover various repair needs when you purchased your Metrowest Ocoee, FL, HVAC system. Learn what to avoid so that you don’t inadvertently void out your AC unit warranty protection.
Forgetting to Register Your Warranty
It’s easy to forget to register your HVAC system with the manufacturer in the excitement of using it for the first time. Don’t make this mistake because you might void the entire warranty and end up with a disappointing AC repair experience in the future.
Using Third-Party Replacement Parts
Don’t use off-brand parts when your HVAC system needs repairs done. Manufacturers might void the warranty if they find out you didn’t use OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts.
You may disagree with this stipulation because many off-brand parts will work perfectly fine. However, your manufacturer wants you to use parts it knows work best with their air conditioners.
Failure to Schedule Annual Maintenance
Make sure to schedule a regular tune-up after installing a new HVAC system. Not only will this keep your warranty agreement in place, but it will also benefit you in other ways.
Regular AC unit maintenance keeps your monthly power bills manageable because the process ensures that your HVAC system runs efficiently. Annual tune-ups also extend your system’s lifespan.
Failure to Keep Maintenance Records
You’ll need to show maintenance documentation when it’s time to use your warranty. Safely store documents that pertain to all matters relating to HVAC system maintenance.
Make sure you have records that prove annual tune-up appointments. File away receipts that show regular air filter replacement. Don’t allow your warranty to get voided simply because you can’t find paperwork when the manufacturer asks to see it.
