Avoid Voiding Your Air Conditioner Warranty


A good warranty is one factor many of our Cincinnati area customers consider when shopping for a new air conditioner. Your system’s warranty has the potential to save you quite a bit of money, should air conditioner problems arise during the warranty period.

Air conditioner warranties aren’t a “fix AC issues free” pass – depending on the terms of your particular warranty, there are likely conditions you must follow to keep from voiding it. While terms vary from one warranty provider to the next, below are some of the costly mistakes homeowners make which can void their air conditioner warranty.

Forgetting to register your air conditioner warranty. If your new air conditioner came with a warranty or you purchased an extended warranty, it’s likely that you must register it within a certain timeframe or the warranty will not be validated.
Choosing an unqualified air conditioner installer. Improper air conditioner installation not only may cause poor system performance and increased energy consumption, but may also void your warranty. Protect your new air conditioner initially and in the future by selecting a licensed, NATE-certified HVAC contractor to perform your system installation.
Performing your own repairs. Even if you feel skilled enough to do so, performing your own air conditioner repairs may not be wise. Many warranties require system repairs be made only by an authorized HVAC contractor, using the manufacturer’s replacement parts. Doing the work yourself or using parts manufactured by a different company can void your warranty protection for future repairs.
Foregoing preventative air conditioner maintenance. Air conditioner manufacturers recognize that yearly preventative maintenance greatly impacts the system’s ability to perform properly, and many stipulate that annual tune-ups are required to uphold equipment warranties. If you neglect your air conditioner, system repairs may not be covered by your warranty – make sure to keep a record of maintenance services, including receipts, to support your warranty claim if necessary.

Don’t risk voiding that valuable air conditioner warranty – call Nelson Comfort today for quality, quick air conditioner installation, repairs, and preventative maintenance for homes and businesses in the Cincinnati area.
