Your home comfort equipment has always been vital to your quality of life, but these days it also has a huge impact on your wallet. Your monthly energy bills are affected as much as your daily routine when your A/C system isn’t running efficiently. When it comes to something so important, you need to do everything you can to protect it.
When upgrading your air conditioner, you need to choose the best equipment for your home and have it installed and maintained properly, but it doesn’t stop there. You also need the right warranty to ensure you get the most out of your investment.
Here are your HVAC warranty options:
- Basic – With this option, most parts and the compressor are covered for 5-10 years, depending on the equipment you purchase. The heat exchanger is usually covered for 20 years. You do not need to register to activate these warranties for Lennox products, but other brands may require registration.
- Limited Extended – These warranties offer supplemental coverage to add to the basic warranties. Typically, they cover the parts and compressor for an additional 5-10 years and the heat exchanger for 20 more years or for the life of the equipment. For all brands, including Lennox, you need to activate this coverage, usually within 60 days of installation.
- Complete Care Extended – There are various options for this coverage, depending on the equipment you own. No matter the brand, you will have all service, repairs and parts covered without any deductible. You can choose terms from 3-12 years. These warranties also improve the value of your home because they’re fully transferable if you decide to sell.
All plans are 100-percent insured. Just make sure you speak with your HVAC provider about the best HVAC warranty for your needs. Also ask about what is required to maintain the warranty so you don’t accidentally do something that will negate the agreement.
