After an investment in a new HVAC system, you’ll want to make sure that it lasts as long as possible. After all, you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars only to have the system go out in a few years’ time. One of the best ways to increase the lifespan of your HVAC system is to purchase the extended manufacturer’s or third-party warranty. Most AC service companies offer warranties on both the parts of the HVAC, and the labor to install, to ensure you’re as covered as possible. However, not everything that goes wrong with your AC will be covered under warranties.

What is Covered on an AC Parts Warranty?

Most AC service installers will offer a five-year warranty from the manufacturer. These warranties will cover problems that come up in defective parts or parts that go out early. Most manufacturers will also offer an extended warranty that goes up to ten years. Registering your HVAC system online is usually a requirement of the extended warranty and if you forget to do so, your problems might not be covered by the parts warranty.

What is Covered on An AC Labor Warranty?

Your AC service installation will usually include a warranty on the labor. Labor warranties could cover service calls, labor costs for future repairs, and gaps that the parts warranties won’t cover. Labor warranties cover the hourly charges from your AC service provider. This can save you a lot of money in the future if your AC goes out prematurely or you start experiencing problems with cooling or blowing.

The best option for homeowners is to purchase the extended warranties for both parts and labor. If you can finance the new AC system, the cost of the warranties can usually be included in the contract. This will save you money upfront to spend on other home renovation projects, while also ensuring you stay protected and your home stays cool.
