Stay Ahead of Your AC Warranty During the Hot Summer

Having an AC warranty can provide you with peace of mind if something goes wrong with your HVAC system. This can help ensure that you have repairs done promptly so that your Yuma home stays cool this summer. The following tips can help you get the most out of your warranty.

Register Your AC

After your AC has been installed, you should register it right away. Not registering your HVAC system could void your warranty or reduce the amount of time it’s good for. Keep in mind that you most likely have a deadline by which you have to register your AC, which is usually a short window of time; often 60 or 90 days after installation.

Avoid Off-Brand Parts for Repairs

If your HVAC system ends up needing repairs, you might choose to do them on your own. If you do, you should note that an AC warranty can become void if you use off-brand replacement parts. These parts are often cheaper, but they also typically are of much lower quality. Having a professional HVAC technician handle repairs using the right parts can help you avoid running into problems with your AC warranty.

Schedule Regular Maintenance

Some warranties require routine maintenance on HVAC systems. Without this maintenance, your warranty could become void. Even if your warranty doesn’t require regular HVAC maintenance, it’s still a good idea to schedule it. Maintenance visits play an important role in keeping your HVAC system up and running over the years. These visits can also help lower the likelihood that you’ll need repairs. HVAC technicians can find small issues early before they potentially become bigger ones. During these visits, technicians can also clean HVAC parts, tighten components as needed, and ensure that your entire HVAC system is in good condition.
