I am a professional heating and cooling professional, and my specialty is air conditioner and heater installation, and I have spent countless hours in people’s homes installing their brand new central a/c, boiler, or even whole home air purification system, and when I am finished I regularly ask “would you like to purchase the Heating and Air Conditioning warranty for your unit?” Most people stare at me blankly then ask “do I absolutely need an Heating and Air Conditioning warranty?” I would like to answer this question at length, but yes, it is important to have an Heating and Air Conditioning warranty because you never know what will go wrong with your central a/c or heater the next several years.
- Having an Heating and Air Conditioning warranty means that major repairs and minor repairs that occur due to an Heating and Air Conditioning professional’s mistake, are covered for free, many times, when a heater, central air conditioner, or whole-home air purification system has a problem, it is due to a mistake by the Heating and Air Conditioning professional.
A Heating and Air Conditioning warranty is also good for peace of mind. Many times clients will be worried about little things because it costs a lot of money to get their mini split a/c, or their whole home air purification system installed, and because they don’t have the warranty, they are constantly paranoid about their Heating and Air Conditioning unit. Getting the warranty will provide peace of mind. Lastly, it is important to get the warranty because it will save you money on heating and cooling repairs, and tune ups. It is good to get your central air conditioner ductwork checked and sealed every few weeks, and this checkup is not super expensive, but the cost adds up. Getting the Heating and Air Conditioning warranty will cover the cost of getting your ductwork sealed, and an annual central air conditioner and heater inspection.
