When your air conditioner is not working properly, you hope for an inexpensive solution. Then you remember—your air conditioner came with a warranty! You might hope that the warranty covers the problem, but not every issue will make the cut.
The best advice we can give you is this: read your warranty. Most warranties have terms and conditions for what is and what is not covered.
Some Common Language
While we cannot offer up the specifics of your warranty, we do know that a lot of warranties require that you maintain your system regularly. Typically, the manufacturer requires that you care for your air conditioning system as described in your manual. And your manual usually states that you must have your air conditioner installed by a qualified technician and maintained regularly, and you must change the filter as well.
Be sure you’re keeping up with maintenance from the very beginning of your AC system’s lifespan. This can help you to save money in the long run by preserving the condition of your air conditioner and helping to keep costs low.
What May Be Exempt
Not every repair is going to be covered in your warranty. The actual labor for the repair or diagnosis may not fall under warranty. And if you have replaced a part with a non-approved component that’s not from your manufacturer, or with the help of a non-qualified technician, this component likely will not fall under warranty.
Be sure you read your warranty, register your system if necessary, and know how to care for it in the long term. Call a local technician the moment something malfunctions, and they may be able to help you figure out if the problem is covered.
