Common Ways that People Void their AC System’s Warranty

When you purchase a brand new air conditioning system, you are going to get the warranty that comes with it. The warranty is typically going to be coverage for repairs and replacement of the main areas of the system. The goal with the warranty is to promise you that the system will function as you would expect it to over a set period. If you have faulty equipment installed, for example, this will allow you to have it replaced with a new unit or system. One thing Jacksonville AC owners forget is that it is possible to void the air conditioning system warranty.

Read the Details

The best thing you can do for yourself out of the gate is to know the particulars of the warranty. Make sure you have a firm understanding of what is covered and what is not. Also, gain a grasp over what you would have to do to void the warranty. The devil is in the details with these types of things. Warranties can provide excellent coverage layers as long as they are utilized correctly!

Register the Warranty

The first mistake people make to void their air conditioning system warranty is failing to register it. When you purchase a central air conditioning system, you get it installed and you turn it on! You are not thinking about registering the product with the manufacturer. Do you want to enjoy it now, right?

A void of the warranty can typically occur when you fail to register the warranty before it is in use. Getting that warranty registered can usually be accomplished online. Once it is all in the system, you are free to crank the cold air.

Failure to Use OEM Parts

You may have already run into an issue with your system or something was not covered by the warranty. You replace it with a generic brand product you find thinking nothing of it. Did you know this could void the warranty? You always want to use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts in your Jacksonville AC system if you need a repair. These parts are tested for compatibility and functionality with your particular system. If you run into something that would have been covered by your warranty, but have generic parts, your warranty could be voided.

Annual Maintenance

Are you doing everything needed from a yearly maintenance perspective? Your warranty will cover a lot. If the system breaks down because you ignored having the filter changed for a few years, it is your fault not the manufacturer! A warranty is usually going to insist on this, plus other routine maintenance like a tune-up.

A manufacturer warranty that comes with your air conditioning system can be truly valuable. You want to have an understanding of what it covers, as well as what you must do to keep it in effect. Do want you can not to void that warranty and keep your Jacksonville AC system protected!

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
