Do You Know What’s Covered Under Your Manufacturer Warranty?
We’ve passed the halfway point of winter, but cold weather will still be lingering around for a while. If your furnace is struggling to keep you warm, you could find yourself requiring furnace repairs before spring comes. Remember, before you call for service—make sure you know the terms of your manufacturer warranty so you’re not spending money on replacement parts that should be covered.
When you install a new furnace or air conditioner—the installing contractor should leave you with a manual which confirms the manufacturer warranty. This document will outline which parts are covered and for how long. Remember that manufacturer warranties usually only cover the cost of the replacement part—not the labour required to install them.
To provide the best protection, we always recommended homeowners enroll in a service plan. For example, when you enroll in a Martino Protection Plan, an annual tune-up is included and we’ll provide the required warranty validation paperwork. In addition to priority service, plan members also receive up to $1,500 in repair coverage. A service plan combined with the manufacturer warranty can provide a complete protection package for your heating and cooling systems. To view a list of our Protection Plans, click here.
Keep Manufacturer Warranties Valid
To keep your manufacturer warranty valid, please ensure that you register the equipment once it’s installed. The installation company can provide you with additional information on how this process works. In addition, many manufacturers require professional annual maintenance to keep warranties valid. Please be sure that you understand all the requirements to keep your warranty valid.
