An HVAC system’s warranty presents a contractual guarantee to consumers. The company backs a product’s manufacturing and quality and will cover certain repairs if the unit suffers any problems. Consumers must adhere to the contract’s terms, or else the warranty may become void. There are a few common mistakes customers make that render a warranty null.
Failure to Perform a Tune-Up
The warranty may stipulate homeowners must request a professional service visit and tune-up at least once a year. Failure to do so and not keeping records of the visits could release a manufacturer from warranty responsibilities.
Do-it-yourself maintenance steps might not only not count, but they could also void the warranty. Homeowners should be careful about tinkering with a heating system for safety reasons, too.
Be sure to hire a technician best-suited for performing the job. A local handyperson could improperly install parts, resulting in damage and a loss of warranty coverage. Review the warranty terms to ensure the right pro gets hired for the job.

Not Registering the Warranty
Failing to send back those postcard forms that allow someone to register a warranty could be a highly regrettable oversight. Failing to register a warranty means there’s no record on file, and no warranty terms exist. Does the company provide online registration? That option might be available unless the time limit expired. A company may only afford a limited number of days to register. Once the time expires, so does the opportunity for a warranty.
People make poor decisions, including ones that could cause deliberate damage to a furnace. Kicking the system out of frustration has consequences, and voiding the warranty might be the least dangerous result.
