Air conditioning manufacturers now require that you have your air conditioner maintained to keep your warranty valid.
When you purchase a new HVAC system, you receive a warranty that covers certain HVAC repairs, replacement of major parts, guarantee of faulty equipment, etc. What you may not realize is that it’s possible to void that warranty, even accidentally, which could cause you to go through another pricey heating and air installation.
Here are some examples:
Lennox’s warranty card: “Failure to provide maintenance per Lennox instructions will void this warranty.”
Trane: “The Products must be properly installed, operated, and maintained by a licensed HVAC technician….. Failure to conform to such specifications and/or instructions shall void this limited warranty.”
Carrier is a bit more vague, but the effect is the same: “In addition to the routine maintenance that you perform, your home comfort system should be inspected regularly by a properly trained service technician.”
Lennox, Carrier, Trane and most other manufacturers state that the air conditioner should get professional maintenance annually. For heat pumps, they require you have it tuned up twice a year: once before summer and then again before winter. Without proper maintenance, you have greater potential for expensive HVAC repair, or may even need a new air conditioning install.
If you are considering a preventive maintenance plan on your system, whether it be 6 months or 6 years old, it is better to take action sooner rather than later. The longer you postpone performing regular check-up work on your heating and air, the more prone the equipment will be to unexpected breakdowns.
