An AC Unit with a Lifetime Unit Replacement Warranty Simplifying the complex AC Unit warranty.
Most new air conditioning systems come with a “limited warranty”. This is one of the biggest misconceptions for homeowners when purchasing a new air-conditioning unit. The misconception that customers have is that if anything goes wrong with their new AC system that they are covered for life with these Limited Warranties. All manufacturers offer what they call extended warranties and labor warranties. These are the important warranties that need to be considered when buying a new A/C system.
Arizona rules and regulations for contractors require that the A/C contractor stands behind the installed workmanship for a period of one year (Precision Air and Heating doubles that with a 1 yr Workmanship warranty).
The manufacturer may give you a parts warranty of 5 years or 10 years depending on which system you buy. If you are buying any individual piece of equipment, generally the warranty is only one year to five on condensing units. Labor to replace a part that fails within one year is generally paid for by the dealer, manufacturers generally will only pay the dealer for labor up to 60 days, unless there is a high rate of failure on one particular part.
In addition, many customers think that buying the highest price system gives them the best quality; this is not necessarily the case. We recommend our customers purchase a good quality piece of equipment so long as it includes a solid warranty for the length of time they need it.
Typically, the longer the warranty, the better the quality. If you are considering a high-cost replacement part such as a compressor, a fan motor, and evaporator coil, condensing coil or circuit board, these kinds of parts are typically warrantied under your five or 10-year parts warranty but the labor for the replacement is really covered only under labor warranty. If you are confused as to all the warranty options and what fits for you, so are a lot of people. With limited warranties, and questions about what is covered vs what is not it gets confusing.
At Precision Air and Heating, we offer our Precision Line of HAVC equipment with a warranty that is a lifetime for the full replacement of the unit. Plus double the length of the Workmanship warranty. How’s that for simple?
