When you’re investing in something like a central air conditioning unit, it’s important to choose one that comes with a solid warranty to protect your purchase. Trane, a leader in heating and cooling and one of our top brands, has created a new warranty program for its air conditioner systems, and we’re here to help you understand it.
Types of Warranties Available
Trane home comfort systems come with several options for warranties. All products include a base limited warranty that goes into effect for units that either weren’t initially registered or that were registered 60 days or longer after the installation.
This warranty covers parts failures related to manufacturer defects, but only the parts and not the labor. This is typically a five-year warranty, but that may vary by product.
The registered limited warranty is for those who register their Trane system within 60 days of installation. As with the base warranty, it will pay for parts that fail due to defects but not the necessary labor to replace them. The bonus is that this warranty can last up to 10 years on many units.
Homeowners can also purchase an optional extended warranty that will cover manufacturer defects, including parts and sometimes labor, as well as other issues that may arise. The best thing to do is consult your dealer.
No DIY or Handyman Installations
Trane takes its products seriously, which is why the company only sells through licensed independent dealers and HVAC contractors. That’s also why they stipulate that for any Trane warranty to be valid, your system must be installed by a licensed HVAC contractor approved by the manufacturer.
If you install your own system or have it installed by your friend who “sometimes does HVAC jobs,” you will not be eligible for any kind of warranty, and you will be responsible for any breakdowns and repairs, even if they’re related to a manufacturer defect.
Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about who will install your new system. The experts at Elite Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning are your first choice for expert Las Vegas air conditioning installation, including new top-of-the-line Trane home comfort systems. Ask about our financing options and HVAC packages, as well as maintenance and extended warranties that may be available. Whatever you need, we’ve got you covered when it comes to keeping your home cool.
Don’t Forget Maintenance
Finally, you’ll have to maintain your system and keep it in good condition over time. If you neglect routine maintenance, it will be much easier for the manufacturer to say that they can’t determine whether the issue you’re having was a defect or due to a lack of care, which means you won’t be able to get your warranty claims paid.
When you choose Elite Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning, you’ll get the comfort solutions you need with the warranty you deserve for total peace of mind. That way, you can stay cool no matter how hot that Vegas sun gets. Reach out now to learn more.
