Accidentally Void Your Air Conditioner’s Warranty

If you just replaced your Bradenton air conditioning unit, you don’t want all that money to go out the window. When you purchased that new air conditioning unit, you received a warranty that covered certain repairs, and replacements of major parts and much more, lasting for much of the useful life of the unit. What some people don’t realize, is that if you don’t take several important steps, you can accidentally void your air conditioner’s warranty.

Here are some major ways to accidentally void your air conditioner’s warranty:

Replacement Parts that are Off-Brand

While most third party parts are usually safe to use, manufactures want you to use their original parts, and using off-brand replacement parts will void a warranty.

Installation

If you read the warranty, it should state that the AC unit be installed by a professional. If the unit isn’t installed correctly, this will void the warranty, so always make sure that a professional is installing your new equipment.

Maintenance

The easiest way to make sure that your home A/C maintenance is done correctly is to have it performed regularly by a qualified air conditioning specialist. Most warranties require annual maintenance, and if not done, will most likely cause the warranty to become void.

Documentation of Maintenance

Keep your records! Keep all the records of the purchase of your new air conditioning unit, and all documentation of regular maintenance. If any issues should arise, you have the documentation to back up your claim.
