Easy Mistakes That Can Void Your AC’s Warranty

Easy Mistakes That Can Void Your AC's Warranty

In most cases, when you invest in a new air conditioning system, you receive a warranty as well. This warranty covers certain repairs and the replacement of parts, and works to ensure your system functions efficiently for years to come. While your warranty touts numerous benefits to you and your AC system, you might be unaware that you could accidentally void your warranty without even knowing it. For this reason, it’s especially important that you take the time read through your warranty and avoid falling victim to making careless mistakes that could void your warranty like these:

Using Cheap Replacement Parts

When things go awry within your air conditioning system, you may fashion yourself a DIY wizard and attempt to fix the problem yourself using discount replacement parts. Even if you do garner successful results, you could have unknowingly voided your warranty in the process. Many manufactures of air conditioning systems recommend using original equipment manufacturer replacements parts as they’ve been thoroughly tested for both compatibility and functionality. Using off-brand replacement parts could leave you warranty-less and left footing the bill for any future replacements.

Not Performing Routine Maintenance

Just like your car, your air conditioning system needs routine maintenance in order to function its best. Not only can failing to provide routine maintenance decrease the lifespan of your system, but it can void your warranty too. For good measure, be sure to schedule a maintenance checkup with Engineered Air. When you do so, your visit will include filter cleaning, a performance check of your entire system, and one of our technicians will lubricate the unit’s motor and check the refrigerant levels.

Not Keeping a Log of Repairs

You may deem it unnecessary, but it’s important to keep a log of all of the repairs and services you have performed on your system. If there is ever a situation where you need to make a claim during the warranty period, you will have proof that all of the terms were met.
