Are you looking to make a new investment on your home’s HVAC equipment? You will want your new equipment to operate efficiently and last as long as possible. HVAC performance depends on a lot of factors but one major factor is whether the system was installed properly. A great installation usually results in great performance for many years. A sorry installation usually results in… well sorry performance.
As a homeowner without the proper training, it’ll be a difficult task to verify your contractor’s installation was performed correctly. So one of the best measures you can take to protect yourself is to ensure the company you choose to install your HVAC equipment, offers you a solid guarantee in the event things don’t go as planned. After all, with replacement HVAC systems ranging from $15,000 -$40,000 it’s only wise to protect such a large investment.
HVAC Guarantee or Warranty: Is there a difference?
You’ve probably heard from HVAC companies and even seen ads talking about warranties and guarantees. But what are these really? Is a guarantee the same as a warranty?
The short answer is, no. While both offer some peace of mind, they are not identical.
Guarantees generally come with a product or service at no additional cost, often in the form of a promise from the contractor that if something goes wrong, they will repair the damage, offer a replacement or give you a refund.
On the other hand, a warranty is a legal agreement between you and the manufacturer that makes the manufacturer responsible for fixing or replacing a product that is faulty or breaks down due to no fault of the buyer or installer. These usually have additional stipulations such as requiring you register your equipment with the manufacturer within a specified timeframe.
