Registering your HVAC system goes with the territory when installing new equipment. The warranty is like an insurance policy. It’s there to protect you financially in the rare event of breakdowns or malfunctions.

You’ll need the model and serial numbers for the air handler and the outdoor condenser, along with the name, address, and phone number for the HVAC contractor who installed the equipment. Many HVAC manufacturers recommend that you go to their websites to complete the registration.

It’s instant and convenient, and there’s no risk of it being lost in the mail. Even easier is the contractor who will take care of the registration for you. Jackson and Sons handles this process for their customers. Be sure the paperwork the installer gives you includes instructions on what the manufacturer requires to keep the warranty active.

The Pros

  • Registering your HVAC products activates the warranty, which is invaluable in equipment as expensive and complicated as HVAC systems.
  • You’ll receive product updates. Besides learning about the latest developments that increase efficiency and comfort, you’ll receive notices about recalls. They’re few and far between, but early notification lets you schedule the repair work promptly.
  • Should you sell your home while the warranty is valid, you can typically transfer it to the buyers, which could give you an advantage when selling. It also gives the buyers the assurance that problems during the warranty period will be quickly taken care of.

The Cons

  • It takes a few minutes. However, when you calculate the time it takes to register the product compared to how much extra you’d have to earn to cover a repair or replacement, registering your HVAC system is one of the best uses of your time.

As the owner of a new heating and cooling system, don’t underestimate the value of registering your HVAC warranty. To learn more about its advantages, contact Jackson & Sons, providing HVAC services for eastern North Carolina homeowners.
