You’ve spent a lot of time and money to find the right furnace for your New Hope, Pennsylvania, home. Your energy costs have gone down, your home has been more comfortable, and winters are much more pleasant. While you’re enjoying your new furnace, make sure you don’t void the warranty.
How to Void Your Warranty
There are a few easy ways to void your warranty. The quickest and most significant way is to neglect yearly furnace maintenance. This doesn’t refer to just any old maintenance, though. Before you think of doing it yourself, you’ll need to hire a professional to service your furnace. You’ll also need to hold on to proof that a technician has maintained the unit each year. When you need a repair done, whether it’s covered by the warranty or not, you’ll also need to make sure you use the right replacement parts and have a professional make the repair.
To make sure you’re upholding your furnace warranty, take a look at the paperwork. Somewhere in there you’ll find a section that discusses regular maintenance. This will give you the details of how to approach repairs as well as what records you need to keep. Simply failing to keep your records could void your warranty.
Why Regular Maintenance Matters
Furnaces are built to last for years. A warranty is a guarantee that as long as you’re taking care of your furnace, it should continue to work the way it’s supposed to. When you don’t perform regular maintenance or when you use off-market parts and install them yourself, the manufacturer can no longer guarantee that your furnace will continue to work properly.
Regular maintenance serves several purposes:
- It keeps your furnace protected from dust, dirt, and debris.
- It helps the parts last longer.
- It greatly increases the chances of finding problems before they become big issues.
- It helps your furnace work efficiently.
Keep your furnace maintained regularly, and make sure your warranty is available when you need it. Contact Custom Aire Air Conditioning, Heating & Duct Cleaning to schedule your annual maintenance: (215) 638-1800.
