As homeowners begin to turn on their furnaces for the season, many wonder if their furnace is covered under any warranty. Many but not all furnaces have 5 year parts warranty, and usually at a minimum, 20 year heat exchanger warranty. Often the parts warranty can be extended to 10 years if the furnace is still owned by the original purchaser and if maintenance has been done annually.
Your service provider should be able to provide you with all that information, and if you purchased the furnace from new, the original paperwork should also reflect your warranties.
What Can I Do to Ensure My Warranty Stays Valid?
Most manufacturers now require that you have annual maintenance performed and documented by a licensed technician from an established provider in order to keep your furnace warranty valid. It’s also a great way to ensure that your unit is operating safely and efficiently. If you recently purchased a new home or you’re in the process of purchasing a new home, make sure the heating and cooling equipment warranties are transferred to your name. There may be a small fee associated with the transfer, but it’s nothing compared to the money you’ll save on repairs in the future should they be required.
