Preventative AC maintenance has a number of benefits. Regular inspections can catch small issues early before they become expensive repairs or cause potential unit failure. Tune-ups can increase efficiency and home comfort and annual service can help extend the system’s lifespan. Another reason to schedule annual maintenance is that many manufacturers require regular service to keep warranties valid.
What is a Manufacturer Warranty
New air conditioners come with a manufacturer warranty that covers the costs of replacement parts should they fail within a specified amount of time. Each manufacturer sets their own warranty policies, but generally, they last from 5 to 10 years. Manufacturer warranties can provide homeowners with significant savings for replacement parts so it’s important to keep them valid.
Why Annual Maintenance is Required
Air conditioners—and other HVAC systems—require regular maintenance to properly operate and manufacturers can’t guarantee the performance of their equipment if it is neglected. That’s why many manufacturers require annual maintenance to keep AC warranties valid. It’s important to note that you’ll need to have complete records for yearly maintenance if you want to file a claim.

|An additional tip to keep your AC manufacturer warranty valid.
Be sure to properly register the unit within the specified time. Registering your system can usually be done online and only requires minimal information like the model number, serial number and installation information that should have been provided by the HVAC company.
