Air Conditioning >> Extended Warranty
Why Should you purchase an extended warraty plan?
Hundred of thousands of people every year buy new HVAC systems and are faced with the question. Should I buy the extended warranty? Well that is a great question there are a lot of things to consider when it comes to spending the money on an HVAC extended warranty. The most important and most often overlooked is the "piece of mind. " When you purchase the extended warranty you are giving yourself the luxury of not having to worry about spending money to fix it for however long your warranty coverage is for. If you find value in the piece of mind then the warranty is always worth the money.
When you purchase your extended warranty that is backed by the manufacturer there are a lot of things that they consider in coming up with the price. The most important is how close the system is to corrosive environments like salt water. The closer you live to the ocean the more you are going to pay for your extended warranty coverage. So for example to purchase an extented warranty on Air Conditioning Maine, it will cost you a bit more than an extended warranty on and air conditioning system in Ohio. Another thing that they consider is the cost of the system that you purchased. The more expensive the system the more expensive the warranty coverage is going to be.
One major point of confusion is what the extended warranty covers. When you buy a new HVAC system most of them come with a ten year parts warranty. What is not covered is the labor to diagnose and replace the broken part. So basically you are buying an extended labor warranty. Some people do not realize that the parts warranty comes with the new HVAC system. Depending on the brand of system sometimes the coverage that comes with the system is for five years and when you buy the extended warranty the coverage extends to ten years.
In summery the price is about the only thing I have not covered. If your HVAC system cost you between $3,500 and $5,000 I would advise you that a fair price for an extended labor warranty should be between six hundred and 800 hundred. For Air Conditioning systems that cost between $5,000 and $9,000 you should pay between 900 hundred to eleven hundred for your extended labor warranty coverage. Anything over eleven hundred dollars is going to be a hard sell because there are not many repairs that cost that amount of money. Chances are if you need to spend that kind of money to fix your system you should just consider replacing it.
