Phoenix Heating and Air Conditioning Warranties 101

It seems like everyone is offering warranties on purchases these days – from televisions to cars, to alarm clocks and computers.

When deciding whether to invest in a warranty, there are several things to consider. Most people invest in warranties for big-ticket items, and there aren’t many bigger tickets than your home air conditioning and heating system.

Manufacturer Warranties

Most of the top air conditioning manufacturers offer a standard warranty with the purchase of a new system. Although the coverage can vary by brand, the warranty you’ll receive from the manufacturer will be a limited warranty, meaning it just covers parts replacement should a part break within the specified warranty coverage timeframe.

Unfortunately, many consumers fail to recognize that there is more to replacing a broken part than just the cost of the part.

Extended Warranties

Think about when you take your car in for a repair. When you look at your bill for replacement of a part, there are often other associated expenses such as labor and parts disposal.

Replacing a part on a Phoenix heating and air conditioning system is similar. While the limited warranty from the manufacturer covers part replacement, it doesn’t cover associated costs such as labor, EPA charges, refrigerant, recovery fees and handling fees. That’s why it’s worth your time and money to invest in an extended warranty so that you’re not caught unawares when your system is in need of repairs.

The Chas Roberts Solution

To give you some peace of mind, Chas Roberts Air Conditioning and Plumbing offers two extended labor warranty options for your Phoenix heating and air conditioning system.

The five-year labor warranty covers the cost of labor associated with repairs for the first five years of the system after installation. The $1,150 per system price includes an annual maintenance visit (required for the warranty). For a little extra, you can get the five-year labor coverage plus Chas’s Comfort Assurance Program which provides two annual maintenance visits per year instead of just the required one.

Chas Roberts’ 10-year labor warranty includes two maintenance visits per year. This warranty is only sold to homeowners who have registered their equipment with the manufacturer after purchase.
