Let’s be honest, things just aren’t made like they used to be! Everywhere around us we see this happening and truth is HVAC equipment is no different, and every year prices still go up.
You’re making a huge investment and the equipment comes with a warranty, and like everybody we expect that warranty to be honored. But the future may not be so nice, you should take into consideration that improperly installed equipment breaks down more frequently. With the vast amount of poorly installed jobs warranty calls are on the rise, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the manufactures start sending a Rep out to check that the equipment was installed properly. If you or the installing company dont have the proper information you could be out of luck.
This is just one more reason why we do heat loads calcs, size our ducts properly and test everything when done. We are the only company in the Motherlode doing this, this is also why we can offer 5 year labor warranties on qualified jobs.
Currently, Carrier offers 10 years parts, 10 years compressor, 20 years heat exchanger on most products.
