What Type of Warranty is Available for a New Air Conditioner Replacement?

When you purchase a new air conditioner, it's important to understand the two warranties that come with it. The manufacturer's warranty typically comes with a completely new system or appliance and usually lasts for one year. It covers the new system or device and is not transferable. If your air conditioner isn't cooling your home as expected, you may be tempted to ignore it, thinking it's only a few degrees and not worth calling a contractor.

If you have an issue with your air conditioner and it was bought and installed within the past year, we recommend that you contact the manufacturer first. Let's explore how a 2- to 10-year Homebuyer Warranty (2 to 10 HBW) home warranty can help you if your air conditioner malfunctions. Generally, the average air conditioner has a lifespan of 10 to 15 years, so this type of warranty can be beneficial if your unit breaks down during this period. However, home warranties don't cover portable appliances, so if you're looking for air conditioning insurance for your window units, the warranty won't cover them.

Finally, if your air conditioner is still covered by the manufacturer's warranty when it breaks down, you would use the manufacturer's warranty, not the home warranty. This is important to remember as it can save you money in the long run.
