Home Warranties Cover Old HVAC

Along with plumbing and electrical, the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system is one of a home’s most critical infrastructural components. The effects of a failing HVAC system can be more severe than just discomfort in the heat or cold. An improperly ventilated or climate-controlled house can stress building materials, promote mold and dust, and prematurely wear home appliances and systems.

HVAC systems are as complex and expensive as they are important. This leads many homeowners to invest in a home warranty with HVAC coverage to ensure prompt and affordable maintenance and repair. The availability of HVAC home warranty coverage is a given for newly built or renovated homes, but buyers of homes with older HVAC systems often wonder if they are eligible for coverage.

Fortunately, HVAC systems for homes of all ages can be protected with home warranty coverage.

Will Home Warranty Cover Old HVAC?

Yes, you can find home warranty coverage for older HVAC systems. Liberty Home Guard will not refuse coverage because of the age of your HVAC system—or any other appliances or system, for that matter. When searching for warranty coverage, the age of the appliance or system is usually less important than its current condition. Let’s take a closer look at the home warranty process to better explain why this is.

How Do Home Warranties Work?

A home warranty is sometimes better thought of as a service contract. The homeowner pays a monthly or yearly premium, and the warranty provider agrees to maintain, service, repair, and even replace covered items in return. A detailed policy from a trustworthy provider will save the homeowner money over time.

Warranty providers like Liberty Home Guard will cover almost any of your home systems and appliances, be they large or small. It’s common for a policy to cover a home’s plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems, and major kitchen and laundry appliances. More thorough plans can include electronics protection and home maintenance services, such as gutter cleaning.

The age of your appliances, devices, or systems usually does not matter. It’s also fine if your appliance’s manufacturer’s warranty has already expired—in fact, home warranties are more useful after that point. What can affect coverage eligibility is the condition of your appliance or system. If something you own is already broken or has a preexisting condition, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to find coverage until the issue is fixed. In other words, don’t expect to purchase a home warranty to cheaply repair your refrigerator after it has stopped working correctly.

Does Home Warranty Cover AC Unit Repair?

Not all homeowners have all-in-one HVAC systems. Many people, of course, use AC window units or wall-mounted appliances.

Some homeowners wonder if AC units can be covered by home warranty plans, since units are often less expensive and not usually built into the structure of the home. Even if some people understand that new AC units are eligible for coverage, they’re still left wondering: Does home warranty cover old AC unit repair and maintenance?

Rest assured, Liberty Home Guard can cover your AC units, even if they’re a few years old. As is the case with other appliances and systems in your home, home warranty air conditioner repair is a great way to save time and money.
