Can a home warranty cover an old HVAC unit?

As appliances like HVAC units age, it becomes more important to stay on top of the unit’s maintenance. You might find yourself wondering and even worrying if your HVAC unit’s old age will affect the terms of your home warranty coverage.

 So, are old HVAC units covered by home warranties?

 Yes! Home Warranty One covers all appliances that you choose in your coverage plan, meaning you don’t have to worry about your appliances’ old age to get them fixed or replaced according to your home warranty contract. 

Choosing a home warranty to cover an old HVAC unit

When you sign up for a home warranty, you should choose all of your home’s areas that need uptime. You can select your standard appliances, including the washing machine and dryer, stove, cooktop, dishwasher, built-in microwave oven, and garbage disposal. When choosing standard systems, you can also include your heating system, water heater, plumbing system, ductwork, HVAC, or other cooling units and your electrical system. Even better, there’s additional coverage for other items like your swimming pool or hot tub, sprinkler system, and well.

A home warranty’s monthly cost becomes well worth it when you compare it to the steep prices of suddenly needing repair or replacing large home appliances, like an HVAC unit.

 What you should get out of your home warranty coverage 

 There are a few items you should never neglect with any home warranty contract, including:

  1. Coverage requires 30 days to begin

When you sign up for home warranty protection with most companies, there is a 30-day grace period after the initial payment before your coverage will start.

2. Keep track of past repairs

Should a problem arise with your HVAC system, you should have any documents relating to previous repairs on hand. Our team at Home Warranty One will request these records for the asset’s history to provide coverage for repairs or replacements.
