3. How Do I Keep My Lennox or Other HVAC Warranty Valid?
There are essentially three things you must do to keep most HVAC warranties valid. First, you must purchase and install your new HVAC unit through certified professionals. Each manufacturer will often list several in your area. For example, we at Vital Air are listed under certified Lennox professionals on their official site. Second, you must perform all required maintenance tasks. Be sure to keep records of this should the manufacturer asks. And lastly, all repairs must be done by a certified professional in order to keep the warranty valid. You may choose any professional after the warranty expires.
