Forgetting the HVAC maintenance can end up being a costly mistake for those of us who have purchased an HVAC warranty.
I ended up finding this out the hard way myself because I forgot to get our HVAC system maintained on a regular basis after we purchased it. One of the main reasons that I decided to buy this particular HVAC system in the first place was the fact that it came with a really great HVAC warranty. Then I ended up voiding the warranty without even meaning to do it! When I realized what had happened, I was so mad at myself that I didn’t know what to do. I thought that I was doing really well in life at that point. I mean, I thought that I had it all together but that wasn’t the case at all. I was trying to make sure that I was juggling everything like work, the kids, my marriage, and everything else. I thought that I was doing okay, too! I guess I wasn’t doing as well as I thought I was, though, because I missed out on something that was really important. I missed out on getting our HVAC system maintained when it was supposed to be! The way that the HVAC warranty was set up, you had to get the furnace looked at regularly by a qualified heating and technician. Without them signing their name and turning in the paperwork, the warranty was voided automatically. What a waste of money that ended up being for me! I still can’t believe that I did that.
