Warranty or Guarantee: What’s the difference?

Installing a new air conditioner, furnace, and other similar equipment is not like a trip to the grocery store. There’s a larger significant financial investment required and with that, the investor (aka homeowner), usually wants some sort of assurance that their investment is going to be well spent.

You’ve probably heard from multiple companies and even found little pieces of paper inside packaging talking about warranties and guarantees. But what are they really? Is a guarantee the same as a warranty? Read more

Product Registration For All Major Furnace Manufacturers

product-registration-furnace-air-conditioner-warranty-manufacturer-product

Product registration is a big deal for manufacturers because it gives them a better idea of who’s using their product, how it performs when used by a consumer, and gives a direct line of communication to the consumer using their product.

Many manufacturers will even include perks or bonuses for registering your product.

Furnace manufacturers are the same. It is extremely helpful for them when homeowners register their new equipment.

Many manufacturers will even extend certain parts of the standard warranty (sometimes called, out-of-the-box warranty) upon completion of registering your equipment. For example, Amana doubles the parts warranty from 5 to 10 years on select equipment we install.

Now the idea of registering your new furnace or air conditioner may be overwhelming, but we’d like to make it a little simpler for you. (We complete all of this for homeowners who have new furnaces or air conditioners installed by us)

Below, is a list of all the major furnace manufacturers’  and a direct link to the product registration found on their website. Read more

Save Hundreds on Your Energy Bill By Doing This One Thing

In the colder months there’s money to be saved on your energy bill by lowering the temperature of your home while you sleep. Keeping your home 5-10 degrees colder for 8 hours a day (while you’re sleeping) can result in big savings for you.22

Set a daily reminder on your phone to do this before you go to bed or install a setback thermostat (programmable).

To give you an example, we keep our office set at 70 degrees from 6:00 AM–5:00 PM and lower it to 55 degrees from 5:00 PM–6:00 AM while no one is in the office.

The following are a handful of ways you can expect a humidifier to help you keep your home more comfortable. Read more
