So it’s the middle of summer and the worst thing that could possibly ever happen on a 40-degree day happens…you notice the air con isn’t working properly.
Maybe it’s not keeping the room as cold as it used to. Or there’s a funny burning smell coming from the unit. At this point you’ll probably be looking at air conditioning repair or at least an air conditioning service.
Whatever is causing the issue to your air con, it could be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. But like all warranties, there is a clear list of what is covered and what isn’t covered.
In this article, the experts at Acer Services take a look at what is and isn’t covered by your air conditioner warranty.
Of course, each manufacturer’s warranty will be different, but here’s a list of what generally won’t be covered.
Basically the warranty won’t cover any issue related to exposure, damage, obstruction or a build up of dirt.
The black marks seen here are actually ants that have been fried in an air con circuit board. This is a very common problem.
A typical Air Conditioner Warranty will only cover defective parts that are a direct error by the manufacturer.
Don’t worry, we can help! If there’s something wrong with your air con and you think it could be covered by the warranty, here’s what to do:
If one of our technicians are sent out to fix a unit and the issue is not covered by the Air Conditioner Warranty, then the service call has to be charged for.
This is why we recommend first calling Acer Services when you notice a problem so we can walk you through some common problems that you may be able to fix yourself.
If our technician is able to confirm it’s a warranty issue once they have done an on-site inspection, then the cost to fix the unit will be covered by the manufacturer.
