Registering Your New Product with a Manufacturer
When it comes to buying a new appliance like a Goodman furnace or a Coleman stove, you’ll likely get the option of adding on a manufacturer’s warranty. Before you get coverage, you have to register your product, and typically it has to be registered within 60 days of installation.
Let’s say you’ve just bought and installed a new Trane HVAC system. It only takes a moment to register your Trane warranty. Have your product information on hand, including serial numbers, model numbers and installation date, as well as your personal information.
Make sure you read the details of your new warranty plan, so you know what’s covered and what’s not. The average HVAC warranty comes with limited coverage on parts, lasting anywhere from one to 20 years. However, Trane warranties, like most appliance warranties, don’t cover damage or failure from everyday wear and tear. That’s why extended home warranties are best for protecting your appliances and systems for the long haul.
Choice Home Warranty offers year-long warranty plans that automatically renew and keep you covered long after the original manufacturer’s warranty has ended.
How Long Do Warranties Last?
Warranties may or may not come with a product or appliance. If you buy a blender, for instance, you may receive a one-year warranty with the product. If you buy a car, you can buy a warranty — also called a service plan — to protect against high automotive maintenance and/or repair costs.
Manufacturers offer basic limited warranties on certain products such as home appliances, electronics or home systems, as well as extended warranties. An extended warranty may or may not begin after the original warranty expires and only covers that product.
What if you buy a new refrigerator with an extended warranty, but your reliable stove breaks? What if the warranty doesn’t last as long as the product? When it comes to manufacturers’ warranties, the appliance will likely outlast the warranty. Here are some examples:
- Dishwashers typically last up to 12 years, and KitchenAid only offers a two-year limited warranty with the option of extending for three more years with limited coverage.
- Refrigerators typically last up to 17 years, and Whirlpool only offers a one-year full warranty and the option of extending for four more years with limited coverage.
- Clothes dryers typically last up to 13 years, and Maytag only offers a 10-year limited parts warranty.
If you buy a manufacturer’s warranty for your water heater that may last 10 or 12 years, and the warranty only lasts for six, you’ll end up paying extra for coverage, and in the end, the appliance may not even be covered when it needs a repair or replacement.***
