If you recently purchased a new air conditioning and heating system and are now selling your home, you are probably wondering whether or not the warranty on your new HVAC system is transferrable to a new homeowner. Alternately, if you recently purchased a new home, you may be wondering what you need to do to transfer the A/C warranty into your name to ensure you receive coverage. We receive these questions on a daily basis and are happy to answer them for you.
Warranties are one of the main causes of customer frustration in the residential A/C industry. It is important to understand just because your air conditioning and heating system has a warranty, it does not mean that warranty will cover the cost to repair your system if it breaks down. HVAC warranties are called “limited warranties” because they do not cover everything that can go wrong with equipment at any time for any reason.

Overall, manufacturers’ limited parts warranties are just that – limited. Some of the manufacturers that we researched include Rheem, Lennox, Bryant/Carrier, Maytag, Goodman, Frigidaire, and Trane. Each manufacturer has a set of limitations for their warranties. In general, these warranties are meant to cover the part inside the new air conditioning unit for the original home owner (rental homes are not included), but can also be transferred to new home owner through a process online.
