Home buyers have a lot to think about when it comes to crafting offers and counteroffers for existing homes. HVAC installation and repair in Green Bay is a major consideration, and buyers can protect themselves with one simple addition to the negotiation process.
The key element to protecting your investment is understanding the warranty that comes with an HVAC system does not transfer to a new owner. That is where home warranties have become popular as an alternative. Healthy Home Heating & Cooling, LLC, the specialists in HVAC installation and repair in Green Bay, advises secondary owners to review warranty coverage during negotiations.
“Most heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems provide parts and labor warranty coverage for the original owner only,” explains Nick Conner, owner of Healthy Home Heating & Cooling. “This is especially important to know when dealing with furnaces that are lower quality, even if they are relatively new. Emergency furnace repair in Green Bay is not an inexpensive proposition, and the warranty would not cover this for a secondary owner.”
HVAC Installation and Repair as Part of the Offer
The issue of a furnace is a common negotiation topic during the home selling process. If part of the sale is a promise by the seller to install a new furnace, the potential buyer has two primary options:
- Request that the buyer be allowed to register the unit and receive full warranty coverage as the original owner.
- Take the money the seller is footing for the unit in closing, with the buyer then having the flexibility to upgrade the furnace to the quality of unit they really want.
“Some manufacturers offer a secondary owner warranty on the heat exchanger, but not all of them,” Conner says. “Plus, that language covers only the part itself and not the labor charge.”
