The Advantages of Getting a Product Warranty
A product you buy often has an implied product warranty, and those implications are created through consumer protection laws. There are also explicit warranties. These go above and beyond what is required by law. Manufacturers often use such product warranties to distinguish their products in the marketplace. There are also consumer expectations when it comes to products that require significant investments. Those major purchases include such things as air conditioners and roofing shingles.
As a leading HVAC company serving Bakersfield and the surrounding areas, Big Builders has learned that warranties are often a reflection of a manufacturer’s confidence in its own product. There is a reason certain brands can offer better terms.
Customer Peace of Mind
It also gives you peace of mind as a consumer. Although it’s highly unlikely, should you draw a lemon, you’re protected. The product will be repaired at the very least, and if the malfunction is particularly serious, a manufacturer will often replace the product outright.
Reduced Total Cost of Ownership
Generally, a good warranty will decrease total cost of ownership since it will eliminate or at least mitigate cost beyond maintenance and repairs related to normal wear and tear. Some manufacturers also offer extended warranties, and while they aren’t right for everyone, they can be valuable for the buyer who wants to ensure additional years of service from their new purchase.
Increased Resale Value
Product warranties on roofs and HVAC equipment are often transferrable in whole or in part. This may not mean much for the consumer who plans to remain in their home, but if you might sell your home within 10 years or so, this option could improve the value of the residence.
