HVAC Warranty Plan

Learn what is covered under a HVAC warranty plan and how it works.

What is a HVAC Home Warranty Plan?

A home warranty plan is a tool that helps homeowners protect their budgets when the inevitable happens: the breakdown of a home’s systems or appliances. Unfortunately, a home’s systems and appliances don’t last forever, and when they fail, it’s usually when a homeowner is least expecting it. Any homeowner who has had their air conditioner go out in the summer can tell you that not only is it hot and miserable, it can be extremely stressful to find a contractor and schedule a diagnosis. That’s where a home warranty comes in handy. The home warranty company helps connect contractors and homeowners for HVAC failure diagnoses and helps with repairs and replacements of covered systems and appliances.

No matter what home warranty plan you choose from Landmark, you will get some level of HVAC coverage. On even our most basic of plans, the major mechanical parts and components of the following HVAC systems are covered: ​​​​​​​

  • Ducted electric central air
  • Ducted forced air heating systems
  • Gas heating systems
  • Electric central heating systems
  • Air source heat pumps

Landmark’s HVAC home warranty plans also cover unlimited units, which means you do not have to purchase additional coverage if you have more than one HVAC unit for your home. Different home warranty plans offer even more home warranty HVAC coverage, so make sure to look through every home warranty plan Landmark offers in your state.

When a mechanical part or component of a covered HVAC system fails from normal wear and tear, a homeowner can open a service request with Landmark Home Warranty. Landmark will send out a qualified contractor to diagnose the HVAC unit and, if the failure is covered under the terms of the contract, the home warranty company will pay to have the HVAC unit repaired or replaced.

The Benefits of Getting an HVAC Warranty

The average lifespan and costs of a HVAC home warranty plan.

A home warranty plan that offers HVAC coverage can be a huge benefit to a homeowner. On average, the lifespan of an HVAC system is between 7 and 15 years, according to the International Association of Certified Home Inspector’s Life Expectancy chart. When the HVAC system has become too old to function properly and fails from normal wear and tear, it costs an average of $163 - $539 to repair it and $3,752 - $7,265 to replace it entirely, according to Home Advisor’s True Cost Guide. With an HVAC warranty plan from Landmark, as long as the repair or replacement is covered and within the monetary limits of the contract, a homeowner will most likely only pay their service call for diagnosis.

Which Home Warranty Plan Should You Pick for HVAC Coverage?

Landmark Home Warranty offers multiple home warranty plans with HVAC coverage included. If you have lived in your home for longer than 30 days, you can choose between:

The Home Systems Plan, which offers coverage on a home’s electrical, plumbing, heating, and cooling systems.

The Total Protection Plan, which includes everything in the Home Systems Plan, but adds coverage on the home’s main appliances, such as the refrigerator, oven, and washer and dryer.

If you have lived in your home for less than 30 days, or if you are in the process of purchasing a home, you can get HVAC coverage with any of our four plans in your state.

The Essential Plan offers coverage on the same four main home comfort systems, as well as a select number of home appliances. This home warranty plan is the most basic plan and covers the items mentioned above.

The Advantage Plan includes everything the Essential Plan includes, but with some additional coverage on select systems and appliances. With the HVAC home warranty coverage in particular, the Advantage Plan offers refrigerant recovery, recapture, and recharge capped at $20 a pound.

If you’re ready to purchase one of these plans, then…
