If you have recently purchased a brand new HVAC unit, you might have been pretty excited about doing so. After all, along with other benefits, one benefit of having a brand new unit is that you should not really have to worry about any problems with your unit for a long time to come. Unfortunately, there are still cases in which even brand new HVAC units need repair. These are a few examples of scenarios in which this might happen.
There's a Defect With the Unit
If you purchased a brand new HVAC unit from a reputable manufacturer, then you should not have to worry about any problems with your unit. From time to time, however, even brand new HVAC units from good brands can have defects. If there is something wrong with your unit, there is a good chance that the unit's warranty will cover the cost of repairing it. If you contact an HVAC repair company, you can let them know about the problem. Then, they should be able to help you with repairing your unit and submitting a warranty claim so that you will not be the one who is on the hook for the cost of repairs.
The Installation Was Not Done Properly
You should be able to count on an HVAC professional to do a good job of installing your HVAC unit, but mistakes can still happen. If you installed your own unit or if you hired someone who wasn't properly certified, there is a higher chance that a mistake was made along the way. In these scenarios, you may need to call an HVAC repair professional to fix any related damage to your unit and to make sure that it hooked up properly. Then, hopefully, you will be able to use your new HVAC unit without worrying about any more problems.
There Has Been Storm-Related Damage
If a major storm has recently impacted your area—such as a hurricane or tropical storm—then there is a chance that your brand new HVAC unit might have been damaged in the process. A tree limb or some other type of debris might have struck the unit and caused damage, for example. This does not necessarily mean that your entire unit needs to be replaced, however, nor does it mean that your unit will never work properly again. An HVAC repair professional should be able to get your unit back in good shape, or they can let you know if a replacement is going to be your best bet.
