There are roughly 100 manufacturers of air conditioners in the world today. That does not mean that all of them are readily available to Las Vegas residents. There are a number of units, which are just not that common in the United States. That being said most of them that are sold in the United States seem to be of higher quality and standard then you might find in other countries. It seems interesting to say that about an appliance when 90 percent of all electronics are produced overseas.
Many of the air conditioners that you would find such as American Standard, Trane, Carrier, Goodman, York, and Rheem are all made right here in the United States. These are commonly sold in Las Vegas. And for the most part offer similar technology and warranty. If you need an air conditioner you want to make sure that you purchase one where the warranty is honored by a local supply house. Having a 10 year warranty is great but if you have to wait 43 days for a part to be shipped to Las Vegas covered under warranty this is a bad scenario.
The one thing you have to keep in mind is an air conditioning warranty does not mean you will not have a problem at some point. It does mean that if an expensive components brakes on your air conditioner or heater that component is completely covered. On the other hand the warranty from the manufacturer will not cover labor past 90 days. After 90 days any necessary components will fall under the HVAC contractor’s labor warranty.
Most HVAC contractors in Las Vegas offer a 90 day to 1 year warranty on top of manufacturers warranty for labor. After that labor expenses involved in repairing a warranty item on your AC will fall on you. So be sure when you purchase a new air conditioning and heating system for your house that you do not scrimp on quality. Since part of the warranty will come out of your pocket if one repair is needed.
There is an alternative to short term labor warranties offered by HVAC contractors. 1 of those options it’s from a little known company located in Las Vegas call Arctic Heating and Air Conditioning Company. They offer a 3 year warranty on American Standard air conditioner units. Unfortunately that is the only product line that they offer a 3 year warranty on. They do a 12 month warranty, on other brands such as Goodman, York, Rheem and Carrier.
When the company was asked why they offer a three year warranty on American Standard and not other brands their answer was one of logic. “American Standard air conditioners have the least amount of call back of any AC manufacture that we install.” So it is with confidence that we offer a three year warranty on all air conditioning units that we install manufactured by American Standard. These units are of the utmost quality. This is not to say that you will never have a problem with American Standard heating and air conditioning units. Just at the problems are much fewer and seem to be less costly and complicated.
Arctic HVAC has actually gone one step further and offered a 3 year warranty on any part that they install on an A/c when doing an air conditioning repair. This is an unprecedented warranty for an HVAC contractor to offer. The next longest warranty offered by a contractor in Nevada for similar services is only a year. So it is an unbelievable value to have such peace of mind when the air conditioners fixed that it stays that way. Other components of your conditioner may break but if the one that they install brakes they will reinstall it at no charge and make the repair as needed.
One of the biggest concerns with most repairs to air conditioning units is that the unit continues to work after the AC technician has left. This is no longer a concern. Arctic uses top quality parts of the highest standard to make repairs to air conditioning units. These quality parts seem to only be fractionally more expensive than the cheaper version but quality in this can only make you sleep better. Their technicians are of the highest caliber and seem to genuinely care about the future of your air conditioning and heating. To keep your home comfortable, you would be wise to contact them at their website or by phone.
