HVAC Ownership: Understanding the Florida AC Warranty Law

Introduction to the Florida AC Warranty Law

The Florida AC Warranty Law, effective from July 1, 2023, marks a significant advancement in residential HVAC system management. This groundbreaking legislation ensures that HVAC warranties are now attached to the property rather than the homeowner, simplifying the transfer process during property sales.

What Does This Mean for You?

Under the new law, when you buy a home with an existing HVAC system, the manufacturer’s warranty will automatically transfer to you, without the need to re-register the warranty or incur any transfer fees. This change ensures continuous coverage, enhancing the value and appeal of homes with installed systems.

Key Benefits of the New Florida AC Warranty Law

  • Seamless Transfers: Warranties that previously might have expired upon property transfer now continue with the new owner.
  • No Extra Costs: Homeowners are exempt from any fees that might have been charged for transferring warranty coverage.
  • Uninterrupted Protection: The existing terms of the warranty remain unchanged, providing peace of mind to new homeowners.
