Attention Seasonal Residents - HVAC Extended Service Plan
While you were gone a systemic HVAC issue was investigated and resolved in cooperation with local contractors and finally in agreement with The Villages for an extended HVAC extended service plan at no cost to you. A summary of the plan follows along with a claim form if needed. For additional information or questions, contact The Villages Home Warranty Department 352-753-6222. Plan summary:
Cost to Homeowner - $0
Effective Date - September 15, 2011. See ―Term‖ section below.
Coverage - Repair and replacement of HVAC copper refrigerant lines, together with the cost of the repair and/or replacement of other air conditioner components whose failure is reasonably related to the failure or leaking of such HVAC lines due to corrosion.
Assignability - Automatically extends to subsequent owners.
Term - This ten (10) year term will cover new homes sold before and after the Effective Date. Examples of how the term will be applied:
- A new home sale closing that occurred eight (8) years before the Effective Date (September 15, 2003) will be covered by the Plan for matters falling within the Plans Coverage back to September 15, 2003, and for an additional two (2) years going forward so that the effective term of the Plan is ten (10) years for the home.
- New homes sales occurring on October 1, 2011, will be covered by the Plan until October 1, 2021.
- New home sales closing prior to September 15, 2001 will not be covered by the Plan.
Limitations - After September 15, 2011, all requests for work under this Extended Service Plan must go through The Villages Home Warranty Department (352-753-6222) so that the obligations of the manufacturers and installers can be maintained. Similarly, all requests for reimbursement for past air conditioner repair work will be processed by The Villages Home Warranty Department.
All future service work not going through The Villages Home Warranty Department will void this Extended Service Plan.
The costs of simply upgrading an existing air conditioning system, cosmetic changes, and other air conditioner matters not resulting from a HVAC line failure are not covered by the Extended Service Plan, but some of these air conditioner matters may be covered under the manufacturer or installers warranty. Check with The Villages Home Warranty Department if you have questions.
There are no warranties, express or implied, which extend beyond the Coverage described above.
