A local reputable company installed new A/C in the house, 3 years ago: compressor warranty 10 years, parts 5 years, and labor 1 year. I bought the house couple of months ago, and the A/C keeps shutting off due to high pressure (the tech from the same company that installed the system couldn't tell whether there is a constriction in the condenser coil, evaporator, or the lines).
Long story short, they're telling me that I'm not covered by the manufacturer warranty (5 years for parts), because the contract was signed with the old owner. I've heard that before for the no-name mufflers that Midas installs, but this sounds like a lame excuse for a piece of equipment that's was a $3000+ to install. Any advice appreciated.
