    HVAC warranty survey

    What HVAC thing was/is it?
    How long was/is the warranty?
    How long until the first failure that was covered under warranty?
    How long until the first failure of any kind?

    Thanks, folks. . .

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    OK, 10 yrs and 0 failures within 9 yrs. for an American Standard. From my data 12% of "HVAC units" have already been replaced within this period, for any number of reasons.
    If I get enough responses that call out the brand I may be able to guesstimate brand reliability as reported on this forum, not just general warranty performance.

    Do I need rum to understand the question?

    What kind of rum?
    Any accessories installed with the rum? Coke? Fruit Juice? Ice? Umbrella?

    At least Consumer's uses real statisticians, so that is sort of a compliment.

    Not really.

    They aren't anywhere close.

    So yours will probably be less accurate.
