They are only as good as the company that underwrites them. Companies fold, get bought or simply dissolve.
the local dealer charged me $80 to do the annual maintenance inspection to keep the warranty live. during his inspections of all the seals/caulk he found a hole in the roof (maybe a branch hit it) and he sealed it up and was no extra charge. If i didnt have to have the inspection done for the warranty i probably wouldnt have and that hole would not have been found and cost leak damage. So glad i had a warranty making me get the inspection.
in regards to the warranty, i opted out of adding it to my deal, i typically dont buy warranties, but when signing my final papers and picking up my unit, the sales manager (old friend) tossed the warranty in for me at no charge.... so i will keep getting the annual inspection. it will be a good piece of mind and if the warranty ever covers something, great.
