Amana Air Conditioner Reviews - Consumer Ratings | Questions for the Salesman/Dealer:
- If you are purchasing the communicating system does it come with the ability to change the thermostat with a conventional thermostat? The purpose of this is that most communicating systems come with a proprietary thermostat that you will have to buy from the dealer. What if the thermostat went bad on a Friday. Will you have to wait until Monday to get it fixed whereas if you had the conventional thermostat you can pick one up at the hardware store and be in business again in a few hours.
- Does Amana offer and extended parts and labor warranty? Parts warranties are standard but parts and labor warranty is a big bonus even if it cost you a few dollars to purchase one. If you are buying the top of the line Amana air conditioner the extended warranty is what you want if one is available.
