We recommend if you purchase any American Standard HVAC appliance with the communication ability that you also purchase an extended parts and labor warranty. Standard warranties typically only cover parts and not labor. The top of the line models have bells and whistles. These features usually makes things a bit more complex. It adds a level of difficulty for troubleshooting. It is why we recommend the parts and labor warranty if available.
