A great way for No Problem to describe the Warranty Claim Process is that as a Warranty Customer, you’ve given them the ability to make decisions for what’s best for your situation, based on your warranty company’s contract. They are the very powerful middle-man that will be making the ultimate decision on whether No Problem can send them the bill for the sometimes expensive repairs that can arise from your aging HVAC system. No Problem in no way can determine the warranty companies decision on the claim or how the situation with your HVAC will fall onto the legal terms of your contract with the warranty company, we are just the Contractor.

The Upgrade Process – Take the Power Back
Now that we have established an understanding of our visit to your home, and your warranty companies’ established processes, a question may arise; What can you do to capitalize on your Warranty Claim? The answer is simple, The Upgrade Process. While at your home, your No Problem Warranty Certified Technician will likely find issues with your equipment. These issues can be addressed in two separate ways:
- Take the repair, which will typically return your equipment back to the state it was in when you started with your Home Warranty Company, OR

No Problem loves visiting your home and we look forward to every opportunity to service your equipment and provide you with our renown 5 star service. We also feel, that in most cases, with a No Problem System, it’s the best way to ensure you are not left to the extremes that Missouri weather has to offer. When replacing a part in your AC or Furnace, every part surrounding and aiding the part is just as old as the system itself. No Problem honestly feels that best way we as a company can take care of our customers, is to replace your equipment to keep from costly and timely repeat visits. The No Problem Warranty Certified Technician will do everything they can to get your old system up and running, but we unfortunately can’t predict the future. If reliability and comfort are a concern, a No Problem System may be the right decision for your warranty claim.

Warranty Claim Denials
Uh-oh! This is the worst possible scenario for your Claim with your Home Warranty Company. When this occurs, the Warranty Company has denied No Problem from replacing or repairing your system and possibly left you, their customer, in a bad spot. Please understand, we are here with you! A denial of your claim with your Home Warranty Company, also denies No Problem from billing them for the repair or replacement. Your Home Warranty Company Claim, once denied by their Authorization Department, is no longer able to be utilized by the customer and billed upon by No Problem.
Your Home Warranty Workflow
1) Customer has a problem with their HVAC Equipment
Be sure to verify whether it’s your HVAC equipment, Plumbing (water heater included), or the Electrical System. Delays can occur when a claim is sent out to the wrong Professional, typically the claim process starts over.
2) Open a claim with your home warranty company
Your deductible is due at this time to your home warranty company. A provider will be dispatched by your home warranty company. No Problem cannot control who the warranty company will send the claim to, it could possible be another company.
3) Wait, this is the hardest part!
Your warranty company will send a dispatch through their system. We do not have access to this system and can not do anything to change or speed up how your Warranty Company sends out information about your claim.
4) Scheduling of visit
After receipt of your claim information from your home warranty company, you’re now ready to be scheduled. No Problem has technicians that spend countless hours in training to asses your HVAC needs and apply those needs to your Warranty Company’s coverages.
5) Claim Assessment
No Problem has to send only our Certified Warranty Claim Specialist to asses your system and how to bill your Warranty Company. We are limited on which technicians can assess your HVAC needs and what we can or cannot bill your home warranty company for.
6) Is your Warranty Claim over $500?
More waiting, if the claim exceeds this threshold, your Warranty Company requires us to take pictures of the system, gather your system’s information, and submit it to your Warranty Company.
7) Warranty Decision on Claim
Depending on the contract you’ve signed with your Home Warranty Company and what it says on that contract, they will notify you and No Problem on their decision with the claim.
8) Approval of Non-Covered Charges
This is a very key part of your warranty process. Your Warranty Company will call you and you’ll need to approve to pay for the non-covered charges. This is a dollar amount that your contract with them says you as their customer are responsible for.
9) Revisit for Part Replacement or Installation
The warranty company will purchase the part and/or equipment and send it to No Problem, this can often be very lengthy depending on part availability and the mode of shipment decided by your Home Warranty Company.
