If it was in your "wife's shop"-then thats a commercial application and the fine print in any warranty is one year only on commercial applications (even if its residential equipment). However, in a residential application the parts warranty is typically 10years.

Most of the equipment being sold online is from reputable contractors who will in fact register your system for a warranty extending in many times to 10-years.

A problem arises when a serialized unit sold in , say North Carolina, shows up in Arizona.

When a mfr.flat out states warranty void for all internet purchases and the selling company still registers it full well knowing the policy I wouldn't call them reputable. Fraudulent is a more fitting word.
