Budget Heating is required by State Law to collect and remit sales tax at the % rate defined by the State and Local Governments. Currently and subject to change Budget Heating only collects and remits sales tax in the States of Florida and Texas. This is subject to change at any point in time with or without advanced notice, based on the constantly evolving rules governing eCommerce sales and tax collection requirements. In States that Budget Heating does not collect and remit sales tax it is your responsibility as the customer to report as Use Tax. The % rate Budget Heating collects and remits is a combination of the State % + County %. In Florida our facilities are located in Hillsborough County which as of January 1st 2019 requires a 2.5% local tax in addition to the State tax of 6% for a combined total of 8.5% collected and remitted. In Texas our facilities are located in Harris County which requires a 2% local tax in addition to the State tax rate of 6.25% for a combined total of 8.25%. Please Note: In order to for Budget Heating to accept a Tax Exempt Certificate we must have a copy of your certificate on hand for the current tax year and the form of payment must match the business name or personal name listed on the Tax Exempt Certificate in order to be considered valid and accepted prior to tax being removed. If Budget Heating and Air fails to receive a valid tax certificate within 30 days from the date of the order we will not refund sales tax. If an order is shipping international Budget Heating cannot and will not remove or refund sales tax until provided with proof that the order has left the Country. This can be provided in the form of a Bill of Lading or Shipment Manifest. We will not refund sales tax paid if this proof of international shipment is received after 30 days from date of Budget Heating shipment of order to Freight Forwarder or Exportation Company.
If your order has not shipped or been picked up, we will refund 100% of your payment if paid by cash, money order, or cashiers check.
If your order has not shipped or been picked up, we will refund 97% of your payment if paid by credit card, Debit card, paypal, or wire transfer.
If your order has been shipped or been picked up and you have not unpacked or opened your order, we will refund 90% less any shipping charges incurred to and from your destination.
If you have received your order and opened it, and it cannot be returned in the original condition as shipped, we will refund upon receipt and inspection an amount that is fair and equitable to both parties.
We cannot accept the return of used or installed equipment or parts.
After payment is received, your order will be processed within 2-3 business days. Your order will be shipped by the following means. If the order is over 100 pounds we will ship on a trucking line strapped to a pallet and shrink wrapped for safety of your order. Please allow 7 to 10 days to arrive. Items under 100 pounds will be sent UPS or FedEx please allow 5 days to arrive.
It is our company and the trucking company’s policy to tell you to allow 7 to 10 days for delivery, but in most cases it will arrive sooner. The trucking company will not be able to tell you where the shipment is in transit, so please do not call and ask. In the unlikely event your shipment is late contact our office at 813-885-7999.
If your shipment is going to a business address, a semi truck has to be able to gain access to the business, it must have a loading dock and it cannot be in a residential area or a terminal address. You will be responsible for any additional charges if misinformation is given.
If your shipment is going to the trucking company distribution center, they will call you when shipment arrives. Your system in most cases will fit in a small pickup truck, SUV or van.
If your shipment is going to a residential address, it is vital that you or your authorized representative are present when the shipment arrives. The trucking company will call you before delivery to setup an appointment window to deliver curbside. Please note, because every shipping terminal does not have smaller trucks available, some restrictions may apply to residential deliveries. Below are just an example of the most common potential delivery restrictions. Other restrictions may still apply. Please contact us at 813-885-7999 if any of these are applicable to you.
1. Gravel or dirt roads leading up to address
2. Low hanging power lines
3. Dead End streets or long drives where a 48' to 53' truck is unable to turnaround to exit
4. Gated communities
5. Some rural addresses
6. Addresses directly off a major road or highway where stopping could be deemed hazardous or illegal
Budget Heating makes every effort to choose the best trucking company for your area and delivery type, however ultimately if a final destination delivery is deemed not possible by the trucking company, the customer may be required to make arrangements to meet the truck or pickup at the trucking company terminal. If this occurs please contact Budget so we can reimburse the residential portion of your shipping fees.
Regardless which type of shipping you chose, it is important that you open or remove the box and inspect all equipment pieces you purchased from us. Budget takes every precaution to package your items properly for shipment. It is possible that small dents or dings to the cabinets could be found. In this situation you should notate the damage on the trucking company delivery receipt and accept the shipment. Minor flaws are cosmetic and do not effect the operation of the system or warranty. In the event that major damage is evident, BE SURE to notate the damage on the trucking company delivery receipt and refuse the shipment.
In the unlikely event your order is damaged or items are missing and you have properly notated on the trucking company delivery receipt, the items will be reshipped to you as soon as possible at no additional charge.A damaged shipment is not grounds for cancelling your order.It is Budget Heating’s policy to reship your replacement item(s) provided you have properly notated the damage or missing items as outlined above.If you do not want to wait for your replacement, you will be subject to the cancellation policy.
IMPORTANT READ THE BELOW STATEMENT:

WE WILL HELP TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTS, HOWEVER YOU WILL HAVE TO FILE THE CLAIM DIRECTLY WITH THE TRUCKING COMPANY. IT IS CONSIDERED A CONCEALED DAMAGE CLAIM, AND BUDGET HEATING CANNOT GUARANTEE AN OUTCOME OF THE CLAIM OR PROMISE ANY MONETARY COMPENSATION.

All manufacturers warranties apply based on brand and equipment. Budget offers no labor warranty, as we are not installing your equipment. Your local contractor should supply you a labor warranty. Your local HVAC company can replace any parts under warranty. Budget will handle the parts exchange for you, a small processing fee may apply plus UPS or FedEx charges. You may also choose to have your local HVAC company process the warranty directly with the manufacturer of the equipment, your warranty is through the manufacturer NOT Budget Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc, however we will assist.
EXPEDITED PARTS WARRANTY
As a courtesy Budget Heating & Air will allow a customer to pay for the actual cost of the replacement part and send out to the customer prior to receiving the defective part back.
Please note: We have to charge this fee, because Budget Heating and Air must purchase the part at warranty cost and we do not receive credit from the manufacturer until we return the defective part to them. We must charge the upfront fee to cover our costs in the event you fail to return or return the part late, past the 20 day warranty window at which point it becomes a non-refundable order. Assuming the defective part is received back prior to the 20 day deadline, a credit will be issued for the cost of the part paid up front on the outbound warranty replacement order.
PLEASE NOTE: IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT BUDGET HEATING & AIR RECEIVES YOUR DEFECTIVE PART WITHIN 20 DAYS FROM THE DELIVERY DATE OF THE NEW PART. IF THE DEFECTIVE PART IS NOT RECEIVED BACK AT BUDGET WITHIN 20 DAYS FROM THE DELIVERY DATE OF THE NEW PART, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE CREDIT FOR THE WARRANTY PART DEPOSIT PAID ON THE OUTBOUND WARRANTY ORDER. IT BECOMES NON-REFUNDABLE AS WE CANNOT RETURN TO THE MANUFACTURER FOR CREDIT AFTER THIS TIME. FOR DATE DETERMINATION WE WILL USE THE PARCEL CARRIER (ex: UPS, FEDEX, USPS, etc.) TRACKING NUMBER AND PROOF OF DELIVERY RECEIPTS.
