Understanding Water Heater Warranties

Being a homeowner comes with lots of responsibilities. When you buy a new house there are lots of things on minds of the homeowner: the location, floor, roof, plumbing, electricity etc. Even though it’s quite important, many homeowners don’t consider the potential problems with the appliances and if their warranty covers them. Residents of Blair County don’t need to worry about this now because Mr. Rooter Plumbing is here to help you.

Essentiality Of the Water Heaters

For many chores residents depend on water. It is impossible to cook, take a shower or do the dishes without water running. Therefore, water heater is an essential part of the household and if it somehow breaks down, it can be a real headache for the homeowner due to expenses. Most homeowners either wouldn’t think if their warranty would cover such a malfunction, or don’t know if it does. This is where Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Blair County comes in. For a little to no cost, we will go through your warranty and figure out what it covers.

Types and Factors of Warranties

Like other appliances, water heaters come with a warranty to ensure water heater repair in case of a malfunction. 6, 9, and 12-year warranties are available for water heaters, but many factors must be taken into consideration in these warranties. Because of this there are types of water heater warranties. There are appliance warranties that can vary based on the brand of the manufacturer, model of the water heater (ones with tanks, tankless water heaters, heat pump water heaters etc.), usage terms, and how the water heater installation was made. For it to be covered by the warranty, it is important for the buyer to register the serial number of the heater. The buyer usually has 30 days to do it. There are also home warranties. These are yearly contracts that don’t cover the water heater individually like the appliance warranties, instead they cover many appliances and systems in home and water heater is included to it.

Which One is Advantageous?

It would be incorrect to say that one type of warranty is better than the other one because both can be advantageous depending on your situation. It is possible for you to buy an old house and the owners before you might have an existing warranty or there might not be warranty at all left from the previous homeowners. For individuals in this situation, home warranties can be very useful. However, if you are buying a new water heater, appliance warranty can do repairment and replacement and it will be covered for almost its entire lifecycle. In addition to this, most manufacturers provide an extended warranty service, which is beneficial if warranty is approaching to the end.

Your Savior Is Here!

In case of an emergency with your water heater, understanding what your warranty covers can be confusing due to different terms and details of the warranty. Also, choosing the type of warranty that is best for the home can be hard and complicated for the owner.
