3 Tips for Finding the Best Water Heater Warranty, La Crosse, Wisconsin

If you love hot showers and effective cleaning, your home’s water heater might be tremendously important to you. Unfortunately, like any home appliance, water heaters aren’t immune to wear and tear, which is why you should invest in a water heater warranty when you purchase your device. Here are three tips for finding the best water heater warranty that will allow you to protect your investment.

Understand Coverage Limits

Depending on the water heater warranty, your paperwork might not cover damage due to hard water, installation errors, or even certain failed components. Before you choose a water heater warranty, read through the paperwork carefully to determine what the company will cover. Also, check to see if there are dates involved with coverage limits. For example, your warranty might only be in effect for five years from the date of purchase, instead of the lifespan of the appliance.

Consider the Warranty Provider

water heaterOftentimes, retailers offer complimentary or low-cost warranties for a set amount of time after the purchase. Unfortunately, these warranties don’t always cover brand name replacement parts or service from technicians certified to work on your water heater, which could cause problems down the road. Instead, always choose a warranty provided by the manufacturer of the water heater.

Read the Fine Print

Water heater warranties also normally come with contingencies for coverage. For example, your warranty might only be in effect if you replace a specific part when you should or drain the tank regularly. Before you choose a warranty, read the fine print so that you know how to protect your coverage.
