  • hot water to run out too quickly
  • no hot water for showering or washing and noise
  • odor due to sediment build-up

As a homeowner, you may be responsible for the water heater in your home, and you may have to arrange and pay for any necessary repairs. Below are some examples of covered water heater components. Breakdowns can happen regardless of the make or material, and many factors contribute to water heater breakdowns.

Overview

You depend on hot water for showering, washing and laundry. Problems with your natural gas water heater can be a major inconvenience. Finding a qualified professional can be time consuming and costly. Get protection help from the high cost of repairs with a home service repair plan from HomeServe. If your water heater can't be repaired, the balance of your annual benefit can be applied to a like-for-like replacement.

The Water Heater Repair and Replacement Program provides, up to the benefit amount, for the covered cost to repair or replace a tank-based electric, natural gas or propane water heater that is damaged due to normal wear and tear. If your water heater is deemed beyond repair, you can apply the balance of your repair plan’s benefit amount to a like-for-like replacement.
