Overview

You depend on hot water for showering, washing and laundry. Problems with your natural gas water heater can be a major inconvenience, and finding a qualified professional can be time-consuming and costly. As a homeowner, you may be financially responsible for repairs to your water heater.

With the Water Heater Repair and Replacement Plan from HomeServe, you can help protect yourself from the cost and hassle of emergency water heater repairs. The coverage provides multiple service calls, up to $1,000 of covered costs to repair or replace a tank-based electric, natural gas or propane water heater that is damaged due to normal wear and tear (30-day waiting period with a money-back guarantee. 90-day waiting period before you can make a replacement service call). If your water heater can't be repaired, the balance of your annual benefit can be applied to a like-for-like replacement.
