Problems with your hot water heater can cause:

  • hot water to run out too quickly
  • no hot water for showering or washing
  • noise and 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.

*National average repair costs as of March 2018. No charge for covered repairs up to your annual benefit amount.

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. If your water heater can't be repaired, the balance of your annual benefit can be applied to a like-for-like replacement.
