The smooth operation of your home may be greatly attributed to the different appliances you have in your possession. From your washing machines to your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) units, they all work in harmony to make your home what it is now, or could be.
Laundering, cleaning, cooking, and various other household affairs are made much simpler because of such appliances. When buying them, the chances of receiving a defected unit, although slim, are still very much present. To protect the dignity of both purchasers and manufacturers, home appliance warranties have been put in place.
What is an Appliance Warranty, and What’s in it for You?
As much as companies and manufacturers try to avoid it, malfunctions and impairments are inevitable. Appliances go through various rigid screening processes before they are released, but some things are simply beyond control.
However, it is good to note that as inevitable as defects are, corporations have overcome this utilizing home appliance warranties. So, what are these and what do they entail?
Home appliance warranties are written guarantees by manufacturers to replace or repair appliances (should they prove to be defective) within a specified time. More than anything, these are made for the sole purpose of the immediate correction of what could have been a misstep in the production of an appliance.
It is through warranties that the virtue of companies and patrons are honored. For one, the quality of an item is secure under the assurance of replacement or repair, and companies are thus given an opportunity to live up to their name and reputation. You can be confident in paying for the best.
What Do Home Appliance Warranties Cover?
Truthfully, it is more comforting not to have to use a warranty. This implies an efficient, perfectly working model and that is in everyone’s best interest. However, one must know the scope and limitations of warranties, should the need arise.
Warranties generally cover the following (although terms and conditions may vary according to each company):
● Parts and labor that are free of charge in case an appliance is defective by nature of production
This means that units, which are defective due to neglect, wear and tear, or improper use do not fall under the category of failure in craftsmanship. Warranties cannot be used to fix or change appliances of this sort.
● The validity of three months to over a year
As mentioned above, this is subject to change for different companies. However, it can be noted that warranties generally last for about a year for most home appliances.
After a year, you have the option of investing in extended warranties.
Simply put, it prolongs that warranty for your appliance. While the debate is still up as to whether or not these are a good investment, professionals recommend them mostly for large appliances, and to simply ensure the smaller ones are well taken care of.
Perhaps a more forward-looking and promising investment is maintenance. You can hardly go wrong when calling up a professional to check-up on your HVAC unit, for example, or perhaps your refrigerator or washing machine. In which case, they have top of the line equipment and more than sufficient knowledge to keep your appliances running smoothly.
However, in the event that your appliance confirms inefficiency and faultiness, do not hesitate to call upon your manufacturer and make use of your warranty. You must learn to claim your right to good quality appliances and services.
