Expert Ideas for a Healthier Home

Repair fees for home appliances can be costly. And without warranties, you are putting your wallets at risk. That is why we recommend warranty services after getting an appliance repaired. It is your guarantee that your product will work at its best.

It doesn’t matter if your item has been handled by the best professional or technician. There are inevitable circumstances that might damage your appliance once again. Question is, are you willing to pay for another repair cost? Or should you protect yourself by getting service warranties? Apparently, the latter option is the better.

It Saves You Money and it Lessens Your Worries

As mentioned, there are many factors why your appliances might get damaged. Even those who use it carefully can be a victim of faulty items. What if someone accidentally spilled water on your appliances? Or what if your electricity affected its functions? Not getting service warranties will require you to pay every time you take your broken appliance to a service center. If you want to waste money, then be our guest. Remember, you might be spending twice as much, even thrice if you don’t get service warranties.

What do you have to keep in mind when looking for service warranties?

The truth is, not all service warranties are created equal. This depends on the company where you purchased it. Here are some of the things you need to consider if you are to get one.

Pool of Experts

Check if their representatives and technicians are expert in their field. You can look at their clientele and from there, you can already assess if your appliance can be entrusted to them. If you get service warranties from a not-so reputable company, you might end up having damaged items again, and you will be spending for more. In addition, verify if the company is an authorized service provider of the brand of your appliance.   

Longer Period for Warranties

A lot of companies only offer a 3-month warranty even for major services. But if you are going to ask the experts, that’s a very short time frame. Look for service centers that provide 1-year warranties, most especially if you are after major purchases like your refrigerator or air condition.

Agreeable Terms and Conditions

When you get a service warranty, it is essential that you read the terms and conditions. Don’t forget the FINE PRINT. Make sure that it is beneficial to both parties. Otherwise, you might be paying for something worthless. Why don’t you look for a service that covers your entire home for one year such as HomeProtect?   

Easy To Reach Out To

If you want quality service, it is not enough that a company has the best technicians. One should be able to have a system where you can contact them immediately. Having a secured online presence should help too. It builds transparency and completes the service efficiently. A good company knows how to value your time and to keep up with technology.   

Credible

Lastly, look for a service center that has already established its name in the industry. You wouldn’t want to transact with fly-by-night businesses. Would you? The company should be able to service major brands like Samsung, Whirlpool, LG, Hitachi, Fisher & Paykel, and Bosch to name a few.

Now, let’s go back to our question, are service warranties worth it? If you found the right one, then it is a YES!
