What’s the Big Deal about an Aftermarket Warranty?
Is a Home Warranty Considered an Aftermarket Warranty?
Aftermarket warranty and extended warranty – these terms are basically synonymous for warranties on products whose manufacturer’s warranty is either expired or nonexistent. As homes have no manufacturer’s warranty, they fall into this category of requiring aftermarket or extended warranties. This is why 365 offers systems support in its standard and premium plans – because there is no one manufacturer to call when your plumbing fails or you’re A/C goes out on 4th of July weekend. 365 Home Warranty bundles its systems warranties with appliance protection for your fridge, microwave, dryer, and even your doorbell.
What Can an Aftermarket Warranty Cover?
The aftermarket warranty itself can cover home systems and home appliances. We know that it can be hard to pay upfront preventative costs, which is why we offer a spectrum of coverage options. Under some plans, like the Basic Plan, you can choose up to five household appliances on the list (it sounds harsh, but it’s much easier than choosing favorites amongst your kids – your priorities can come down to which appliance gives you crushed ice versus providing a hot meal). Other plans offer full coverage of a range of kitchen appliances, electrical appliances, high-end appliances, and home systems.
Below are a few examples of household appliances that we cover at 365 Home Warranty:
- Air conditioner
- Garbage Disposal
- Washing Machine
- Water Heater
