Warranty Registration With Choice Home Warranty

When you spend your money on a product, an appliance or a home system, you want to make sure that if it breaks, you can get it repaired or replaced without having to spend additional money. This is why warranties are so important.

A warranty is a guarantee made by the manufacturer or seller to repair, replace or exchange a product within a specified time period should it break or not function as intended. Not all products come with a warranty, but often, they are available as an additional purchase. You can buy a warranty for a used car, laptop, bed, microwave or HVAC system, for example.

If you want to protect more than one home appliance, a home warranty protection plan is your best bet. Warranty registration is quick and convenient when you buy one service plan that covers all your essential home appliances and systems.

What Is Product Registration?

Whenever you purchase an appliance, an electronic device or a home system — such as a microwave, camera, or an HVAC system — you have the option of registering the product with the manufacturer and obtaining a warranty card.

Manufacturers may offer lifetime warranties, extended warranties or other perks if you register your product with the manufacturer within a certain time period. But when it comes to repair and replacement, your sales receipt, which includes information on your purchase and your warranty, should be all you need to file a warranty claim.

One of the few perks of having a product registered is that if it’s recalled by the manufacturer, then you will be notified. To register your new product, appliance or system, you will go through the manufacturer.

For warranty registration on your product or appliance, you’ll need general information for each product, piece of equipment or appliance.

Information Needed for Product Registration

  • Serial number and model number (which is available on your dealer invoice or on the unit)
  • Date of installation and installation number (also called the subscription number)
  • Your information (email address, phone number)
  • Type of purchase (replacement, new product/system)
  • Application type (residential, commercial)

It’s important to understand that by registering your information with manufacturers, you are giving them access to your customer data. This information is best used to market products and discounts to you in the future, which may or may not interest you.

Registering Your New Product with a Manufacturer

When it comes to buying a new appliance like a Goodman furnace or a Coleman stove, you’ll likely get the option of adding on a manufacturer’s warranty. Before you get coverage, you have to register your product, and typically it has to be registered within 60 days of installation.

Let’s say you’ve just bought and installed a new Trane HVAC system. It only takes a moment to register your Trane warranty. Have your product information on hand, including serial numbers, model numbers and installation date, as well as your personal information.

Make sure you read the details of your new warranty plan, so you know what’s covered and what’s not. The average HVAC warranty comes with limited coverage on parts, lasting anywhere from one to 20 years. However, Trane warranties, like most appliance warranties, don’t cover damage or failure from everyday wear and tear. That’s why extended home warranties are best for protecting your appliances and systems for the long haul.

Choice Home Warranty offers year-long warranty plans that automatically renew and keep you covered long after the original manufacturer’s warranty has ended.

How Long Do Warranties Last?

Warranties may or may not come with a product or appliance. If you buy a blender, for instance, you may receive a one-year warranty with the product. If you buy a car, you can buy a warranty — also called a service plan — to protect against high automotive maintenance and/or repair costs.

Manufacturers offer basic limited warranties on certain products such as home appliances, electronics or home systems, as well as extended warranties. An extended warranty may or may not begin after the original warranty expires and only covers that product.

What if you buy a new refrigerator with an extended warranty, but your reliable stove breaks? What if the warranty doesn’t last as long as the product? When it comes to manufacturers’ warranties, the appliance will likely outlast the warranty. Here are some examples:

  • Dishwashers typically last up to 12 years, and KitchenAid only offers a two-year limited warranty with the option of extending for three more years with limited coverage.
  • Refrigerators typically last up to 17 years, and Whirlpool only offers a one-year full warranty and the option of extending for four more years with limited coverage.
  • Clothes dryers typically last up to 13 years, and Maytag only offers a 10-year limited parts warranty.

If you buy a manufacturer’s warranty for your water heater that may last 10 or 12 years, and the warranty only lasts for six, you’ll end up paying extra for coverage, and in the end, the appliance may not even be covered when it needs a repair or replacement.***

Get the peace of mind you need with a home warranty protection plan. Instead of buying warranties for each home appliance or system, which may not cover the appliance or system for its lifetime, purchase a home warranty plan and get the comprehensive coverage through one company. Warranty registration doesn’t have to be stressful with a home warranty plan.

Choice Home Warranty plans come with one-year terms, with the option of renewing your plan each year. The plan begins 30 days after enrollment and receipt of applicable contract fees. The warranty registration process is simple. Get your free quote today, and get the first month free when you sign up for a single payment home warranty plan.

Home Warranty Registration: What Is Protected?

Instead of buying a warranty for each product or appliance and going through the product registration process multiple times with different manufacturers, consider a home warranty. Home warranty registration takes the stress out of covered home repair bills and helps protect your finances, should anything malfunction or break.

Protect not just one home appliance, but all of your appliances and systems under one warranty plan. A home warranty plan is a service agreement that helps cover the costs of included repairs or replacements on various home appliances and systems.***

If you have a new dishwasher, a new microwave and a new AC unit, then you can skip the various warranty plans or extended warranty plans that are available from the manufacturers and instead buy one home warranty plan from Choice Home Warranty. This service plan covers more than one home appliance and system, making it a convenient option for homeowners or home buyers.

With Choice Home Warranty, you have the option of buying the Basic Plan or Total Plan, and you can also purchase additional, optional coverage. Here is a list of what’s covered under Choice Home Warranty protection plans:*

Home Warranty Registration Process

It’s important to understand that by paying for a home warranty plan, you are choosing to register your home appliances and systems that are covered under your designated plan. If you buy a home warranty that covers your AC unit, for instance, you do not need to buy a manufacturer’s warranty for that AC unit.

How does the warranty registration process work? After your application is accepted by Choice Home Warranty, you send a detailed list of your home appliances and systems. This is so that if they do break or need replacing, you can easily file a claim. You do not need to get a home inspection to buy a home warranty.

Avoid the hassle and expense of multiple warranties and buy one protection plan. Having an issue with a home system or appliance? Choice Home Warranty will handle all your covered repairs or replacement systems as needed.* Unlike homeowners insurance, which protects your home should a natural disaster occur, a home warranty plan covers against normal wear and tear of appliances and systems.

Your appliances, furnaces and home systems won’t last forever, and you don’t want to get stuck paying hefty out-of-pocket expenses, which is why a service plan is highly recommended. You may set aside emergency savings, knowing something may break, but what if you need a more costly replacement?*** A garbage disposal, for instance, costs $400 on average to replace, according to HomeAdvisor. What if more than one appliance breaks? Can you afford to repair or replace them?

Without a home warranty plan, you also have to take service costs into account. For example, the average service cost for a handyman is $398. With Choice Home Warranty, all you pay is a nominal service call fee.

Who Pays For a Home Warranty?

Many times, home warranty plans are purchased by home sellers or real estate professionals. Often, these individuals will buy protection plans for new home buyers to give them peace of mind. If a covered item needs to be repaired or replaced in the first year and the new homeowners have a warranty plan, they won’t get stuck with expensive out-of-pocket costs.*

As a current or new homeowner, you can save time and money with a home protection plan. If you are new to an area or are sick of having to call multiple companies to fix various appliances or systems, you can sign up for a Choice Home Warranty plan and work with just one provider. Whether you need an electrician or a plumber to visit your home, we connect you to a local, licensed professional in your area.

No matter who pays for the plan, make sure you double-check the fine print, so you know what is and is not covered. If you have the option of choosing additional coverage — and with the best home warranty companies, you do — you may want to do so.
