Free Home Warranty and Free Appliance RecallChek

As a free service to our home buyer clients, WIN Home Inspection in Lancaster, PA offers a Free 90 Day Limited Home Warranty and a Free Appliance RecallChek®. This is yet another way that we set ourselves apart from other inspection companies. The free home warranty and free appliance RecallChek® offer is valid only on single-family homes (not valid on multi-unit, rental or commercial properties).

90 Day Structural & Mechanical Warranty

The Free 90 Day Structural and Mechanical Warranty is provided to our buyer clients at absolutely no cost and there is no deductible paid should a claim be needed. This warranty program is different from the various 1 year home warranties that you can purchase from 3rd parties.

The free home warranty begins the day the home inspection is performed and continues for 90 days. If there is an extended closing period, the warranty company extends coverage for an additional 22 days after closing at no cost! Should a repair be needed, this warranty allows the client to choose the repairman of their choice at no cost and there is no deductible.

The free home warranty's coverage includes most central Heating and Air Conditioning, Plumbing, Electrical, and Structural components as well as built-in Kitchen Appliances, Gas Lines, Roof Leaks, Water Heaters, etc. with no deductibles paid. Some limitations do apply. Only major appliances that are inspected and functional at the time of the home inspection are covered under this warranty (pre-existing conditions are not included).

 RecallChek®

RecallChek® is the first service for consumer recalls in the United States and has compiled a database of over 195 million recalls from public records, to create a fail-safe system to check for potentially dangerous flaws with home appliances. If a manufacturer designs or produces a dangerous product, they MUST issue a recall and fix the product free of charge.

The appliance RecallChek® is FREE on all of our complete home inspections for our home buyer clients. Historically, 1 out of 10 appliances is subject to a manufacturer’s recall for either a fire, electrical shock, or another serious safety hazard. RecallChek® provides up-to-date important information to appliance owners that can save lives. RecallChek® also sends updated Recalltrak® reports on a quarterly basis to the home owner in case future recalls are issued.

Many potential safety hazards exist due to manufacturer recalls on appliances, but how do you know if the home you are purchasing has a recalled appliance? You’ll receive a FREE Recall Report within 48 hours of your home inspection and you will get monthly updates for as long as you wish. You can also add additional or as many appliances as you want anytime. Click Logo to find out more about how RecallChek® works and let us know if you have any questions.

WIN Home Inspection records the model numbers of the accessible built-in major appliances during the home inspection and submits this data to RecallChek®. Appliances with manufacturer data that can not be readily or safely accessed or is no longer readable as well as appliances that are not included in the home's transaction are not included in the RecallChek®. The major appliances that we typically include are: refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher, built-in microwave oven, water heater, A/C compressor, and central heating system. The client can even add appliances to their RecallChek® account at a later date should access later be provided. Future appliances that the client purchases can also be added to their RecallChek® account for free for future recall notifications.

This program is important because many home owners do not fill out manufacturer registration cards when they buy a new appliance. This registration process would typically be the only method for a manufacturer to notify consumers of a specific product recall. Also, if the original appliance owner moves and a new owner takes possession of the home (and the included appliances), the RecallChek® program would likely be the only way the new owner would be made aware of a product recall. RecallChek® extends for the life of your appliances.

Important Note: The Free Home Warranty and Free Appliance RecallChek® are provided by a third party company which is unrelated to WIN Home Inspection Elizabethtown.  A third party(s) company unrelated to WIN Home Inspection will contact the client to finalize the warranty application and provide a special offer approximately 2 months after the inspection date. Our client must respond to this contact for the warranty process to be finalized. The decision of the home warranty provider to honor a warranty claim is the home warranty provider's alone.  WIN Home Inspection assumes or accepts no liability or responsibility by providing the Free Home Warranty and/or the Free RecallChek® to our home buyer clients. For more information about the Free Home Warranty and Free RecallChek®, please contact us.
