Free Home Warranty/Free Appliance RecallChek

As a free service to our full inspection pre-sale home buyer clients, WIN Home Inspection in Lancaster, PA offers a free limited structural/mechanical warranty and a free appliance RecallChek® report. This is yet another way that WIN sets itself apart from other inspection companies. Note - These free programs are valid only with single-family home buyer inspections (not valid on multi-unit, rental or commercial properties) where a full or condo inspection is performed before closing. Post-settlement inspections are not eligible for the RecallChek® or home warranty.

90 Day Structural & Mechanical Warranty

The Free 90 Day Structural & Mechanical Warranty is provided to our home buyer clients at no cost and there is no deductible paid should a claim be needed. The free home warranty begins the day the home inspection is performed and continues for 90 days or 22 days past closing, whichever is longer. 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 paid.

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, and more. Some limitations do apply. Only major appliances that are inspected and found to be functional at the time of the home inspection are covered under this warranty.

The appliance RecallChek® is free on all of our full home and condo inspections for our home buyer clients. RecallChek® has compiled a database of over 195 million recalls from public records, to create a fail-safe system to check for potentially dangerous flaws in home appliances. If a manufacturer designs and produces a dangerous product, they MUST issue a recall and repair the product free of charge.

Historically, 1 out of every 10 appliance is subject to a manufacturer's recall either for a fire, electrical shock, or other serious safety hazard. RecallChek® provides up-to-date important information to appliance owners that can potentially save lives. RecallChek® also sends updated RecallTrak® reports on a monthly basis to the homeowner in case a future recall is issued.

Many potential safety hazards exist due to manufacturer recalls on appliances, but how do you know if the home you are buying has any potentially unsafe recalled appliances? You'll receive your free RecallChek® report within 48 hours after your home inspection. Click on the RecallChek® logo above to find out more about how RecallChek® works and watch the short video below. 

Since most consumers don't send in their registration cards when they buy a new appliance, appliance manufacturers would have no idea of knowing who bought a specific recalled appliance. That is where RecallChek® comes in. Keep in mind that only appliances who's model and serial numbers that can be fully read can be included in your RecallChek® report. Should you be able to access a previously-inaccessible model or serial number, you can add that appliance to your RecallChek® report later. Also, future major appliances that our clients purchase can also be added to their RecallChek® account for free for potentially future recall notifications.

Important Note: The Free Structural/Mechanical Home Warranty and Free Appliance RecallChek® are provided by a third party company, Residential Warranty Services (RWS).  The decision of the warranty provider to honor a warranty claim is the home warranty provider's alone.  WIN Home Inspection assumes and accepts no liability or responsibility by providing the free warranty and/or RecallChek® to our clients. For more information about the free warranties and free RecallChek®, please contact us.
