Here is my thought about warranties:
Yesterday, (home) I woke up, had a good exercise worked out, jumped in the shower, burrrr
Went to the basement, checked the 8 year old hot water heater with the 9 year warranty. "tank Must be cleaned and inspected twice a year with prof of inspecting rods".
Last week, evening news, new home warranties. Deductibles, must use in program repair services. Someone in Cleveland had a warranty but repair service would need to travel from Michigan.
I am not one that the Best Buy, Kmart and car dealerships make the extra perk dollars for selling these services.
Agree with others, read the terms and conditions.
A really fun way to spend an an afternoon Not
PS Finally took a HOT shower, 9:30pm
