More than meets the eye. What we can't see.
Many of my followers with this post knows we at Desert Sun Home Inspections in Carlsbad New Mexico now offer a 90 day warranty along with a Recallchek for the appliances in the home.
What's the catch you say?
The 90 day warranty is just that. A 90 day warranty.
This covers any structural and other issues that may arise after the home inspection is completed.
The Recallchek, is for working appliances in the home. At the time of inspection of the home.This would include but not limited to a Water heater, Furnace, A/C unit, Heat pumps, Dishwasher, Fridge, Range, Garage door closer, Built in Micro wave oven, Garbage disposal.
We as inspectors that offer these services need to act like the Recallchek Sheriff in town.
If the unit doe's not operate when the home inspection takes place then it will not be added to the Recallchek list of covered appliances.
Take for instance my last home inspection. The dishwasher had been disconnected and was not in use.
This unit was not added to the Recallchek list because it was not in operation and working at time of the home inspection.
The dishwasher was listed in the report as "Not working and in need of service to determine the condition of the unit".
When the unit is checked out by the proper service tech. Then it may hae been recalled and the tech should know this.
Like all cases of insurance and warranty related issues. Not everything is covered by a warranty or even the Recallchek.
Have a great day every one.
