FAQ: Does my warranty cover appliance upgrades?

February 3, 2015

It's only natural that you'll want to upgrade an appliance. It seems that options are endless when it comes to microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers and other household items. But the question is - does your HMS warranty cover the upgrade? 

The simple answer is no. However, don't be discouraged from making a purchase you've always wanted. Everyone deserves to live in his or her dream home, so go ahead and splurge. 

Although the warranty doesn't cover the price of an upgrade, you can apply for a claims credit for covered mechanically failed systems or appliances. If you receive the credit, it can be used in conjunction with deep discounts offered through HMS's Appliance Buyline program. You may end up saving more money this way than heading to your local store to find a new dishwasher or washing machine.

If you have any questions as to how to apply for the credit, or what items are offered through the aforementioned program, contact an HMS representative. He or she can help you with any questions or concerns 24 hours per day, 365 days a week.
